Houston-based Accelerate Learning, the developer of the STEMscopes suite of K12 STEM curriculum products, has acquired Study Edge, which offers maths curriculum and tutoring.
Gainesville, Florida-headquartered Study Edge markets several maths-focused products, including Math Nation which offers resources for 6th to 8th in maths, algebra and geometry, providing a video platform that lets students choose between different tutors, each with individual teaching styles and pace to match students’ preferences.
The digital and print resources, which include content videos, digital practice problems, and teacher-specific supports, are widely used in Florida as well as in other US schools and districts.
Philip Galati, president and chief executive of Accelerate Learning, said: “With the addition of Study Edge, we will now offer a complete K12 curriculum for math, but what’s more important is what our combined solutions can do for students and teachers. Like STEMscopes, Math Nation has a proven track record of improving students’ pass rates on state assessments and positively impacting diverse student populations. We look forward to seeing what schools can achieve in the months and years ahead with our expanded curriculum and capabilities.”
Ethan Fieldman, founder and president of Study Edge, added: “The successes of students, teachers, families, and school districts are what motivate us at Study Edge. We are excited to join forces with a STEM leader like Accelerate Learning to expand our capabilities to provide the education every student deserves. We look forward to enhancing our customers’ experience with the entire suite of STEMscopes offerings to help them advance STEM teaching and learning while inspiring and preparing students for their futures.”
