Look and Listen
Our teachers have produced voice-overs with animated pictures, to make learning math easy and enjoyable. Please click the picture, to look and listen to part of a beginner lesson on addition.
Every lesson has interactive Math problems, which is a tremendously powerful feature. Having questions on the computer, rather than printed work-sheets, enables the program to be engaging and increases the enjoyment factor. It also means that the student is immediately corrected and can go on to get the next problem right – thus gaining confidence as they go.
Random Number Games
Beat-the-clock challenge games, with unlimited random numbers, help kids get up to speed with mental arithmetic. Addition, subtraction and times tables are basic Math skills, just like spelling is for English. The “warm-up” games in Math Wiz are designed to improve the student's ability to compute numbers without needing to consciously think about it.
Assistance for Beginner Readers (Hover your mouse to hear the sound)
Beginner readers can click the sound icon to hear the lessons and questions read out. The computer even talks to you, to provide the right answer when needed!
Guidance from our Tutors
Knowing that their work is being monitored by a tutor, and that a goals are being supported by someone outside of the home, encourages students to utilize the tutoring program on a regular basis. Our tutoring staff can also provide proactive guidance to students who are not working in a productive manner... perhaps they are guessing instead of studying, they may be working at a curriculum level which is too demanding, or simply idling.
It’s very easy to upload reports to our tutors. You simply click a button on the menu and all of your children’s reports will be sent to our secure web-server.
Preparation for Tests
Math Wiz has Achievement tests for each chapter and Grade level.
Struggling students can fill in their knowledge gaps and catch up on lost work - Math Wiz can be used as an intervention program for students who have fallen behind. Research has shown that weak students struggle because they do not have recall of number facts and do not understand place value (e.g. adding tens and ones).
This is a structured course, so students should progress through from top to bottom of each unit. Math needs plenty of practice, so using the program helps ensure that everything needed for school is practiced and absorbed. The program marks and corrects immediately, so your child knows exactly what to do, and how to do it.
Making sure that you are ready for Secondary School
In school, only the top students are expected to complete the primary Math course with thorough understanding. In fact, many go on to secondary school having only a partial understanding of many key concepts necessary to have a solid foundation for future learning. This inevitably means that they are unprepared to cope with the new challenges that high school will bring. This can naturally have a damaging impact on self-esteem.
AcademyOne Learning students can go on to high school with confidence and the knowledge that they have the tools to provide them with a full comprehension of the mathematical principles that that they need to know.
