Using Mathletics regularly with your class is the key to getting the most from it.
We receive so many success stories from schools about the amount of points and certificates that their students earn each week.
The Oxford Report shows that completing just 3 Mathletics activities a week, which equates to about 20 minutes, has a significant impact on mathematics results. However, if a student can aim for a weekly certificate (1000 points) then the impact will be significantly higher!
Mathletics Certificates are awarded as follows:
Bronze Certificate – 1000 points earned in a week
Silver Certificate – 5 × bronze certificates
Gold Certificate – 4 × silver certificates (20 weeks of sustained effort!)
Only one certificate can be earned each week – this encourages consistent participation.
It’s really important to reward hard work and children love receiving certificates to mark their achievements. Some schools hold special award assemblies for their ‘Mathletes’. You can print additional certificates and access other free classroom printables here.
To encourage student participation in school and at home, you could reward one student as a ‘Mathlete of the Week’ every week or at the end of each term. Some schools also have a dedicated ‘Mathlete’ board for celebrating Mathletics successes.
