CSM is a free, powerful adaptive learning system that builds and deepens core math and literacy skills, and ties these skills to real-world problem-solving. More importantly, CSM is the only learning system that also builds better learners with effective learning strategies and powerful academic traits and habits -- persistence, carefulness, self-reliance, confidence and intrinsic motivation. Even many "good" students are just OK learners, and CSM helps all students with these daily-used, life-long skills needed to graduate from college.
CSM's intelligent technology:
integrates math, literacy, and problem-solving in real-world contexts as found in college and work directs students in an optimal path through the curriculum using problem-by-problem formative assessment maintains each student at the appropriate level -- from deep-remedial to college-level work in a single course builds often overlooked traits vital to academic success, like persistence, confidence, self-reliance and motivation enhances independent learning habits with an emphasis on learning through reading provides data to instructors on students' engagement and attitudes, learning decisions, and skills mastery

Hardware/Operating system: CSM supports Windows and Mac OS's, as well as iPads and Android tablets (please contact us for information on specific devices and operating systems). CSM can usually run on older systems with slower CPUs and limited memory.
The minimum screen size is 800x600 for students. In general, however, screens with more pixels in the vertical dimension are better for students, since they can see more of the instruction at one time. For optimal viewing of the CSM Teacher Toolkit, Teachers should preferably have screens with a minimum of 1024 pixels in the horizontal dimension.
Software: The only software required by CSM is an Internet browser -- there is no software downloaded onto the host computer. CSM currently supports Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari (though older versions of these browsers may not be supported), as well as internal browsers on a number of tablets (e.g. many iPad and Android tablets). If you login as a student, CSM will check the browser and usually inform you if the browser is not supported.
Internet bandwidth: CSM has low requirements for Internet bandwidth -- for example, it does not have streaming video -- and usually won't strain school networks.
