Mathletics is a powerful tool or weapon of “mass instruction”. This session will show you how to use Mathletics to identify which outcomes your students are currently meeting, and where there are gaps in their learning.  This outcome specific information can be provided for the class overall and each individual student by using the assessments available in Mathletics.  Mathletics can also be used to help fill those learning gaps by using differentiation, and using the information from student activities to group students for small group instruction based on their results from activities.  Come and learn how to put this amazing tool to work for you and your students this year.
