Mathletics

Mathletics at Mount Barker South Primary School

Thank you to those parents who have had the opportunity to use and see their children using the Mathletics program at home and for the very positive response to the introduction of this program. The students have certainly really enjoyed using the program at school with a number of outstanding individual and class results already being obtained. Well done everyone we are really pleased to see and hear that the children are thoroughly enjoying utilising Mathletics as another means of improving their understanding of Numeracy skills.

The Mathletics Program

Mathletics is a web-based learning program, which integrates home and school learning via the internet. Mathletics covers Prep- Year 12 Australian Maths Curriculum and is currently used in over 4000 Australian schools, with more than 800,000 students accessing the Mathletics website every day.

The benefits of Mathletics include:

Working at home

Children have 24 hour access to Mathletics through the use of a username and password. To gain the greatest understanding how Mathletics can benefit your child, we encourage parents to spend time looking at the program with their child. Please see the Guides link on the Mathletics website at the bottom of their home page.

The absolute golden rule of Mathletics is to do each activity 3 times! Why? Practice=Improvement!

  1. Use the incorrect answer to try and figure out the correct answer
  2. Go to the Support? it will teach you with different examples of the concept
  3. If you still don’t understand the concept write the activity topic in your book and ask the teacher

PLEASE NOTE - Students gain points by beating their personal best therefore it is very important for you or other family members NOT to use your child’s password as your child will then be disadvantaged, also teachers will see a reflection of your work and not your child’s - this makes it difficult for the teacher to assist your child in maths
