Research shows that students learn best when they are appropriately recognised for their efforts. Mathletics uses a variety of mechanisms to encourage and reward students to strive for great performance. These include:
- Mathletics Points
- Bronze, Silver & Gold Certificates
- The Mathlete Maker Credit System
- Hall of Fame – Top Students & Top Classes
Students and teachers alike have found the Mathletics rewards system to be a fantastic way to foster student motivation and engagement in mathematics. Under this reward system, students are encouraged to work through Mathletics to gain points which accumulate to achieve credits and certificates.
So how does it work?
The more correct answer – the more points!
Points are awarded to students as they successfully complete Live Mathletics and Curriculum Content within Mathletics. Students gain points for each correct answer. The more correct answers – the more points! Students receive the most points through completing Curriculum Content with each correct answer equating to 10 points. The points contribute to their earning of certificates and a place in the Hall of Fame.
20 consistent weeks of work = 1 Gold Certificate
Certificates are granted when a student earns 1000 points or more within one week. This encourages students to complete a healthy amount of work each week and rewards students for every week they practice. Students initially earn a Bronze Certificate, then a Silver Certificate once five Bronzes have been earned. With four Silver Certificates, a student then receives the much-coveted Gold Certificate, demonstrating their long-term commitment and developing ability.
Create your ideal avatar!
Credits are earned by participating in Live Mathletics and the Curriculum Content. These credits allow students to purchase items for their online avatar. This is a fun and engaging way for students to personalise their experience, encouraging a greater investment in their efforts and results.
Hall of Fame
The Top Students Hall of Fame shows the top 100 students in the world. This is a daily leaderboard and counts only points earned by students during the current 24hr period (the countdown to the next daily reset is shown at the top of the Hall of Fame).
The Top Classes Hall of Fame shows the top 50 classes in the world. This is a weekly leaderboard (running Sunday-Sunday) and counts the average points earned by all students in a class this week.
