StudyForge

StudyForge Logo from website

StudyForge is an online resource designed to supplement your student’s math program through interactive, set-by-set, progressive lessons which include animated interactive lessons, note packages, practice questions, solution videos, and the “searchable StudyForge Video Database”. It can be used as an fully aligned BC eText, or simply as a secondary study tool. Plus access all the curriculum on your iPad or Android Tablet through the StudyForge iOS and Android app!

Every video lesson has fill-in-the-blank style notes for you to print off and fill in as you watch the videos. You don’t have to figure out what is important and what is not. Simply fill in the blanks.   Students can also print off the note package pages that go along with the videos.

This is an example of the chapter introduction that is being created for StudyForge video animated textbooks.

At StudyForge, we don’t restrict users to just one course. Every student has access to all available math or science videos, all the time. While the content is organized in your default course, you are free to navigate to other courses. Use our powerful search tools to find that pesky topic from last year that needs just a bit more practice. Finish your course early? Start your next course on your existing licence.

Ready for September 2017, there will be Math 5 and 6 courses available.  These can be accessed through StudyForge just like textbooks, with no “graded” or “summative” assignments, tests or teacher support.  (HCOS teachers cannot access students’ work, as it is not saved in the site.) Instead, there are self-marked activities and practice questions.  We recommend that students use BC ExamBank, which is free to HCOS enrolled students, for tests to assess their work in StudyForge.  

Alternatively, students may access all StudyForge courses as online courses, which will allow them to have assignments, tests and direct teacher support.  You will find these on your student’s “Course List” menu in Encom.

Cost: Students enrolled in HCOS may use their curriculum budget toward the subscription fee of $30/student/year; less than the cost of one hour with a math tutor!  To create an account for StudyForge, which uses it like a textbook (i.e. no tests or teacher support) go to:  http://lms.studyforge.net/login/signup.php?theme=afterburner  and continue until completed through the MachForm.

Note:  You need to be registered in an individualized Math course for grade 10-12 students to receive funding to use for the StudyForge  curriculum. If you would like to take an online course that uses this same curriculum, and have direct teacher support, please register for the online course through Encom.
