Mangahigh – Boss of the North
Friday 3rd July | 3 comments
Learning maths facts is a vital part of becoming a good Mathematician. In lessons the children learn key facts, such as number bonds and times tables, but it is only with repeated practise that these facts become embedded in their brain’s wiring. Once the fact is really understood and learned, they can retrieve it quickly and then their brain can focus on the problem they are applying it too.
Maths computer games are a brilliant way to have fun and practise your Maths at the same time. Mathletics is a great program for this and it is wonderful to see so many children now regularly getting a weekly certificate.
Playing for a short amount of time, regularly, is the best way to practise. Just 15 minutes, a few times a week, really make a difference.
Mangahigh is another online Maths game. It is similar in some aspects to Mathletics, but different in others. As a school we are currently thinking about possibly using Mangahigh at Upper KS2, and Mathletics for KS1 and Lower KS2.
Mangahigh are holding a special competition next week, called ‘ Boss of the North!’ We have set up Mangahigh accounts for children from Year 2-6 using their Mathletics passwords, so that they should find logging in fairly simple. They also need the schools Mangahigh ID – 278209

At the end of the week we will run a Survey Monkey to see what everyone has thought about the program.
