Mathletics at Rhodes Avenue A Guide for Parents

Mathletics at Rhodes Avenue A Guide for Parents Rhodes Avenue and Mathletics Mathletics is designed to provide students with a captivating and safe learning experience. As part of Rhodes Avenues Tier Three homelearning, students are set curriculum activities by their teachers which are backed up by interactive tutorials and audio support. Mathletics also engages students through games and apps in the Play area to target maths fluency, including giving them opportunities to compete against children across the world. Students are rewarded frequently through avatar credits for improvement

and points for correct answers which can earn certificates. 1. Getting started a) On the Mathletics homepage (www.mathletics.com), click sign in here. a) Enter the username and password to sign in. Your childs log in cards will be given out by your teacher this week. 2. Activities assigned by the teacher

Your class teacher will assign one or two activities a week. These must be completed before your child has access to the rest of Mathletics. These activities will stem from the learning your child has been doing in class that week. If they would like to play the games or edit their avatar, they will need to complete these activities before doing so. As soon as they log in, they will be

shown this screen: Activities assigned by the teacher The activity that has been set will be linked to the learning in your childs Mathematics lesson from the previous week. However, if they are unsure of

how to answer a question, they can click on the i symbol on the top right hand corner of the webpage. Your child will be then given a clear strategy to complete the questions successfully.

Activities assigned by the teacher Once your child has completed the activity, they will be shown which questions they got correct with an opportunity to go back and correct any questions that were wrong they will get instant feedback. These results will also be available for their class teacher to see. If your child has struggled with a particular activity, their class teacher can discuss it with them in school to ensure they have understood that particular learning objective. 3. Live Mathletics Once your child has completed the activity by their teacher, they are then able to

play games on Mathletics, including Live Mathletics. To do this, all they need to do is press the Play button on the top of their screen. Live Mathletics Your child can choose if they would like to play against players from around the world, in their school, their class or against the computer. Students are matched on their ability and skill level to ensure everyone gets a fair game, every time. In Live Mathletics, one point is awarded for every correct answer given. Extra points are available for choosing a game at your Bonus Level (indicated by a gold star next to the level number). This is to encourage your child to challenge

themselves. If your child answers 3 questions wrong, the game finishes. This is to encourage pupils to take their time and make sure that their answers are accurate, rather than rushing or guessing. Live Mathletics The Live Gaming area within Mathletics (like all parts of the Mathletics resource)

is completely safe and secure. While students are matched with others from elsewhere in the world, there is no direct communication and all student details are anonymous. 4. Rainforest Maths Activities For additional games and activities, your child can go to

Rainforest Maths by clicking on the play button at the top of their page and then scrolling down to the bottom of the page. Here, they can select the year they are in and then an activity they would like to practise e.g. 3D shapes. 5. Results In My Progress, your child is given all the tools they need to check the progress of their own learning. A visual representation of their results is displayed clearly with a familiar traffic

light system. Red activities indicate areas where students need further support, yellow shows that a student is grasping a concept or skill and green areas indicate they have achieved a high level of understanding. 6. Rewards Mathletics uses a variety of mechanisms to encourage and reward students to strive for great performance: Points are awarded to students as they successfully complete Live Mathletics and Curriculum Content within Mathletics. The points contribute to their earning

of certificates and a place in the Hall of Fame. Certificates are shown on their page when a student earns 1000 points or more within one week. Students initially earn a Bronze Certificate, then a Silver Certificate once five Bronzes have been earned. With four Silver Certificates, a student then receives the much-coveted Gold Certificate, demonstrating their long-term commitment and developing ability. Gold certificates will be given out to the children in assembly. Rewards

Credits are earned by participating in Live Mathletics and the Curriculum Content. These credits allow students to purchase items for their online avatar. This is a fun and engaging way for students to personalise their experience, encouraging a greater investment in their efforts and results. The Top Students Hall of Fame shows the top 100 students in the world. This is a daily leaderboard and counts only points earned by students during the current 24hr period (the countdown to the next daily reset is shown at the top of the Hall of Fame). The Top Classes Hall of Fame shows the top 50 classes in the world. This is a weekly leaderboard (running Sunday-Sunday) and counts the average points earned by all students in a class this week.

Rhodes Avenue and Online Safety As a school, we encourage the use of technology as an important part of our pupils development, using the internet safely to explore and learn. Consequently, e-safety is taught to the children throughout the school as part of the National Curriculum for Computing and within the PSHE & Curriculum. Mathletics is purely a teaching and learning tool. There is no way for children to communicate and no social networking facility within the program. The Live Maths area within Mathletics, (like all parts of the resource) is both completely safe and secure. While students are matched with others from

elsewhere in the world, there is no direct communication and all student details are anonymous. All students are given a unique username and password that will give them access to the program and clearly we encourage all children not to share these details. Rhodes Avenue and Online Safety You can easily ensure that your child only has access to their home learning when on your tablet or device at home: If you use a Windows computer, you will be able to set your child their own account so that you can restrict the websites that they go on as well as limiting

their screen time. (Settings Accounts Add a family member Add a child Manage family settings online) Likewise, if you are using an iPhone, iPod or iPod touch, you are able to restrict certain apps and features so that you can be confident your child can only access appropriate content whilst completing their homework.
