Testimonials

What some of the parents and schools had to say.

Parents
Our son has shown great improvement even though we initially doubted that 10 minutes a day would make a difference. He is no longer hesitant in practicing his maths because he can see the difference himself.
K.P.

One of the best value for money programs that we have bought for our children. I feel that it is helping our child learn, it is practical and a pleasant change from computer games.
K.S.

Schools
The ability to test students either by producing worksheets or directly from the software is of great value. Our senior classes can now simulate real test conditions with this software. We have flexibility in changing the difficulty and duration of the tests, which we find very useful.
R.V. Primary School

This fits right into our maths curriculum and is a tremendously helpful tool. We have recommended it to parents as a practical homework activity for our students.
L. Primary School

A valuable software program that is easy to use. It provides us with measurable outcomes and helps occupy our children with relevant activities. The students love it.

Product Overview (Young Einstein Mathematics)

‘Maths Practice’ software works by exposing the child to repetitive exercises which facilitate cognitive learning. Exercises that are provided are based on the existing maths curriculum and represent the known learning difficulty areas. With over 330 activities in the school versions, there are activities that are applicable for every students needs.

The software is divided into the appropriate year levels 1 to 6. It is further subdivided into components like space, chance and data, measurement and a variety of general numeracy components including multiplication tables, addition, subtraction, fractions and many more miscellaneous topics. Within these areas there are multiple different activities that reinforce key learning components.

The software is versatile by providing varying difficulty levels and the ability to customise certain parameters to make it relevant for the child’s immediate and personal needs.

Reporting is provided at both the immediate activity level, and also by tracking ongoing and historical trends. This enables educators to determine where there are stumbling blocks, and it also provides constructive feedback that clearly shows positive trends in the various graphs. Historic reports and graphs can be viewed from the ‘View History’ option. Detailed activity results which shows every question and answer, can be viewed only after the activity is completed from the ‘View Results’ option.

All modules provide encouraging feedback on each answer in either visual or audible format. Comprehensive instructions are provided for each activity to guide and explain how to attempt the module.

In addition to difficulty levels, Young Einstein Mathematics can be also be used for testing and timed activities. All modules can be set up based on a fixed number of questions or a preset time limit for the activity (school site license editions only). To maximise leaning outcomes, it is recommended that multiple activities should be attempted daily and set to approx 10 minute intervals. This ensures that the child can stay focused on the work at hand.

By default, questions used in the software are all random, meaning that the child can not rely on memorising the sequence of answers from the last attempt. In the school edition there is however, a facility to repeat the exact same sequence of random numbers if desired. This is useful for testing multiple students in a classroom environment by benchmarking them all against the same questions.

Customisation of the software is divided into 2 areas. The student can customise parameters relevant to their immediate environment, whereas the administration has amongst other features the facility to lock and restrict student changes.

Maths Software Customisation.
The maths software can be customised to suit a school’s specific needs. This could be as simple as changing colour schemes, adding personalised maps or backgrounds, changing parameters in modules or even adding a specific module or catering for special needs by increasing font sizes or adding audio questions. Costs are based on the amount of work required, the potential for reusability and are provided as a fixed quote.
Software development is an expensive exercise and it is always worth while asking user groups and associates to join together to make a project viable.

We can provide the service as the existing software is modular based, allowing for ease of new or alternative component integration. If you have specific demands its worth discussing it with us first.

Documentation.
Documentation is extensive. It includes recommendations for network setup, administrative rights and privileges that should be applied when installing on school networks. In addition recommendations on how to structure tutorial work is included.

Maths practice software was designed to assist a broad base of students at various levels of competency. The original math software was bundled together and only sold as a school site license. However, this does disadvantage students who need assistance in specific numeracy components but were not enrolled to a licensed school.

We now also have a student license version. It has 250 of the 330 modular activities, however some administrative functions are not available.

School Extended Site Licenses covering all modules are also available. Schools who have purchased the software under the Extended Site License, can distribute it to all their full time students for personal usage at home.

Students wishing to purchase their own full copy of the software can download the latest version from the web and try it before you buy it.
