HMH Fuse: Algebra 2, Common Core Edition App Description

WHAT HMH Fuse Algebra 2 Common Core Edition gives every student a personalized learning experience using video tutorials, MathMotion step-by-step examples, homework help, quizzes, tips, hints, and many other integrated features to teach, review, and assess all concepts. Other features include the ability for students to show their scratch pad work for individual questions on the assessments, student response system (clickers), and Graph It! examples permits students to explore the example conceptually. Students will benefit from an all-in-one app with built-in tools including Algebra Tiles, Linear Explorer, Quadratic Explorer, a graphing calculator, text and audio note-taking, scratchpad, and a student response system for instant learner feedback. For institutional users, teachers can access all assessment results in an on-line Teacher Resource Center and prescribe remediation or intervention as needed. WHY Following a year-long FUSE pilot at Amelia Earhart School in Riverside California, the results are in. Comparing student performance, over 78% of students using HMH Fuse scored Proficient or Advanced on the state test, compared to only 59% of their fellow students at Earhart – a difference of 19% in favor of students using the HMH Fuse app. HOW Try a Sample: Download and review one free chapter of content with all features and tools available for the user to review. Individual Purchase: For just $19.99, purchase individual access to all of the FUSE Algebra 2 Common Core Edition content using your iTunes account. This does not include the Teacher Resource Center. Institutional Purchase: Institutions may also purchase FUSE and provide teachers with the ability to obtain access to all of the FUSE Algebra 2 content and allows teachers to access all assessment results in an on-line Teacher Resource Center and prescribe intervention or remediation as needed. For more information about institutional purchases please contact HMH Customer Service (888) 327-2906 or your HMH sales representative. ****************************************************************************************************** Please note: Due to many rich-media features in this app including 400 video tutorials, a graphing calculator and a student response system, the file size is much larger than a typical app and will take some time to download and install this complete curriculum. Media Reviews: “In short, Algebra just got more 21st century kid friendly.” -Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle. September 11, 2010 “HMH Fuse multiple methods approach was quite helpful in having students understand concepts quicker than just using going through the problem on the board at the front of the class.” -David Winograd. TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog. May 5, 2011 “Having immediate feedback on sample problems and the ability to access online resources … offers great value.” -Katie Ash, Education Week. February 4, 2011 “The app has more than 400 video tutorials and step-by-step animations that walk them through equations and problems, and students are able to "write" on the iPad with their fingers.” -Jason Koebler, U.S. News and World Report. April 15, 2011 “Want to improve student academic performance? There's an app for that. Teachers say students are more interested in learning because it's happening where they want to be–on the cutting edge of technology.” -Marc Benjamin, The Fresno Bee. May 7, 2011

    If your teacher forces you to download this app, I feel sorry for you. The app does not have a glossary and its index does not show the definitions, the layout is nonsensical, and it costs $29.00 and a lot of memory to download individual chapters. Congratulations Houghton McMuffin-face. You have created a garbage app which exploits high-school students out of their money and their time. Well done.

    This is the best game I ever had. It's better than a treasure chest full of Babies! The best part is the background music.

    Please make it so when you're iPad is in landscape mode it fills up the screen! Also when you zoom in it gets blurry! It's very frustrating! I have to use this book for school and it gets annoying!

  • Great, but complicated

    This is a great educational app, especially with the interactive examples and it incorporates the Common Core. They should create two apps though. As an educator we use Volume Vouchers to purchase apps for our school. And because to purchase the full app it is an upgrade, we are unable to purchase it. So creating a free version as a sample, and then a 2nd app for the full version, we would be able to purchase it.
  • extra interactive tools VERY slow

    I downloaded the free version (for now), and while I was impressed by the attractive layout and large number of student exercises from which to choose, I noted several significant problems: 1) It takes up an *enormous* amount of room--far more than do competitor versions of the same product. Granted, it supposedly has plenty of videos, etc., but woe to those with only 16GB of RAM, and who'd like multiple other textbooks on the same iPad! 2) The "explorers" (Linear Explorer, Quadratic Explorer, etc.), when set in "graph" mode (as opposed to "table" mode), are so slow as to be unworkable; when trying to move the slider bars (for each variable), there's a 5-30 second lag time (on my 16GB iPad 2), which is so jumpy that no one could possibly choose a specific number without much trial and error (with 5-30 second lags between each); I don't see any way that students would sit still for it. 3) Navigation in the "sample" version is very difficult; it doesn't highlight the pages which you can access, and it merely gives an error if you happen to be on one of the hundreds of pages which are not yet accessible (without the fee). 4) Having some indicator of how much the "in-app purchases" will truly cost (i.e. not $19.99, as the app seems to indicate at first) would be a big help.
