The online math resource empowers learners to feel confident, think critically, seek help when they need it. Students can reflect on their learning by being able to visually track their progress. Mathletics courses adapts to the learning pace of each child and are aligned to school curriculum.
Games and apps in the Play area of the resource target math fluency, including the famous Live Mathletics. In Live Mathletics students can challenge each other around the world or within the classroom to a real-time race that tests the speed and accuracy of their maths skills. Points are awarded for correct answers and beating their own high score. However the live gaming area of Mathletics is so much more than a fun diversion. It’s a fast-paced and exciting way to improve core math fluency.
A rewarding experience…

Check out what a principal has to say about Mathletics engaging students:
“Mathletics has engaged and encouraged all of my middle school students to become confident mathematicians. For the students that have always had success in math, the program is set to reach and extend their learning to maximize their potential. As for my students that have never been able ‘to do’ math or never ‘got it’ they have be able to feel success and want to learn and be challenged to more difficult material. Parents cannot believe their child (ren) wanting to do their math homework.
The goal for my students was to engage and feel they can be successful in math….Mathletics made that happen and unlocked many of our students’ potential and more importantly their confidence in math.” – Principal, Sir William Gage Middle School, ON
