## Summer School Math Information

Summer is the perfect time to help students who have fallen below grade level in mathematics. It's also a good time for other students to get ahead. Either way, MathScore supports differentiated instruction for Kindergarten through Algebra I, and it places a strong emphasis on basic skills.

Statistically, our research suggests that less than 1 in 5 incoming fifth graders have properly mastered their multiplication math facts. In fact, less 25% of them have even mastered their addition math facts! This weakness is quite likely the source of the problem with today's Algebra I students. Using MathScore, you can fix this problem in as little as one summer.

### Suggestions for Using MathScore During the Summer

If you can get your students Internet access for a 1 hour block per week, or 2 separate 45 minute blocks (not 30 minutes1) per week, we predict that you can tremendously improve basic skills competence in one summer. In our original pilot program, we took a 5th grade classroom from 6 out of 34 who could do their multiplication math facts to 30 out of 34 in only 3 months, and they used MathScore only once per week for 1 hour at a time. That's 30 out of 34 students who could get 50 out of 50 correct through 10 × 10 in only 130 seconds!

The formula is simple: Have every child develop typing competence with a 10-key number pad by scoring a rating of 100 on our Copy Cat topic, then have them work on Fast Multiplication until they raise their rating to 100. For some, this will take 1-2 weeks, and others, 2-3 months. Students who complete these tasks can then move ahead to work on any piece of the math curriculum that they choose. We once observed a student finish the entire 5th grade curriculum in one month alone.

2. You should also send your teachers to http://www.mathscore.com/school/teacher/ so that they can learn about MathScore.
3. You might also wish to consult our School Version FAQ.
1. Kids take a while to settle down in a computer setting. It takes at least a few minutes for them to "get in the zone", and some kids quit early if they are anticipating the end of a lab session With only a 30 minute block of time, kids might only be looking at 15-20 minutes of engaged time. In comparison, a 1 hour block of time produces about 50 minutes of engaged time. Statistical data we've collected in the past suggestions that one 1-hour block of time produces about 50% more engaged time than 2 separate 30-minute blocks of time.
