Math Challenge: How Can Students Stay on Top of Their Math Game During the Summer?

Share Article

To many students, summer means playing outdoors, freedom from schedules and most importantly, no homework. No wonder it's a chore for parents to get kids excited about a private lesson or a trip to the tutoring center. While summer math workbooks are great on the go, MathScore offers an alternative that kids actually like using and, best of all, it adapts to each student's learning needs.

To many students, summer means playing outdoors, freedom from schedules and most importantly, no homework. No wonder it's a chore for parents to get kids excited about a private lesson or a trip to the tutoring center. While summer math workbooks are great on the go, MathScore offers an alternative that kids actually like using and, best of all, it adapts to each student's learning needs.

MathScore's competitive gaming atmosphere challenges students to beat their own best score. This Internet-based math environment adapts to the skill level of the student, increasing the difficulty level rapidly for high-performing students. For remedial students, the patent-pending algorithm moves forward more slowly to keep the student from getting frustrated. In this way, every student feels successful and is challenged to keep working.

Proven effective at increasing math proficiency, MathScore delivers a high volume of randomly generated math problems and step-by-step solutions to a student in a short period of time. In just one 45- to 60-minute session, students can complete a month's worth of timed tests. Multiply that by a 10-week summer vacation and not only will students skip the dip in proficiency that often occurs over the summer, but they'll move their math proficiency beyond where they were at the end of the previous year.

MathScore even offers a free alternative to summer workbooks that is just as portable. The free Math Worksheet Generator randomly generates printable worksheets that can be customized simply by answering a few questions. Parents can select the number of problems that will appear on a worksheet, the high and low factors to be used, and whether the problems should be limited to a specific subset of numbers, such as 2s and 5s paired with random numbers 1 through 9.

Most students with MathScore accounts accessed through their school web site can continue their math practice from home throughout the summer, though parents should check with their school administrator to make sure.

For students not yet using MathScore at school, parents can purchase a home subscription beginning later this spring.
