Solve IT Years 2-3

U2B Booster Years 2-3

Course Information

Capable mathematics students do not always reach the Upper 2 Bands in NAPLAN Numeracy. In many cases, these students are skilled in performing calculations and applying rules, but are not proficient problem-solvers.

Solve IT provides capable mathematics students with a process for solving problems as well as a bank of problem-solving strategies to use on demand. Students also develop literacy skills that are needed to interpret questions correctly.

Target Group

 

Students should be tracking towards the Upper 2-3 Bands in Numeracy, operating at or above a reading age of 8.0 years, be able to log in and use a computer, and be ready to actively participate.

Assessment and Reporting

Assessment Reporting

A pre-test provides diagnostic data and identifies each student's starting point, and a post-test measures distance travelled.

Both tests require students to solve NAPLAN-style numeracy problems. 

 

Schools are provided with a report containing pre- and post-test results, attendance data and survey feedback as well as qualitative report card comments for inclusion as an OLA.
