“Families today realize the importance of a good math foundation, and that children have to practice to maintain and improve their skills - just like baseball or soccer."

TenMarks Education today releases 19 engaging online math programs for grades 3-10 that help students avoid the “summer slide,” a learning loss phenomenon in which every student loses 2 months of math learning every summer. For over 100 years researchers have documented this trend, and this summer TenMarks personalized interactive programs will finally allow students to conveniently review and learn math concepts, and beat the heat of the summer slide.
TenMarks wide variety of online math programs meet the learning needs of every student because they are personalized and mapped to state standards. Interactive worksheets, on-demand hints, interesting video instruction and real time results engage today’s digital kids who prefer to work online. TenMarks award winning online programs are effective, convenient and flexible so students can work at their own pace.
Dr. Chris Moynihan, a lifetime educator states, “Educators and parents have a responsibility to equip students with 21st century skills; chief amongst these skills are the abilities to think critically, to analyze information efficiently, and to solve problems creatively and flexibly -- all of which are supported by being a strong mathematical thinker. TenMarks serves our children well by making mathematical understanding more accessible and does so in ways that really work for children. TenMarks programs are geared differently for every student, taking into account what they know and then helping each to move forward at his/her own pace.”
TenMarks summer math programs were developed with the help of experienced math teachers, and based on data from thousands of students across the country. The “Step Up” programs help maintain the skills the students learned over the school year, and introduce them to what’s coming next year so that they are prepared and confident. “Foundation” programs enable students to refresh core concepts in Algebra, Geometry, Fractions, Math Facts, and more. Students can also take interactive assessments or preview videos; and results are emailed to parents who have dashboard control, helping them stay involved.
TenMarks summer programs run for 3 months and cost $39 per student for unlimited use. The program can be paused for vacation. More information is available at tenmarks.com.
Joanne S., a parent of a 7th grader who used TenMarks last summer said, “My daughter is one who 'forgets' over the summer, and TenMarks was a great program to keep that from happening. In general math last year, she received all B's. At mid-quarter, her average is currently an A. I credit your program for helping her 'maintain' over the summer. As a former teacher, TenMarks was a great combination of allowing children to drill on what they need to know, and instruction/explanation if needed.”
TenMarks founders Andrew Joseph and Rohit Agarwal add, “Families today realize the importance of a good math foundation, and that children have to practice to maintain and improve their skills - just like baseball or soccer. Digital kids today like using TenMarks because it allows them to proceed at their own pace, and provide help right when they need it. When children understand something, when the light bulb goes off, when they really get it, success is theirs. We’re excited that our unique approach to math learning is helping students everywhere.”
TenMarks structured online programs of practice, assessment and instruction have been found to motivate, instill confidence, and improve student achievement. Online learning at TenMarks is a convenient, effective and affordable way to engage students in summer learning and help families avoid the summer slide.
