First in Math
In Math we have started a new online program called First in Math. Our school has chosen this outstanding educational website to help your child master fundamental and advanced mathematics skills. First in Math activities employ Deep Practice techniques to rapidly increase computation, problem solving, critical thinking and essential math basics. Skills that may take months of regular practice can be mastered in a much shorter time using Deep Practice techniques and the immediate feedback online learning can provide.
Although content is presented in a “game” format, the skills developed are key to success in higher mathematics. Content ranges from addition to complex algebra. Children using FIM have shown dramatic increases in math scores—across the board—from the top students to the most math-challenged learners.
Your child has been given a First In Math User ID and Password. If you choose to access the site at home, your child will need a computer with internet access and Flash Player software. (free download)
We ask you to encourage your child to play a few minutes each day to greatly increase their math skills, as well as their overall academic confidence and performance.
