How can I get my students to do math every day?

Math Corner has been working on developing a program that will encourage students to build a strong math foundation that has them practice math on a daily basis.

And it’s finally here Infinity Math Pack!

 

What is Infinity Math Pack?

Infinity Math Pack is a club we created to encourage all students to work on math concepts every day to increase their overall skills and confidence. Many parents have been asking for us to create a flexible, affordable program for students, particularly elementary through Pre- Algebra, to learn and practice their math skills.

As part of Infinity Math Pack, students will receive access to an online math learning platform and can work at their own pace. Periodically, students will receive custom feedback from one of our expert staff and when needed, can schedule a power session. Power sessions will provide true one-on-one learning of concepts they are currently struggling with or help with understanding of new topics to get ahead of their class. The online component provides an adaptive diagnostic and unlimited interactive questions with detailed explanations. There’s even an app to practice on the go!

Parents and students will receive exclusive discounts on products at the Math Corner store and discounts on workshops (including the Parent Series). Another great perk is that they can participate in challenges and attend family events.

How will this club benefit a student currently enrolled at Math Corner?

For the current students, the club will provide both, access to unlimited problems which their tutor can assign to target specific skill areas and the motivation to do these additional practice problems by participating in the contests. Encouraging the student to practice those skill areas independently will strengthen their math foundation and would allow them to use their limited time with their tutor more efficiently. Students can also use the program to preview new topics before they are taught in class to increase comprehension. Infinity Math Pack is a perfect supplement for current students needing to continue practicing skills from prior classes or students that receive little to no daily homework from their teacher.

How can I encourage my child to participate?

We have made that easy for you! Our program includes participation in family events and monthly contests and prizes and special Winter and Spring Break challenges. Students are recognized for their effort and achievements and are rewarded with prizes. Monthly contests will be held and judged based on factors like most questions completed, most time dedicated and most skills mastered. Leaderboards will be updated and emailed weekly. Any student who works on the online problems in their plan for at least five minutes per day, five days a week for an entire month will be eligible to win a prize.

What is included in the cost?

The Infinity Math Membership can be purchased for the school year and/or our special Summer Challenge. For the school year, there are two different packages, Starter Pack and Classic Pack, which both run through May 24th, 2017 (last day of the school year for CCSD). Both packages include access to an assessment, unlimited math questions, contests, discounts and perks, as well as progress reviews. In addition to everything included with the Starter Pack, members of the Classic Pack will also receive some special perks and an onboarding session with an assessment review that will introduce the parents and the student to the learning platform and provide topic recommendations. The Starter and Classic Packs are priced at $100 and $175, respectively, for the entire school year. Current Math Corner families will receive a $25 discount for students attending or their siblings. Information on continuing with the Summer Challenge will be announced in March 2018.

What discounts are included?

All families will receive a $10 discount for each workshop by using a special discount code given at sign up. Those purchasing the Starter Pack will receive a 10% discount on the items in the Math Corner store. The Classic Pack members will get a 20% discount at the Math Corner store, a free club t-shirt and a free bring-a-friend ticket to our family events.

What are power sessions?

Power sessions are 30 minute private tutoring sessions that can be scheduled on an as needed basis. Power sessions are for students 1st grade through Pre-Algebra, struggling with a specific topic or needing additional assistance with difficult concepts. Each session can be purchased and scheduled online using the link provided at sign up.

Is the online component of Infinity Math Pack exclusive to Math Corner?

No, we are using IXL, which provides an immersive learning experience aligned to the Nevada math standards. As an independent tutoring center, it would be impossible for us to have created an expansive curriculum that met the needs of our students, so we spent many months looking at all of the options available and determined IXL was the best fit for how we intend to use it with students that are part of the Infinity Math Pack.

How can I monitor my student’s progress?

By completing the regular practice problems and diagnostic questions, you’ll always have an accurate profile of your student available immediately. The diagnostic will outline a plan of what the student should work on to advance to the next level. We will also review each student’s progress and send out progress reports. Starter Pack members will receive an initial progress review within a month of start date and three other reviews coinciding with Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer Break. Classic Pack members will receive an initial progress review during an onboarding session and monthly progress reviews thereafter.

How can I get started?

Stop by our office to fill out the enrollment paperwork to get started. Students will then receive information to login and complete the adaptive assessment. From there, students will schedule their onboarding session for the Classic Pack or receive their initial progress review for the Starter Pack. Parents will want to keep an eye out for weekly email with the current leaderboard and announcements.
