Principal Voice

  • Russell Burt
    Principal
    Pt England School

    Maths-Whizz is a great programme that develops independence and helps us cater to the individual learning needs of our students. The data that our teachers receive is easily accessible in a detailed report and assits with further development of an effective Mathematical learning environment. Maths-Whizz is easy to integrate into the classroom and makes any program more effective.

  • Veronica Stevens
    Deputy Principal
    Wellesley College

    Maths-Whizz is by far, the best online programme that I have ever come across and I would have no hesitation about recommending it to any school. It provides each student with a personalised maths programme that enables them to work specifically at their level, have their own learning needs addressed and allows them work at their own pace. Putting together such individualised teaching and learning in any other programme would take hours and hours of planning. The tracking of students is second to none. Maths Whizz is a fantastic teaching and learning programme that I would never be without.

  • Aaron Kemp
    Principal
    Mangawhai Beach School

    After using Maths-Whizz at our school for a number of years we now would not be without it. After completing an action learning analysis into the use of the programme we saw significant growth in our students who used Maths-Whizz for 60 minutes per week, in comparison with students who did not. We are sold on the benefits of real time reporting, a personally designed and targeted mathematical learning pathway, links to the New Zealand Curriculum and fantastic support from both the developers and company directors. If your teachers regularly monitor the programme you cannot help but see improvements across the mathematical strands.

  • Curtis Gaylor
    Principal
    Ruawai Primary School

    After trialing Maths-Whizz and seeing the benefits for our students, we now use it at all levels. Already, after one year, data is showing that students who have been using Maths-Whizz for 60 minutes or more are making accelerated progress through the GloSS stages compared to other students. Maths-Whizz automatically sets differentiated, adaptive programmes for each child, saving teachers time and ensuring children are getting lessons at their level in each topic. We are excited about the differences Maths-Whizz is making for our students and the time it is saving our teachers as they use the data to make their OTJ’s, analyse student and class-wide strengths and weaknesses, and are provided with interactive exercises to use with the students.

  • John Western
    Principal
    Seatoun

    Seatoun School has been trialling Maths-Whizz this year and we are impressed with the data correlation between the initial diagnostic assessment that the Maths-Whizz programme administers, and our own assessments. Class-wide weaknesses identified by Maths-Whizz were also identified in our PAT tests, which will mean Maths-Whizz will be a valuable and reliable tool to add to our OTJ discussions and decisions. Maths-Whizz will automatically give students lessons targeting the identified weaknesses. Comments from students are also encouraging, with many indicating that they feel they are ‘learning’ with Maths-Whizz rather than ‘practicing’ as they have been with other programmes.

  • Allan Robertson
    Principal
    Yalhurst School

    When we saw Maths-Whizz via a Skype presentation, we were hooked. Maths-Whizz brings 21st century learning to life as students, teachers and whanau make the best use of technology to develop not only mathematical competency but an internalised self-motivated learning disposition as well. It provides rich data in meaningful, easy to access reports. Dare yourself to make a real difference to mathematical achievement.

  • Anne Lye
    Principal
    Churton Park School

    The best aspect is that once the assessment has been completed, it’s personalised for each student, without me having to reset things. Maths-Whizz is great to work with – they offer excellent support and there’s always a quick response. As a Principal, I love being able to send out personalised messages of encouragement easily, and regularly.

    Maths-Whizz has been fantastic for engaging our students, especially those with diverse learning needs, including children on the autism spectrum. They like the personalisation of the programme, the level of challenge and how fun it is. Maths-Whizz has been a hugely beneficial support for the maths learning of our students.

Student Voice

  • Student
    Mangawhai Beach School

    Maths-Whizz is a fun way to learn Maths–Whizz will take the time to teach you the strategy. The lessons are fun because the animations are fun and you are still learning even though you are actually having fun.

  • Student
    Mangawhai Beach School

    I struggle with maths and I didn’t particularly like maths. I like it when you learn something new with the teacher and then you find yourself doing the same learning in whizz and the practise in Whizz makes you feel more confident. I am not freaking out about maths anymore.

Parent Voice

  • Becky Baines
    Parent
    Christchurch

    Our children have loved using Maths-Whizz as a complimentary online tool alongside their regular maths curriculum. They have enjoyed revisiting and practising old concepts and gaining a better understanding of processes they hadn't quite understood. They have really enjoyed the fun aspects of games and especially liked acquiring little pets they could buy food for! As a parent I appreciated being able to watch their progress in graph form and thought the encouraging emails I could write them was a neat bonus, something they also were delighted to find. Maths-Whizz has been a great addition to our homeschooling programme.

  • Rachel a’Court
    Parent

    Maths-Whizz is by far the best maths programme I have ever come across. The animated lessons make learning a fun and engaging experience. The parent reports are a fantastic way of keeping track of your child’s progress in different areas. My son actually asks to do Maths-Whizz he loves it so much, and as a consequence, is excelling in maths beyond his age.

  • Suzanne Croad
    Parent

    For the first time the kids actually ASK to do maths! Maths-Whizz is a very comprehensive programme that, while having fun, the children are also exposed to tutorials in specific areas in which they are demonstrating weaknesses. The teacher resources are extensive and easily accessible.

  • Julieanne Francis
    Parent

    At the age of six my daughter was in tears, not wanting to go to school because she ‘couldn’t’ do Maths. I had no idea how much pressure kids put on themselves when they first start school – expecting to be able to know everything straight away. Then Maths-Whizz was introduced to her school. The difference in Lily’s attitude towards learning has been incredible. She ASKS to do her Maths now – there are no more tears and heartache. She can’t wait to log in everyday and has newfound confidence in her ability that has transcended in to everyday things. The part that I like the most is that if she wants to have a break she is able to decorate her virtual bedroom or see how her points are adding up and go to the virtual shop and shout herself something for all her hard work! Then she happily returns to her sums. IT has variation and is entertaining – it is practical learning. I just wanted to thank the people who brought Maths-Whizz to our little town for their understanding of what children need to succeed in what can be a scary new world.
