    We are using Lexia to help children struggling with reading. I was wondering if anyone had any programmes they use that are similar for Maths? Have been recommended Mathletics but thought I would see if there are any others. Thanks

    I hear Maths classes are good for that.

    We use a programme called Accelerated Maths (AM) which runs alongside Accelerated Reader (AR).

    From what I have seen of both areas - the Reader is a lot less fiddly for staff, pupils are competing to read the most words - we've even got word millionaires!

    Both programmes have a 'test' to begin with to level the pupils. For AM, you group your pupils (we've chosen red, amber or green depending on their level) and they all work on similar work but tailored to their ability level. This bit is the fiddly part as you have to select work for all the students individually, usually about 10 tasks each time.

    The admins (teachers, TAs etc) can view progress and which questions the pupils are getting stuck on. Tests can be done how ever often you choose.

    If we have any queries, we just go to the website and have a live chat. You get a transcript of this sent to you afterwards.

    Sorry for long answer!
