)-- TenMarks Education is proud to announce that TenMarks has been chosen as one of Dr. Toy’s Best Vacation Children’s Products for 2010. TenMarks online math programs for grades 3-10 help students avoid the “summer slide,” - a learning loss phenomenon in which every student loses 2 months of math learning every summer.
Dr. Toy’s awards were developed by noted child development authority, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D., aka Dr. Toy, as a service to consumers who want safe, affordable, educationally-oriented materials for children for vacation time or on the road. Dr. Toy’s Best Products for summer 2010 are carefully chosen, using extensive criteria that Dr. Auerbach has developed over many years. The criteria she uses includes: safety, age-appropriateness, design, durability, lasting play value, cultural and ethnic diversity, good transition from home to school, educational value, learning skills, creativity, improvement in the understanding of the community and the world, good value for price, and, naturally, fun.
TenMarks summer math programs meet the learning needs of every student because they are personalized and map to state standards. Interactive worksheets, on-demand hints, interesting video instruction and real time results engage today’s digital kids who prefer to work online, and at their own pace. Developed with the help of experienced math teachers, and based on data from thousands of students across the country. TenMarks summer programs help maintain the skills the students learned over the school year, and introduce them to what’s coming next year so that they are prepared and confident.
Joanne S., a parent of a 7th grader who used TenMarks last summer said, “My daughter is one who 'forgets' over the summer, and TenMarks was a great program to keep that from happening. In general math last year, she received all B's. At mid-quarter, her average is currently an A. I credit your program for helping her 'maintain' over the summer. As a former teacher, TenMarks was a great combination of allowing children to drill on what they need to know, and instruction/explanation if needed.”
TenMarks co-founders Andrew Joseph and Rohit Agarwal said, “We are proud to be chosen as a best vacation product by Dr. Toy. Families today realize the importance of a good math foundation, and digital kids today like using TenMarks because it allows them to proceed at their own pace, and provide help right when they need it. When children understand something, when the light bulb goes off, when they really get it, success is theirs. We’re excited that our unique approach to math learning is getting recognized.”
TenMarks structured online programs of practice, assessment and instruction have been found to motivate, instill confidence, and improve student achievement. TenMarks summer programs run for 3 months and cost $39.99 per student for unlimited use. The program can be paused for vacation. More information is available at http://www.tenmarks.com
