We have been using 123maths since September 2014 and have a 40 user licence. We use Plus 1 and Power of 2. 123maths is used during form time/registration time for Intervention once a week. We use 123maths for students on level 3 or below for Years 7 through to Year 9. We are finding students on 3b year 7 are achieving 4B in year 8. The students are moving throughout the sets during the year. It has had a massive impact in filling in the basics that they have missed out early on. We haven’t fully used all aspects of 123maths ie: assessments as we are gradually introducing the program but next September with the new students then we may perhaps utilise them. We had issues with receiving weekly reports so stopped using them for now. Whilst the students are using 123maths, the teacher has it open on their iPad, so they can be monitored closely. Students feel a sense of achievement when they receive the star and the ticks, both within school and at home. We would like to see an overall assessment of the basic number skills that students could take at the start and then at the end of the book. 2 of our students using 123maths were on level 2 when they started, one is on 4B and the other 4C.
