    Mathletics

    I have worked with two of our year 7 teachers to assist with integrating Mathletics in their mathematics programme. As both teachers are new to using Mathletics we covered a number of the features available in the teachers centre. We looked at grouping students, how to show/ hide mathematical strands, assigning tasks, restricting levels in the LIVE section, the use of workbooks and how points, certificates and gold bars are gained.

    I also showed the students how to use the many tools available to them to help solve mathematical problems. We looked at using the following: the concept section using the animated dictionary and the concept search, how to use the support window and to change the level of difficulty, we also looked at the hall of fame to motivate the students to complete activities for homework.

    I will show the teachers how to use the problem solving section, the blog and the games section, so that they can introduce these areas to their students.

    Year 7 & 8 Faculty
    We have an ICT Club ruinning in the faculty, there are 20 mmebers. Two ICT monitors from each HR meet weekly to learn new tips and tricks to assist teachers and students in class. The girls also showcase the skills they have learned in ICT Club at Levels Assesmbly this happens once a month.

    Ultranet is also utilised in the faculty to share homework, notices, duties and to create discussion amongst the students.

    We have started using Mathletics to support learning in mathematics. I have led a couple of PD sessions in Year 7 & 8 to help teachers group and level students, also to use a number of the tools in the teacher centre.

    Our main ICT focus for Term 2 will be to utilise Mimio tools in the classroom programme.
