    Online Programs

    XtraMath

    What: This is an online fact practice resource.  The program starts the students with addition facts and once they are mastered, it moves them to the next skill.

    Why: Mastering math facts will increase confidence and decrease the amount of time students will need to solve simple computations so they can focus on the other skills being taught.

    How: Students will navigate to https://xtramath.org/#/signin/student_other.  From there, they will sign in using the following information:

         Email: Math Teacher's email address (firstname.lastname@acaedu.net)
         Username: their first name, last initial (no spaces) ex: JaneP
         Pin: 4-digit number witten on their planner (same number used for TTM) ex: 1234

    The program only allows them to practice for 7-15 minutes daily.

     

    Think Through Math

    What: This is an online program that allows teachers to assign pathways (individual lessons and/or whole units) based on where the teacher or program decides.  This could be based on individual student needs or based on what is being covered in class.

    Why: This allows the student to receive personalized instruction based on their current level.  If they have mastered the current topic, they will be assigned lessons that strech them and keep them growing.  If they are struggling with topics, it with scaffold (remediate) the instruction through additional lessons.  

    How: Students will navigate to https://lms.thinkthroughmath.com/users/sign_in . From there, the will sign in using the following information (taped in their planners on the password page):

         Username: their first name, last initial, pin# (same as XtraMath) ex: JaneP1234

         Password: their first initial, last initial, pin# ex: jp1234

     

    Khan Academy

    What: This is an online program that has multiple features and uses.  The main way aspect that sets it apart is the video feature.  When there is a topic that is confusing, there is the ability to watch a tutorial on the subject and try again.  There is also a feature called Mappers [can only be accesed by typing mappers into the url after the Khan Academy web address (if you find an easier way/shortcut, PLEASE let me know)] that allows teachers to input individual student MAP scores and it targets each student's individual needs based on their MAP scores. It also allows teachers and students to update scores each time a new test is taken.

    We are using the Mappers feature in class, as well as working through the Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade skill sets.

    Why: This allows the student to receive personalized instruction based on their current level.  If they have mastered the current topic, they will be assigned lessons that strech them and keep them growing.  If they are struggling with topics, it with scaffold (remediate) the instruction through additional lessons.  

    How: Students will navigate to https://www.khanacademy.org/mappers . From there, the will sign in using the following information (taped in their planners on the password page):

         Username: their first name, last name, (some may have a number also) ex: JanePost23

         Password: their first name, last initial, pin# (XtraMath #) ex: jp1234
