Does your child need help with math?

What do the math programs do?

The math applications allow you to create unlimited users and administrators, the users can practice, take quizzes and do tests with no limit to the amount of time or problems they can do. We Believe repetition is a good way to help kids to learn basic math skills, so these programs allow kids to do unlimited randomized problems when doing practice, quizzes and tests in both the free and activated versions. Kids can use various help modes and can pick between three buddies that will react to their accuracy. These programs do not have any negative sounds or reactions to missed problems. Kids can see how many problems they have done and how long they have been working, even how long they have worked since starting the programs (that is all their practice, quiz and test sessions added together), all from the math screen.

Kids get a notification when they have completed their work so they know exactly when they’re done.

The programs also give a notification of uncompleted work on exit if the set amount is not reached. When they login they are given the option to practice, take a quiz or test, but they are told what they are supposed to do (including if they've completed it) before they start.

What is included with the standard user tracking system and settings?

In the activated version the user tracking features are available to administrators and record all progress of every user. Administrators can then login and view each kid’s progress through charts and summaries of what they did each day. Here is a screenshot of the graph:

The administrators also get an option to view test problems when viewing test results. The test problems screen generates a pseudo worksheet view, which contains all the problems that the kid did in a test on a certain day. This allows you to easily see which types of problems the kid has been having trouble with and possibly change settings to help the kid in those areas. The test answers page is shown below:

An administrator can configure settings for each kid (when you create new users, you can change each user’s settings manually, but there is an option to change default settings so that those settings are automatically applied when you add users). There are settings for practice, quiz and test such as, setting how long or how many problems they should do in each and when they should do each. For some programs you can configure what type of problem the kid should do like advanced addition for example lets you choose how many addends (up to 5) and the maximum numbers that the kid will get when doing practice, quiz or test. The settings also allow administrators to set time limits for quiz and test and change help settings (including disabling help if the kid does not need it or needs to practice without help). Here is a screenshot of settings:

Practice, Quiz and Test

Practice

is simple, it lets the kid answer unlimited random problems, has help visible and is not timed. The kid is notified when they complete their work but is not forced to stop. On the contrary a kid is notified if they try to exit without having all their work done, but again they are not forced to keep going.

Quiz

is different because it is timed like a test, but unlike a test the kid is given help. the time limit can be set in the user settings and is the same as the time limit for tests. Quiz does not hold as much weight as test and is a sort of preparation for a test. Results of a quiz are not graded and are considered practice, so there is no separate summary or improvement charts for quiz; it is included in the practice summary and charts because it is considered timed practice.

Test

it is timed per problem and the results are all documented. The results are automatically graded* and all the problems are stored so an administrator can see the whole test like it is on a worksheet. The administrator sets how many problems and the time limit per problem in the settings for each user.

Grades may not be identical to what a school system may give a kid.

Why should I buy the activated version?

For little more than a single math workbook the activated version gives you all the features listed above, and with no limit to how much practice, quizzes and tests you can do, it can potentially replace many workbooks. There are no recurring fees and your activation never expires. And you still get all the tracking, records and documentation of a child’s work that you would get from writing in a workbook. The program also saves paper because the math steps are integrated into the program, which means there is no need to work anything out on paper. The free version still allows for unlimited practice, quizzes and tests with all the buddies, help and stats from the activated version. When practicing with the free version there is only one user (a sample user) and one sample admin, the free version cannot create users. The free version also does not save any progress that is done by the sample user. We plan to put sample progress and test results in future versions but for now there is none. You also have access to all the help topics and can modify the sample user's settings, but it will only save the settings temporarily, so when the program is restarted the settings are lost.
