Math for Prizes is one of the best apps available to learn math. The reason is it creates a self-motivating experience to earn prizes while learning. Imagine being able to tell your parents you have earned a chocolate milkshake, all while learning your math.
To play Math for Prizes, or any other Prize App, the parent or teacher needs to join Every.CITY as a resident, which is free. As a resident, they can then create student memberships, as well as configure the criteria for practicing and going for the prize. For example, the resident could create a membership for Susan and set the number ranges, the minutes, the number of problems and the prize. The same resident could also create a membership for John and set a different criteria for him.
Now, both Susan and John have memberships in Math for Prizes where they can practice and go for the prize. To get to the Math for Prizes app, the resident or the student would need to go to their city within Every.CITY and then select the Family Specialty Website. From there, they could select Math for Prizes and Log In with their student credentials the resident created. The student could then either practice and not be limited by the clock, or they could see if they could earn the prize established by the resident.
Or, they could check the prizes offered by local businesses to see if they wanted to try for that prize. Typically, a student can earn unlimited prizes from the residents, but can only earn one prize per business per campaign. Businesses can also offer larger prizes where the student would be entered into a drawing, depending on the business and the prize.
Each app can easily be configured to match the needs of your students. One student can focus on their 9 times tables and another student can focus on their 7 times tables.
In addition to parents or teachers providing prizes like a candy bar, an extra hour of TV, skipping a quiz, etc. local businesses can also easily add prize options for the student to select like ice cream, miniature golf, slice of pizza, etc.
Why be forced to use the pre-programmed data in other national apps when we can customize your apps to match your local curriculum. All our database-driven apps are already created and all we need to do is enter the data from your curriculum into the database and our app and your curriculum will match.
The Every.CITY apps contain three reusable templates that can be used by teachers to provide challenging and rewarding learning experiences for their students. And once a student learns how to use one app, they will have generally learned how to use them all. The templates are as follows:
By joining Every.CITY as a Board of Education, or as a school, you will be provided with Sign In credentials where you are able to quickly and easily create your own apps. The interface is ready to go -- all it needs is your data.
The process of entering data is simple. Just follow these steps:
Your app will then be available to all residents within your county. They can then use it with their students to foster a self-motivated learning environment by setting goals and earning prizes. You might even have local businesses contribute the prizes as well.
Finally, if you like, we will create a custom flyer for you to distribute to your students to take home and share with their parents.
