We had a tremendous amount of input from parents and educators to develop something which could help kids maintain their Math skills over the summer and out of this was born the Splash Math Summer Skills program. - Arpit Jain, VP (Product Marketing)
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
StudyPad, Inc., a leading ed-tech company with 10 of the Top 200 apps in Apple’s Educational Apps category, today announced the launch of the Splash Math™ Summer Skills program, an 8-week program that has been purpose-built for grades 1-5 students to maintain their Math skills between grades. Regularly priced at $15.99, Splash Math Summer Skills is available to families who register now at https://www.splashmath.com/summer-math-program/parent for only $9.99.
Research shows that students lose an average of 2.6 months of Math comprehension and computational ability over the summer holidays. Additionally, teachers have to “re-teach” up to 3 months of the previous grade's Math lessons at the beginning of the next class year. Parents and educators are constantly looking for ways to help counter the effects of this infamous "Summer Slide", and now StudyPad has the solution.
The Splash Math Summer Skills program runs for 8 weeks during the summer break and includes the following:
- A personalized, grade-specific diagnostic test to help pinpoint success areas and trouble spots for each registered student to address over the summer;
- A Customized 8-week learning program with skills from the grade the student has just completed as well as lessons for the grade the student is entering;
- Interactive games which encourage kids to practice Math (just two 30-minute sessions per week on Splash Math will help stem the Summer Slide); and
- A Certificate of Completion that can be shared with the student’s new teacher in the Fall.
“With 5 million students now using Splash Math on computers and tablets at home, in the classroom and on the go, students, parents and teachers alike have embraced these interactive lessons as the way to practice and polish Math skills for today’s learners,“ said Arpit Jain, VP of Product Marketing for StudyPad. “We had a tremendous amount of input from parents and educators to develop something which could help kids maintain their Math skills over the summer and prepare for the next grade level and out of this was born the Splash Math Summer Skills program.”
The Splash Math Summer Skills program provides kids with fun, interactive math practice problem sets which are highly adaptive and tailored to a student’s skill and grade level—whether for regular daily practice, to “catch up” to grade level, or to work on math problems that challenge students beyond their grade level. Splash Math is based on the U.S. Common Core curriculum that provides a consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know how to help them.
The Splash Math Summer Skills program is available immediately on the Web at https://www.splashmath.com/summer-math-program/parent for only $9.99.
