IBM releases K-5 free online tool for math teachers

The IBM Foundation has teamed up with education leaders, providers of high quality teaching content, and math teachers to develop a free online tool called Teacher Advisor With Watson. The new tool uses IBM’s Watson technology that has been trained by math experts to provide teachers with targeted recommendations for math concepts, skills and techniques. With more than 1,000 high quality lesson plans, proven teaching strategies, and videos, the tool is designed to help teachers make more informed decisions about the best approaches for teaching their students. More than 1,000 teachers across dozens of states have piloted it. 

On Wednesday, September 13th, Teacher Advisor 1.0 will be available for free to all elementary math teachers in the United States. The development team is working hard to ensure that by then, Teacher Advisor will cover math resources from kindergarten through fifth grade.
