One of the Year 7s decided that it was such a beautiful day that she moved her learning environment outside.
She was tired of the 4 walls in her room. Fresh air and a great outlook made for a more productive learning environment.
Year 7 Mathletics
The students in Year 7 NLEP Numeracy class use Mathletics to explore and consolidate mathematical concepts. Here are some comments from three of the students:
I like using Mathletics because it helps me with my math’s and it is not too hard or easy. If you get stuck it has a thing that you can look at and it tells you what to.
It is also fun to do and it helps you a lot to understand the questions and it tells you if the answer is right or wrong. – Armani
I like using Mathletics because it fun. A good thing about Mathletics is you can try again. – Daniella
I like using Mathletics because I can see my goals that I need to work on. -Taylah
