Put some numbers in their summer!

June 13th, 2014

Keep your kids on track
Did you know the average summer learning loss in math and reading for American students is about one month every year? Worse yet, the loss is cumulative, summer after summer, and can impact your student's success.
Unbelievably Understandable Math
MathTacular®is highly engaging and just plain fun! (Who knew you could turn a car into a rolling ruler?) As your children shadow Professor/Detective Justin and friends through humorous and intriguing scenarios, they'll learn – and remember – a whole spectrum of mathematical concepts without even knowing it.
Who can benefit from MathTacular?
MathTacular is generally appropriate for kindergarten through grade 5 students. Older students can also benefit from MathTacular 4 (word problems). Families often use the program to reinforce what they've learned during the school year. It's also an entertaining refresher for learners of any age who want to brush up on math skills.
What does MathTacular cover?
MathTacular teaches more than we can tell you here. Here's an overview of what to expect:
  • MathTacular: addition, subraction, ordinal numbers, mass, fractions, measuring and more
  • MathTacular 2: money, time, place, value, area, statistics, perimeter, graphs, estimating, basic geometry and more
  • MathTacular 3: prime numbers, factors, angles, coordinate planes, time zones, conversion, long division and more
  • MathTacular 4: finally, world problems made simple!
