Sample quizzes and lessons

 One of the many useful features at MATHTRAK is the the direct link between the question that represents a key concept and the lesson that teaches that key concept. If a learner is having difficulty mastering the key concept then he/she can work backwards through lessons that teach the prerequisite concepts and skills needed to master that particular concept. So that you can better appreciate MATHTRAK's approach, we are delighted to provide these Mathematics lessons and quizzes on Whole Numbers free for your use here.

Example of Problem solving tutorial

 In addition to enhancing the mastery of the skills and procedures for each key concept in the National Curriculum, MATHTRAK also provides a comprehensive problem solving tutorial which has over 100 challenging mathematics problems ranging from upper primary level to upper secondary. The tutorial is made up of six sets of problems ranging from SET F (Years 5/6) through to SET A (Years 11/12). Each of the six sets introduces 10 different types of problems often found in mathematics competitions. Each of the 10 types of problems is introduced with a "Training" problem where the learner is given considerable support in the form of HINTS, background THEORY, and suggested STRATEGIES. The learner is then provided with a "Challenge" problem that parallels the Training problem in style and strategy but where no support is provided. The learner is encouraged to begin with SET F and may progress as far with the tutorial as he/she can manage. As new key concepts are learnt, the learner may revisit problems yet to be solved.

Example of Number drill game

 A major stumbling block when learning mathematics is a lack of automaticity with recalling and perfoming basic skills. This is no more evident than with number facts. Learners who have not got excellent proficiency with their basic number facts are like tennis players who can't serve - they can't get started. MATHTRAK provides a fun arcade-style game that helps the learner to improve his/her number skills both with positive numbers in primary school and negative numbers in secondary school. The learner's score on the game can be saved allowing his/her progress to be followed. At the end of the game, the number facts that were missed are listed for the player and advice is provided on how to use the game to improve the learner's skills.
