The more students spend time on the platform, the more real math growth results. This assumption is supported by our method for presenting and moving a student through the school year curriculum with our unique scoring system.
Each task on Happy Numbers covers a particular math concept. Within each task, students complete several problems with increasing levels of difficulty. Below you can see the score counter with fruits at the top of the screen -- this is our adaptive scoring system.
When students give a correct answer, a bead moves from left to right on the score counter. When students make a mistake, we provide guided intervention to help correct their thinking, and a bead moves back from right to left. To advance to the next task, students have to move all the fruits or beads to the right.
This system ensures that each student completes the right number of problems before they are ready for more complex concepts. This is how curriculum progress within Happy Numbers translates into real math growth. And that’s why it’s so important that you keep track of attendance rates and weekly time spent to influence students to achieve their weekly targets regularly!
