Getting Started: Different ways to use ResultsPlus Booster
ResultsPlus Booster is best when used along with the corresponding Pearson textbook, but serves as a great supplement to any text that might be in use.
Introducing ResultsPlus Booster
ResultsPlus Booster helps students to carry on learning and improving their skills in mathematics beyond the classroom. Traditionally, if a student gets stuck on a problem, they are not able to progress until their teacher is available to help them. By providing learning tools at every step of the way, ResultsPlus Booster allows students to help themselves and so get an improved independent learning experience.
We recommend that ResultsPlus Booster is introduced during a lesson to help get students registered on the system and used to finding their way around the product.
ResultsPlus Booster as homework
ResultsPlus Booster is matched to your textbooks, so it is easy to use alongside your other materials. There is plenty of support for homework activities to be used throughout your course. The benefit of this model of teaching is not only that it reduces your marking load, but also students achieve a better learning outcome as they receive support and feedback at the point at which they need it. Research suggests that quality of learning is improved by reducing the time between a student coming up against a problem and receiving feedback.
ResultsPlus Booster in the classroom
This approach to teaching is similar to the homework model; however, students work together in the classroom. The benefit of this model is that the teacher can be available to provide extra support as the students work through the exercises.
ResultsPlus Booster for independent study
ResultsPlus Booster can automatically set work for students and track their progress through the use of the Study Plan. After taking a diagnostic test, ResultsPlus Booster will create a customised study plan for the student, making exercises available based on students' results.
