Teacher Review

Many schools have introduced their students to the competitive thrills provided by Mathletics.  If your child’s school is not one of these,  you can still let them experience learning and practising maths by competing against children from all over the world.
 
The main part of Mathletics is the maths practice section.   Here, children select an aspect of maths that they have been working to understand and then answer quick-fire questions on it.  The incentive to do well is to beat other children working on the same questions at the same time.  Parents may well find that a child previously reluctant to spend time on learning maths becomes much more interested when it is for competitive reasons.
 
The question types are similar to those in other apps both in structure and coverage but the competition element is both original and well done.  Contests are readily available as the millions of users of the app provide a ready stream of challengers.  It is safe too.  The app deals with the matchmaking elements and restricts identification and communication between the players.
 
In addition to the practise section, there are also sections designed to help build knowledge.   A visual maths dictionary and other teaching sections complete Mathletics for the student.  Using these, they can clarify their understanding, revise old knowledge, and learn new concepts.
 
Parents are not forgotten about either.  The app recognises that parents want to guide and monitor their children’s education.  In their area of the Mathletics account, they can set assignments and see progress.  A very helpful guide has been made available for parents to download and learn how to use their subscription.
 
Mathletics is available on a number of subscription terms and, as with most such subscriptions, economies can be made for longer-term arrangements.   Another option is to ask your child’s school if they can take out a subscription for all of the students there.
 
It is well worth using Mathletic’s trial offer or sticking to a short subscription in the first instance.  Some children do find the competitive aspects to be a little stressful and other apps do exist for them. For those children who like to pit their skills against others, Mathletics could provide the incentive that you, as a parent, have been looking for to encourage your child to increase their efforts in mathematics.
