New Release – Topic Focus

Announcing Topic Focus

Read the Maths-Whizz blog here about the latest in ‘Topic Focus’ which now gives more control to the classroom teacher. With this release you will be able to set a specific topic that your students will access the next time they go into Tutor, and will remain on this topic for the next 3 progressions.

 

Maths-Whizz is an online tutor for mathematics that is a fraction of the cost of private tutoring.
Maths-Whizz assesses each student and gives them a maths-age for each topic. It then sets an engaging individualised programme of learning for each child providing teaching, exercises and tests all at the student’s level in a fun, interactive and responsive online environment.
Parents have access to the reports and are able to drill down into areas of difficulty and clearly see progress students are making in each topic.

If students use Maths-Whizz for 90 minutes a week on average, their maths age will increase by TWO years for every year of chronological growth.

Sample maths report for an individual student

Take a look at a sample interactive parent report below. The data in this report is from an actual student, but the name of the student has been changed.

The maths report explained

Report Tab

Once your child has completed their assessment, you will be able to view their report. At a glance, you can easily identify the improvement your child has made within a given time period, how much time your child has spent on the Maths-Whizz tutor and how well they have done in each of the exercises they have completed.

Progression Tab

You can see that tuition is delivered to your child’s ability or maths age rather than actual age. This means your child is consistently challenged at the right level. The Maths-Whizz online tutor delivers lessons across all maths topics to move your child’s overall maths age forward but with extra attention given to the weaker topics. Measurable progress is shown by the blue boxes. Progress is shown when your child not only completes an animated lesson but short text questions too. That is very important because in this way, Maths-Whizz prepares your child for success in school tests.

More…

In the History tab, projections can be made about your child based on previous improvement on Maths-Whizz. The chart indicates that if your child uses Maths-Whizz Tutoring Plus in Tutor mode, for approximately 30 to 90 minutes each week, their maths age will improve on average by two years within a 12 month period. A routine of consistent use will produce best results. The Text Report tab shows a written summary of the status of your child in each of the topics areas.
