We love this website! Instead of doing math in the book we opted for several days to have Ben do the Mathletics website. He thought it was so fun, he did not want to stop!
3P Learning, the home of Mathletics, is a web-based math service, providing children a chance to compete with students from around the world, or to rack up points by working through grade-specific content, which includes step-by-step animated support. There is access to additional games at Rainforest Maths, and the students get to go shopping for clothing and backgrounds for their character with the credits they earn from many of the above activities. There are also games that reinforce math concepts. In other words, the students have a variety of ways to interact with math.
I really liked that my child is able to do certain math problems in areas that they may need help in. For example if Ben needed more practice in fractions there is a whole section all about fractions. The kids can earn points for certificates. They can also compete in points earned with kids all around the world.
Mathletics is an internet subscription based product, with a price of $59 per student per year. If you know the Human Calculator’s favorite number (hint: it’s ‘9’!) and you enter that when asked, you can purchase a single child subscription for $49.95 for a year at their website.
