FIRST IN MATH is great for differentiated instruction. K to 8 content is organized into six basic modules: Skill Sets; Just the Facts; Know & Show; Workout Gyms; Bonus Games and Measurement World. Activities are presented in an online "Game" format that engages students.
While the emphasis is on the improvement of numerical fluency and mathematical skills, each activity is also designed to strengthen problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills. Modules parallel each other; completing Game 1 of any Skill Set unlocks a multitude of Bonus games geared to that skill level.
The program features a Competition/Rankings component to provide motivation and sustain high activity levels. As students play, they earn virtual award "stickers" that accrue to their personal and classroom score.
