I have too many students to give them all the individual attention they need, can MathAmigo help with this?
Yes MathAmigo is designed to save you time and help you deliver the best possible math lessons.
1. MathAmigo Manager provides you with teaching plans to meet the differentiated needs of your students.
2. MathAmigo automatically adjusts the difficulty of the questions to meet the performance of the student.
3. Feedback and Tutorial support provide the first level of support.
4. Teacher Alerts let you focus on struggling students.
5. Formative assessment reports show you where to direct your effort.
What is the teaching plan based on?
The teaching plan is based on a survey of typical scope and sequences used by publishers. You will notice that we have given you the opportunity to use your textbook scope and sequence as a plan. This means the activities will supplement the work you are doing with your textbook.
If your textbook has not been included please contact us and we will add it to our work list.
If your school district has a teaching plan for all the schools in the district please contact us to discuss adding the plan into your options.
Yes: the basic correlations are to the NCTM standards. We also correlate to Texas and New Jersey. We are in the process of correlating to the state standards and will publish these in due course. The next to be published will be Washington State and California. Please contact us regarding your State if you wish us to make it a priority.
How do I get activities into the Activity Machines?
If you use Classic MathAmigo you use a Docking Unit connected to the computer. It simultaneously transfers data to 6 units. The Docking Unit is part of the system. Palm and Dana use the HotSync process. Various wireless solutions will be on offer by June 2005.
The system provides both formative and summative assessments. The formative method uses color patterns so that you can spot the strengths and weaknesses of individuals, groups or classes. You can export data into other reporting systems.
