After completing adaptive and lesson-aligned fluency and Guided Practice, students demonstrate understanding in the Tower of Power. Students need to answer all of the questions correctly to complete the Tower of Power and unlock the next Independent Digital Lesson. Problems in the Tower of Power are digitally translated from the Printed Problem Set.
As students work through the Tower of Power, they experience an embedded, daily diagnostic that assesses their understanding and automatically launches a Boost, with support and scaffolding from prior grades or units, the moment that they need it. This approach helps students to work through productive struggle and continue forward in their learning.
If students make a mistake in a Tower of Power problem, the Boost breaks down the question into smaller steps with more supportive manipulatives to allow students to understand and correct their mistakes. Students then have a chance to demonstrate their learning with a new problem. If students continue to struggle in the Tower of Power after multiple remediation paths, their teacher receives an alert in the Tower Alerts Report, enabling them to provide differentiated support for that student.
