We have some very exciting news regarding a new Maths package that we have subscribed to – Hegarty Maths!
To access the website your child should log in to www.hegartymaths.com.
The following details will then be requested: -
- School name
- First name
- Date of Birth
- Set your own personal password
All students have attended an assembly this week explaining the new system and received some training as to how to use the website.
The Maths department will be using Hegarty Maths to set homework and intervention materials specific to your son/daughter. Each student can log in and complete tasks at any time and they will receive instant feedback. The maths staff will be setting 1 set of homework per week and it is important that your child engages fully with the task(s). Each task is supported by a short video clip of approximately 10 minutes, followed by a quiz to complete based on the video content. Students should use their homework book (provided by their Maths teacher) when completing the work to make notes, answer questions and write in all corrections. This book will then serve as a revision resource. In addition, your child can voluntarily do extra work if they wish by accessing all the other video clips and quizzes at any time – there are no restrictions! Homework club in the ICT suites is now available every day after school from 3-3:45pm to facilitate Hegarty Maths. All their sessions are tracked and their teacher will be aware of any additional tasks completed.
It is expected that your son/daughter will spend a minimum of one hour per week using Hegarty Maths to help with their revision. Each teacher will receive the following information based on the homework set:-
- Time spent completing questions.
- Number of attempts at each question and score on each question.
- Time spent watching the video.
- Breakdown of results identifying areas for development.
We will be linking rewards to Hegarty Maths with faculty prizes for:-
- Most Skills Completed to 100%
- Most Questions Answered Correctly
- Most Hours of Learning (Total)
There will be a live Hegarty Maths demo and more information available to you during Parents Evening. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions relating to Hegarty Maths or any other matter in maths.
