Keeping your kids on target with school and education can be quite challenging and math tends to be one of the most challenging subjects ( it was for me). Luckily, my daughter took after her dad and does pretty good with math, the problem is to keep her motivated and encourage her to keep improving. That is when programs like Smartick become a pretty important tool!
What is Smartick?
Smartick is a unique online learning method, that has been approved by the European Union and which has received different awards. Smartick helps your kids reach their maximum potential through mathematics, promoting mental agility and concentration along with math and mental skills. Smartick is now being introduced in the US. More than 32,000 students from 100 countries have been through the program so far.
Designed for children 4 to 14 years old, Smartick is powered by the latest Artificial Intelligence technology: ability-based, your child progresses at his or her own pace, building self-confidence, avoiding frustrations, and developing a positive attitude toward math.
This is a great after-school activity that can be accessed from any computer or tablet at any time without a set schedule, other than the daily assignments that can be done at any time.
The program utilizes games to keep your children engaged and improve their concentration levels. All the games in Smartick program are scientifically designed to strengthen cognitive skills: perception, attention, memory, and logical reasoning while keeping learning fun.
Smartick does not follow the official curriculum or State standards. Instead, Smartick prepares your child to move ahead faster than they would do in school and goes beyond what’s taught in the classroom.
Using the program is really easy, you create an account and create your kid’s profile. Once the profile is set up, the program gives your child a test to assess his or her level and skills. Once that is done, they will start sending your kids’ daily assignments to complete.
I love the fact that they will email me with the results and will also let me know if my daughter did not do her assignment. This allows me to keep on top of her progress and make sure she is doing her part.
My daughter loved doing the daily projects but after a while, she started to complain that they were too easy for her…Remember the daily projects are sent based on her performance on her assessment.
While you can not change the settings, you can, however, contact the Smartick team, and they can adjust the levels of difficulty on your child’s assignments.
