Posted by at 1:47 pm on September 9, 2010

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt  today announced a year-long pilot of the first-ever full-curriculum Algebra app for the Apple iPad. The pilot also represents the launch of HMH Fuse, a new mode of curriculum delivery where interactive platforms and mobile devices bring learning to life for students by moving beyond the one-way experience of a print or digital textbook. The HMH Fuse:  Holt McDougal Algebra 1 app will be the most sophisticated use of the iPad’s interactive technology in K-“12 learning to date.

Through the revolutionary iPad environment, students will receive feedback on practice questions, write and save notes, receive guided instruction, access video lessons and more with the touch of a finger. The app’s multi-dimensional functionality combines instruction, ongoing support and intervention, allowing teachers and students to customize learning and meet individual needs.

California Secretary of Education Bonnie Reiss, Long Beach Unified School District Superintendent Christopher Steinhauser, HMH Executive Vice President of Content Development and Publishing Operations Bethlam Forsa and  Holt McDougal Algebra 1 author and Williams College Mathematics Professor Edward Burger, Ph.D. joined together today at Washington Middle School in Long Beach to launch the pilot and provide students with a demonstration of HMH Fuse’s interactive technology.

“As the digital age reaches our classrooms it will transform education, allowing for teaching our students in ways not before imagined, and California is poised to lead the way,” said Secretary of Education Reiss. “This pilot project represents an important step toward embracing a more interactive learning environment that will help our fantastic teachers and school leaders meet the changing needs of California’s students in the 21st-century economy.”

In total, HMH is piloting 400 iPads across Washington Middle School and Hudson K-“8 in Long Beach Unified; Kings Canyon Middle School and Sequoia Middle School in Fresno Unified; Amelia Earhart Middle School in Riverside Unified and Presidio Middle School in San Francisco Unified School District.
