Improve Your Student's Math Skills With Mathletics
What Is Mathletics?
Mathletics is an online mathematics resource that builds students' skills and confidence through games and exercises that reinforce mathematical concepts. The genius of the Mathletics system is that parents and teachers are able to customize the content units that students see, allowing them to to focus on those areas that are problematic without wasting time covering well-understood topics.
The program comes fully aligned to common core standards, but also includes hundreds of other curriculums from around the world. Is one approach to fractions not working? Try a different approach? Is your student ahead of the curve and needs a challenge? Try taking the next step.
Beyond the ability to customize units, the program itself employs a complex algorithm that constantly strives to find the perfect question. As students successfully complete questions, Mathletics adjusts and ups the difficulty. Get too many wrong and the student will start to see easier questions. The idea is to find the exact level of difficulty that the student needs to learn from their mistakes without leaving them so lost that they cannot locate the source of their confusion.
