We encourage all HMES children to work on iXL regularly. While some iXL work is done at school, it’s primarily a program for you to use at home. On iXL, children work through math practice at their individual math level and earn awards on their profiles. Awards are given on Awards Day to children who gain the most skills for their class and their grade. You can access iXL at https://www.ixl.com/.
We encourage all HMES children to work on Xtramath.org regularly. While some of this computation work is done at school, it’s primarily a program for you to use at home. On Xtramath.org, children work through basic math calculation practice at their individual level. Progress is reported back to the teacher and to you, the parent. When a student demonstrates mastery of an operation (+, -, x, /) Xtramath will alert you and the teacher. Students are recognized on a board in the cafeteria and on HME-TV for their progress. Awards are given on Awards Day to children who master the most operations for their grade.
Math Magician is used in the classroom for children to practice math facts. Teachers choose children each week to race Mr. Green on Math Facts in the STEM Lab on Friday mornings at 7:20. Children are awarded certificates for completing levels. You can access Math Magician at home using http://www.oswego.org/ocsd-web/games/Mathmagician/cathymath.html
