Free TenMarks Summer Math Program (an Amazon Company)
Summer has almost arrived, along with it is the end of the school year. Here in our area, next week is the last week of school. With summer approaching, parents are faced with the fact that education and learning doesn’t stop with the last day of school. There are a lot of things we can do throughout the summer to help our children to continue to learn outside of the classroom. Sometimes it’s not even a matter of learning new material but keeping the skills they’ve learned this school year and not forgotten. The TenMarks Summer Math Program is a great way for children to use screen time productively and will help keep their math skills sharp and developing all summer long.

Did you know that research shows students lose two to three months of grade level math equivalency over the summer? That is A LOT! This seriously impacts your child’s readiness for the next school year. TenMarks, an Amazon company and recipient of the 2015 CODiE Award for Best Math Instructional Solution, is working hard to keep students engaged over the summer to reverse learning loss in math before heading back to school.
This national program provides your student with a personalized summer course based on a summative end of year assessment. Because the TenMarks program is available at home and on the go, parents can encourage their children to use that screen time in a much more productive way. Data from 2014 showed that the TenMarks Summer Math Program helped reverse summer learning loss for over 69% of participating students—in just 8 weeks, with one-hour of use per week, students tested at the beginning of the program and then again at the end of the program averaged 11% increase in scores. Those are impressive numbers, especially if you’ve ever seen your child struggle at the beginning of the new school year as they try to remember some of the material they covered in the previous grade.
The program starts with a diagnostic assessment which is used to automatically create a personalized summer curriculum. This reviews concepts from the previous year and introduces concepts for the year ahead. As your child works through their curriculum, they use embedded hints and video lessons to refresh what they know while learning new material. The program adapts with targeted interventions for real-time learning assistance. The program is available for students completing 1st grade through Geometry and Algebra 2.
This program will help build your child’s math foundation and skills and benefits teachers as well. So often the first several weeks of the new school year are spent relearning and re-introducing material from the previous year.
I spent some time with my now 4th and 5th grade children getting to know the program. We worked through the assessment together. Immediately I saw them struggle with a few of the questions. Some of it was math they didn’t learn this year and some of it was math they already covered but didn’t remember learning this year. They’ve both always loved learning and even as little ones would ask for “math homework” or write unprompted reports on science topics. I knew that they’d love the TenMarks Summer Math Program and that it will be a great use of our computer and tablets over the coming months.
Tutoring can be so expensive and it’s so much more convenient to let them practice at their own pace as schedules allow. With 5 kiddos at home, I appreciate the fact that it is free to use!
TenMarks believes that students learn best when they are individually engaged, nurtured, and motivated. Its programs are designed for the depth and rigor of the new math standards and every TenMarks lesson helps students build a strong conceptual foundation, improve problem-solving skills, and gain math confidence. TenMarks math programs have been used by millions of students across over 55,000 schools and over 12,000 districts.
The interactive and rewards based program really kept the attention of my kids. I am thrilled to be able to have this as a tool for summer learning.
The program is available today and runs through August 31, 2015, and is available free to every family in the United States. The regular price is $39.95 so this is a great savings for families.
