Mathletics is being used by many schools to help establish a stronger home/school link – allowing parents to take an active role in supporting their children’s maths and numeracy learning at home.
Parents can register for their own account where they can track their child’s progress in maths and sign up for weekly email updates.
What teachers are saying about Mathletics and parental engagement…
“The feedback from parents has been very positive as it enables them to see teaching methods as used in the classroom. In addition, our Mathletics coordinator celebrates pupils’ success through the use of the Mathletics Wall of Achievement, posting photographs and writing regular updates for the school newsletter. Mathletics now forms an integral part of the school’s numeracy improvement strategy. So far, the results are encouraging and the response from the pupils and parents even more so.”
St Kentigern’s Academy
“We’ve found that lots of parents absolutely love Mathletics. They’ve signed up to the parent registration whereby they get a weekly email about their child’s strengths and weaknesses, what they’ve done that week and how much they’ve used it.
If a child is struggling with their maths at home and parents don’t know how to solve the problem, they can use the help button so they can learn from that themselves and talk through it with their child.”
Holy Family Catholic Primary
“All the parents I’ve spoken to love Mathletics. They like the fact that their children are excited about doing maths and excited about doing their homework. It’s something parents can sit down and do with their children which they seem to enjoy.
They love the fact there is this option and if it’s a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, it’s pouring with rain and they can’t get their children to sit down in front of a maths book, the option of using a computer is more often than not a positive one.
It takes the pressure off teachers by not always having to provide parents with more and more information. There’s so much on Mathletics and it’s so easy to access for both pupils and parents.”
Christ The Saviour CoE Primary
“Parents have commented that Mathletics helps them to understand what their child is expected to know in Maths each year. Also it has proved to be a fun way to work with and support their child in the subject.”
