Differentiating on prac…

My class got to spend 40 minutes of class time each week in the computer lab.  This time was usually used for participation in the Mathletics program.  A program which the school has purchased and encourages teachers to use.  Since its implementation, results in maths across the school have increased.  The school prides itself on the high levels of both numeracy skills and literacy skills its students have.  These results are reflected in their data.

The thing I like about the mathletics program is that each student can have a differentiated program set up for them by the teacher.  This allows them to have success in mathematics, but also allows for growth as they succeed.  While the teachers agree that initially, the program does take a little effort to setup, the results make that effort worthwhile.
