The most prominent features of the Istation Math system as of 2015 are its interactive game-based mission activities for students, digital support tools for teachers and lesson content based on research to meet state instruction standards. The system offers teachers practical reports that show a student's level of learning.
A teacher uses the Istation assessment tool to evaluate each student. The assessment outcome determines where in the program each student should begin. As a student progresses through each mission, the program responsively changes to raise the student's engagement level. The program targets concepts, such as place value and fractions; the teacher receives visual aids, such as place value mats and fraction bars, to enhance student learning.
