A - Z Parent Guide
Mathletics switches kids onto maths – it’s the next generation in learning helping students enjoy maths and achieve outstanding results. It’s fun, supportive and effective for students of all ages and abilities, helping students achieve more.
BNPS subscribes to Mathletics on behalf of your child and teaching staff receive regular Professional Development (PD) to keep abreast of new additions and initiatives within the Mathletics program. The Mathletics website can be accessed at: www.mathletics.com.au – a Username and Password will be issued to your child by the class teacher.
To support your child at home you can REGISTER to receive weekly reports about your child’s progress. Please make sure your child logs on often and either completes tasks set by their teacher or, alternatively, that they complete whichever task they feel would be most beneficial for them. It should only take around 30-40 minutes per week for most children to earn a certificate (at least 1000 participation points in one week).
Don’t forget to ask your child about THE RULES. Hopefully THE RULES will help ensure that your child remains motivated and supported to earn those certificates.
- Attempt each task three times
- Aim for at least 85% (mastery)
- Use the large question mark often
- If you do steps 1-3 there is a 95% likelihood of achieving mastery
Each week we will celebrate all of the students who achieve 1000 Participation Points or more and hand out certificates. Children who achieve at least 5000 points in a week will gain the chance of holding on to a special Mathletics trophy for the week. They will also be highlighted on Compass and in our school newsletter.
