This year a new online, interactive mathematics resource has been introduced at Haileybury Astana. Over 3 million students in 9,000 schools around the world use this tool to support their mathematics learning. Teachers set tasks in class and for homework via the website and since it was introduced, pupils have enjoyed using the resource to improve their Numeracy skills. At Haileybury Astana, pupils from Year 1 to Year 7 each receive an individual login, which means they can access the resource not only at school but also at home, or through the new mobile application.
There is not only a student section, but also teacher and parents section so pupils’ progress can be viewed easily and their work adapted accordingly. This gives them the opportunity to practise their mathematical skills and to consolidate new concepts learnt in class.
Pupils also get the chance to take part in “Live Mathletics”, and compete online against other children, from all over the world. Children collect points from everything they do on the site and this is collated on a High Score Leaderboard. There have already been a number of outstanding individual and class results, which has meant a number of pupils and classes are already featured on the board.
Mathletics motivates pupils and keeps them engaged in their learning of Mathematics.
“98% of students show improvement after just three activities.” (Mathletics website)
