Mathletics

Within the next few weeks your child will either be introduced to, or reminded of Mathletics, an internationally renowned educational website. We have used this program for the last two years in the Elementary School with great success. Many parents and students already understand what a fantastic educational tool this is.

Mathletics is a web-based learning program which has the potential to integrate home and school learning via the internet. The Mathletics syllabus used by NIST allows students to work at different levels and is designed for students of different abilities from Year Three to Year Six.

Your child will have 24 hour access to Mathletics by using a unique and unchangeable username and password that will be supplied by the school within the next two weeks. We recommend that you encourage your child to record this information in a safe and easily accessible place.

Some of the Benefits of Mathletics are:

  • Students enjoy using Mathletics and are engaged and motivated to learn.
  • Students instantly know if they are on the right track and can work through the curriculum at their own pace.
  • Animated support guides students through concepts at their own pace which is like having a personal tutor 24 hours a day.
  • Live Mathletics fosters a stimulating and exciting online learning community worldwide.
  • Mathletics is adaptive which means that it responds to the individual student’s strengths and weaknesses.

We’d like you to be mindful of the fact that Mathletics is just one part of the multifaceted mathematics program offered at NIST.  Some students will use the program at school and others may be required to use the program as part of their homework programme.

If you would like to know more about the programme, ask your child to show it to you. However, be aware that students may take some time to develop the skills required to independently use the program at home.

Yours Sincerely,

The Teachers of Years Three to Six

    Great to see such a detailed description of Matheletics on this blog.

    I am the Regional Manager for Asia for Mathletics and I hope to visit NIST in the next month or so and work with staff and students to ensure that all questions are answered.

    I am looking forward to also seeing NIST students on the World Leaderboard 🙂

    Keep up the good work Mr Kirkwood!!

    Kind regards
