Using “Freckle” to individualize the teaching of Maths
Freckle is a new Maths product from the Accelerated Reader company and is designed along the same lines. It is an online resource which gives a baseline test initially which establishes the students’ strengths and weaknesses in Maths. The programme then provides personalized support material in areas required and this is done in a fun and engaging way. Assessment tests can be administered at intervals to check progress.
Freckle continuously adapts for personalised maths practice, while offering teachers the ability to focus on individual pupil objectives. It delivers real-world scenarios, skills practice, and peer-to-peer support with pupil-friendly incentives and age-appropriate designs to provide a balance of fun and learning. Freckle has over 60k carefully graded maths questions and continuously adapts to meet students where they are and help them progress on their individualised learning path. Freckle engages every pupil by rewarding their achievement and delivers an age-appropriate experience that will have them asking for Freckle. In the 2019–2020 school year, students in the U.S. who used Freckle 15–30 minutes per day experienced measurable growth toward maths fluency.
The presenter, Pat Hanrahan, has used Accelerated Reader over many years in his own school and will outline how it is set up and its benefits. He will also answer any questions from Principals or teachers about the resource.
