Understanding International Maths-Age

After the initial diagnostic assessment, each student is assigned a Maths-Whizz International Maths-Age. This is useful for determining where a student needs to start on their Maths-Whizz journey, and also to allow student progress to be measured. It should not be seen as a NZ maths-age, or a measure of NZ maths ability.

Parent Webinar

This 15 minute webinar shows you 5 keys to engaging your child in their learning and making it fun!

Maths-Whizz engages students when it is monitored by both teachers and parents and children are encouraged to make their 4 Learning Progressions a week and celebrated when doing so! 


Understanding Learning Progressions

Our target for every child in the new learning area is
4 Learning Progressions a Week in the new learning area - Weekly Tutoring Journey.   It is important that you and your
child understand the significance of learning progressions and how they gain them.  Helping your child with answering tests will set their programme too hard, and they are likely to have to re-sit their assessment to ensure the right level for them.  
Usage in the new learning area is capped at 90 minutes a week.   
Process Sheet for Understanding Learning Progressions


Understanding Topic Challenge - Consolidation

Students have unlimited time to consolidate their learning in the Topic Challenge Area.  We recommend students complete their 4 Learning Progressions before working in Topic Challenge.  We recommend at least 30 minutes of consolidation in the topic challenge area for every 60 minutes of usage in their new learning area above.    This video explains how they can move their exercises from 'no medal exercises' through to gold medal exercises to consolidate their learning and earn maths-credits.


Understanding Return On Investment

We want to ensure students are maximising their learning time as they can't get it back again, so we encourage them to give their best to get their best 'Return on Investment' and make as many learning progressions as they can when they are in their Maths-Whizz Tutor.

This great video can be applied in other areas of their life.

  • Maths-Whizz is a great programme that develops independence and helps us cater to the individual learning needs of our students. The data that our teachers receive is easily accessible in a detailed report and assists with further development of an effective Mathematical learning environment. Maths-Whizz is easy to integrate into the classroom and makes any program more effective.

    Principal, Pt England School

  • Maths-Whizz is by far, the best online programme that I have ever come across and I would have no hesitation about recommending it to any school. It provides each student with a personalised maths programme that enables them to work specifically at their level, have their own learning needs addressed and allows them work at their own pace. Putting together such individualised teaching and learning in any other programme would take hours and hours of planning. The tracking of students is second to none. Maths-Whizz is a fantastic teaching and learning programme that I would never be without.

  • Maths-Whizz has been fantastic for engaging our students, especially those with diverse learning needs, including children on the autism spectrum. They like the personalisation of the programme, the level of challenge and how fun it is. Maths-Whizz has been a hugely beneficial support for the maths learning of our students.
