You have to know by now how passionate I am about education and the importance of keeping up with educational activities over the summer. I’ve written about a few different programs.
Research shows students lose two to three months of grade level math equivalency over the summer, which impacts their readiness for the next school year. TenMarks, which is an Amazon company and recipient of the 2015 CODiE Award for Best Math Instructional Solution, is working hard to keep students engaged over the summer to reverse learning loss in math before heading back to school.
I don’t want my kids to lose anything they learned last year so we’re doing about 20 minutes a day of reading and math and piano. For math I’m using this program TenMarks. TenMarks is free from now until August 31, 2015. That means it’s free all summer, visit http://summer.tenmarks.com to sign up. My kids have using it for about a week now and I’m happy with their results. They use it on their computers but your kids can use The TenMarks Math for Students app that is available for tablets on iOS, Android or Fire OS..
The TenMarks Summer Math Program is a national program that provides students with a personalized course tuned to their individual learning needs, based on a summative end-of-year assessment. Zoe and Miles both took the assessment and then they jumped right into the activities. With the Program, I am able to encourage Miles and Zoe to use screen time in a productive way over the summer. Whether at home or on-the-go we are able to get some math work done and I won’t have to worry that they are going to forget any of those math skills. Plus if they need extra help there are videos they can watch to explain the process behind the question.
Data from 2014 showed that the TenMarks Summer Math Program helped reverse summer learning loss for over 69% of participating students—in just 8 weeks, with one-hour of use per week, students tested at the beginning of the program and then again at the end of the program averaged 11% increase in scores.
The TenMarks Summer Math Program is designed for students completing grade 1 through Geometry and Algebra 2, helping build their math foundation and skills over the summer break at their own pace and time, and benefitting teachers who typically spend the first few weeks of a school year re-introducing the previous years’ teachings. The program starts with a diagnostic assessment it uses to automatically create a personalized summer curriculum, which reviews concepts from the previous year, and introduces concepts for the year ahead. As students work through their curriculum, they use embedded hints and video lessons to refresh what they know while learning new material. The program adapts with targeted interventions for real-time learning assistance.
TenMarks believes that students learn best when they are individually engaged, nurtured, and motivated. Its programs are designed for the depth and rigor of the new math standards and every TenMarks lesson helps students build a strong conceptual foundation, improve problem-solving skills, and gain math confidence. TenMarks math programs have been used by millions of students across over 55,000 schools and over 12,000 districts.
