FAQs from iReady

  • Are there things I can do to help my child with math at home?

    We provide Family Letters to help with understanding mathematics concepts, explain the learning goals for each lesson, and suggest activities for you to do with your child to support their learning outside of school. Your child can also access online Learning Games and lessons on supported devices at home.

     

    Can I access a digital copy of my child’s Student Worktext at home?

    Yes, you can find a digital version of the Student Worktext within your child's Student Digital Experience at home on any supported device. Click the Bookshelf icon to access it.

     

    Can my child access the student dashboard on my phone?

    At present, you cannot access the student dashboard on a phone. To test if the program will work on a device or iPad®, visit http://cdn.i-ready.com/systemcheck/ for a system check.

     

    Which Learning Games should my child play?

    Learning Games are available on the student dashboard. The games are designed to strengthen fluency, number sense, and conceptual understanding of challenging mathematics standards in a way that is fun and engaging for students. We encourage students to use the games for roughly 20 minutes per week or more at the discretion of educators or families.

     

    Why does the program present different ways of solving a problem instead of just one, single way?

    Ready Classroom Mathematics engages students with solving problems using different approaches to encourage them to become flexible in their thinking and problem solving. Students’ conceptual understanding is deepened by making connections between different models and strategies, and their judgement is enhanced by selecting the best way of solving a given problem.

     

    Are there math manipulatives that would be helpful for my student to use at home?

    You do not need to own any specific math manipulatives to be able to support your child at home with the program, but it can be helpful to know what types of manipulatives students are working with in class so you can include them in at-home practice. You can access Digital Math Tools through the student dashboard.
