Math Matters, too! (or maybe it's 2?!?)
Math is a fundamental learning skill used throughout life. A strong foundation for mathematic success begins in elementary school. To help our students achieve, we encourage their active participation in the First In Math program.
First in Math is an online program designed to support and build students’ math skills. First in Math
“…complements any curriculum, in any learning environment. Studies show that use of the program for minutes a day—in the classroom or at home—can increase math success. The more children use it, the more their skills improve.
There is no software to install, games play on a PC or Mac, and new modules and updates are automatically available. The site offers broad content, with an open-ended, self-pacing design that is great for differentiated instruction.
Implementation is scalable; employ First In Math in one grade or an entire district with equal ease, and no extra load on teachers.
The program includes a “competition” component, which offers sustained, positive motivation. As students play, they earn award “stickers” that accrue to their personal and classroom score.” (From First In Math Overview)
Please encourage your child to play First in Math every day!!
