Dear Parents & Caregivers,
In recent years, Marian Catholic College has trialled the use of MathsOnline as an additional resource in the teaching and learning of Mathematics. We have found it to be a beneficial and effective tool in providing students with a bank of relevant revision and practice material. The students who have accessed this resource in previous years have found that it was helpful, easy to use and allowed them to improve their Mathematics.
Lessons are presented to students in a manner similar to a classroom situation, so that a student may hear and watch a demonstration of the content, as well as receive clear instructions on how to solve a variety of problems. There are then questions which follow the example given, and students receive immediate feedback as to the accuracy of their solutions. The site is available to students 24 hours a day, allowing help to be on-hand at the time required.
If enough students are interested in subscribing, the distributors of MathsOnline will allow the students of Marian to subscribe to the program for a discounted price of $20.50 per student for the year. If students join with a private subscription, the regular cost is $200 per student.
Due to the expenses parents have had to meet this year, the Mathematics department has not made this resource compulsory for students. However, this program could be considered as an alternative to private tuition, and the cost of $20.50 per year is significantly less than the cost required for tutoring.
Maths Drop In is also available to all students. It is held on Tuesday afternoon in A19 from 3:30 to 4:30 and it is a time when any student in the school may gain assistance from a mathematics teacher.
The Mathematics faculty is committed to providing every avenue of support for your child. Please do not hesitate to contact the college should you have any concerns.
If you choose to subscribe, please fill out the form and make payment via the Trybooking Link below. PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to subscribe for more than one student, select ‘Add Student’ in the student details section. Trybooking allows for multiple payments.
