RM Education has today launched its innovative new maths software, RM Easimaths. Following last week's Ofsted report revealing that 40,000 bright children are leaving school with a 'mediocre' grasp of maths, RM Easimaths is set to be a welcome addition to the teaching and learning of the subject, in the classroom and beyond. Based on the award-winning and hugely popular RM Maths, RM Easimaths has the same high quality, rich content but with an easy-to-use, intuitive and fun interface.
Accessible at school or home, the new software package uses a unique adaptive learning tool to help students aged 5-11 grasp complex mathematical theories without even realising they are doing it. A set of interactive characters - Swing, Snap, Squirt, Scuba and Stripe - provide each individual child with personalised maths tuition and guide learners through maths concepts in a fun and engaging way that adapts to their needs; as soon as they've mastered one set of skills, RM Easimaths automatically moves on to the next level.
Used in a school environment, RM Easimaths provides important data at an individual, group, or class level. Pupil's progression is mapped to the National Curriculum so teachers are able to demonstrate their development to a sub level. Using this data, teachers can plan lessons dependent on class needs, or take more targeted action to intervene when a student is falling behind, or needs more challenging work.
Nigel Rayner, Sales and Marketing Director for RM Education Software comments: "The recent report from Ofsted shows it's clear the UK is falling behind in terms of maths. Maths tends to have a 'boring' and 'difficult' stigma attached to it, and we're aiming to bring excitement back into the subject with RM Easimaths. The new software makes it fun for children; this in turn makes them want to continue learning the subject to a good level on the software - without them realising they're doing it!"
Mastering maths is central to learning. RM Easimaths has been developed to ensure it isn't restricted to set hours in a classroom.
Nigel continues, "The more students see maths as an integral part of day-to-day life, the more natural it becomes. RM Easimaths is a web-based solution therefore it's accessible online making it ideal for students to carry on their learning at home."
The innovative software currently covers areas of the Maths National Curriculum from levels 1 to 3. It is recommended to be used for 10-15 minutes per day, between three to five times a week, to ensure the best results are gained for the students.
By September 2012 the product will cover 9 topics and include activities up to National Curriculum level 5. Schools can sign up now and take advantage of a special introductory offer of 15 months for the price of 12 months. To access RM Easimaths visit: www.rmeasimaths.com
