Originally a ten-minutes-a-day worksheet-based supplementary math facts practice, Rocket Math has enjoyed much success internationally in both elementary school classrooms and homeschool environments as a uniquely structured, sequential curriculum. Not only is Rocket Math effective, it’s fun. As the name implies, Rocket Math treats the student to a blast-off as each level “Takes Off”, “Orbits” and finally finishes with “Universe”.
Impelled by the classroom success of the Rocket Math daily worksheet program, Rocket Math - The App is R&D Instructional Solutions' natural next step, offering parents, teachers and students the new electronic version for individuated practice. Rocket Math - The App is designed to work with Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. And, it’s free to get started, enabling parent or teacher to assess Rocket Math’s benefits to the student before purchase.
"This has been a long time dream of mine--to create an app that provides proper instruction that’s needed when children are learning facts. I’m excited that we’ve developed something that really works to both motivate and teach effectively." - Dr. Don Crawford
Rocket Math - The App is not just another math facts game. Students earn their way through the levels, developing speedy accuracy to the achievement of automaticity – the real secret to math success. Motivation for students to grasp new skills and step up with confidence to the next level of math mastery is scientifically built into Rocket Math – The App through fun sights, sounds and incremental challenges.
Over the last 15 years, Rocket Math has become a welcome and important math facts learning tool in elementary classrooms both in the U.S. and overseas. Teachers and homeschooling families who have reviewed the new Rocket Math app are excited:
“The new Rocket Math app is a game changer for students, educators and parents. Learning basic facts is no longer a frustrating, mundane, forgotten task. This app is just what you’ve been waiting for. Students will enjoy the apps cool design, upgrading to the next level and tapping the answer. Teachers will enjoy the convenience, improvement in their students’ skills and excitement at mastering their facts.” ~ Kaitlin Boyer, Boyertown, PA.
“Rocket Math – The App is the first fun math app I’ve seen that really works to make you fast at basic calculations. Everything is done in small steps so your student can achieve lots of successes.” ~ Douglas Corin, Queensland, Australia.
“My students can’t wait to earn access to practice with the Rocket Math app.” ~ Shanon Sitler-Martin, M.Ed., Bethel, PA.
“I love how this app teaches math facts in a structured, systematic way. It ensures that my son masters one set of facts before progressing to the next, instead of just presenting equations randomly. The spaceship setting was very motivating for him. Overall this is a great app.” ~ Christine Carey, Milwaukee, WI
The unique Rocket Math sequence enables children to learn just two facts and their reverse at a time, practice them until memorized and then combine their new skills with those already learned in a cumulative review. Small, attainable steps ensure success. Rocket Math – The App is voice-guided, so no adult supervision is needed, while the family friendly feature keeps track of up to 3 users at once. Achievement certificates may be printed or shared via email. This one-time purchase is intended for use with Apple's iPod touch, iPhone and iPad. And, what do the students have to say?
"I like Rocket Math because you can learn math fast. You don't have to use your fingers.” ~ 7-year old, Queensland, Australia.
