Free Math Resources for Summer Learning

May 6, 2015
Educators are all too aware of the effects of summer learning loss. Research shows students lose up to three months of grade-level math equivalency over the break, which impacts their readiness for the next school year. Oftentimes, teachers have to spend the first weeks of school re-teaching the lessons their students forget before moving on to the new curriculum.

TenMarks, an Amazon company, is offering teachers and parents a way to reverse the summer slide with free access to the TenMarks Summer Math Program, an adaptive online program that provides personalized assessments and lessons tuned to the needs of each student.

Beginning today, educators can visit summer math program to access materials and resources to easily share the program with students and families. The TenMarks Summer Math Program officially begins on May 19, 2015.

TenMarks Summer Math has lessons ranging from first grade math through geometry and algebra 2. Starting with a diagnostic assessment, the program automatically creates a personalized summer curriculum, which reviews concepts from the previous year, and introduces students to concepts for the year ahead. As students go on, TenMarks features embedded hints and videos, along with targeted interventions for real-time learning assistance.

Last year, TenMarks reversed summer learning loss for over 69% of participating students, with students showing an 11% increase in scores from tests taken at the beginning of the program on average.

Teachers can encourage parents to be more productive over the summer, whether at home or shuttling them to their activities, by downloading the TenMarks Math for Students app on iPad, Android Tablets and Fire OS.
