Discovery Education provides engaging digital resources to schools and homes with the goal of making educators more effective, increasing student achievement, and connecting classrooms and families to a world of learning.
Oakwood Intermediate School has recently begun participating in a comprehensive (kindergarten through fifth grade) program in math that is housed on the internet. Students receive a special username and login password from their math teacher so that they can access this program. Teachers create assignments based on their studies in their classroom. Students can work on this program in their classroom or even from home!
First In Math® is an easy-to-use, educational website that gets young people excited about math. Specially-designed "games" develop and reinforce basic concepts, and are a great way for students to have fun while learning skills that will last a lifetime. Studies show that children who use the site on a regular basis experience significant improvement in math proficiency.
Content ranges from addition to algebra, and children proceed at their own pace—mastering problem-solving, computation, critical-thinking and pattern-recognition skills—as they advance through the levels of the program.
There is no software to install, games play on a PC or Mac, and updates are automatic. Each child receives his or her own, personal User ID and Password, and will be able to play the games 24/7 at school or at home. Explore the site with your child and discover a great learning experience!
The FIRST IN MATH® web site is for educational purposes only and contains no advertising messages.
