Review - Thurgood Marshall Elementary

In the continuously evolving era of high stakes testing, it is essential that all students have a deep-seated understanding of their basic math facts. For years, teachers have looked for ways to help increase students math facts skills. For some, it was in the form of call and respond activities coinciding with an audio recording. For others, it was daily grading of timed paper and pencil math drills.

As the math facts facilitator at Title I School in Chesapeake, Virginia I spent an average of six to eight hours a week grading and producing math facts reports in hopes of improving our student's basic math facts knowledge. In this day and age, parents aren't often available to assist their children in learning their math facts and as a school we knew we had to address the problem.

However, efficiency became an issue. As teachers' responsibilities continue to grow and evolve, I had to find a more efficient way to facilitate the Math Facts program. My search ended when I stumbled upon a new math facts program called Ubersmart.

With the implementation of Ubersmart, our students no longer take bi-weekly paper pencil math facts tests. Instead, they have the ability to practice and /or complete a math facts test on a daily basis. I no longer have to spend time creating certificates for students as they complete the various levels of math facts or take 6-8 hours a week grading hundreds of papers. Ubersmart does it all for you instantly! The UberSmart program provides students instant feedback regarding their test results, allows students to track their progress using a student friendly graph, instantly produces recognition certificates, and gives teachers the capability to monitor and print reports specific to individual student progress. Furthermore, In support of the RTI initiative, the program manufactures practice math facts sets based on the individual student's needs. From a facilitators standpoint, inputting and tracking data has been a breeze!

Our students have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the math facts program. In fact, not a day goes by when a student will stop me in the hall and share which level of math facts they just passed. The students are excited, they are motivated, and most importantly they are mastering their math facts. What more could your school ask for? This cost effective program is certainly worth the investment to your school.

UberSmarts Math Facts is a very effective learning tool. In our homeschooling, we use it alot! My kiddos love the challenge and the visible results of their progress.

I love to see their faces when they "master" a particular set of math facts. Their confidence soars!

Connecticut public schools have embraced the Common Core math standards which eschew traditional math procedures in favor of conceptual explanations. This means that children are encouraged to draw pictures of math "sentences" rather than actually memorize them as facts, thereby robbing them of the computational fluency needed for higher math. UberSmart software is the ONLY reason my son knows his math facts and will be ready for Algebra in spite of his public school education. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much for this program. This is just perfect for my special needs boy. I like it because I can change the seconds for answering (or have no time limits) and also because it does not have lots of bells and whistles to distract.

I purchased the flash card software for my daughter when she was in 4th grade. She practiced every night for ten minutes and within a couple of months she was one of the 'experts' in her class during math games. I only wish I had bought it a couple years earlier!

-- Virginia Clark

I loaded the math software on my children's computer and within a short time they had discovered it and voluntarily began using it! They love trying to "master" each number set... even my 3 year old asks to do computer math almost every day :-)

Ubermath helped me with my math facts A LOT! I love the way you can try to reach mastery goals and see how much progress you've made.

I think [Math Facts] is great, my son thinks it is more of a game than a learning tool! I love that it tracks his progress and grades it for him! I highly recommend this software!

UberSmart is the perfect warm up before a math lesson. After a round of UberSmart we are able to get right into the math without waiting for "clearing of the brain fog" that my kids seem to have at the beginning of most math lessons. This makes my time much more productive and effective. The kids get better grades when they do UberSmart first. We love UberSmart Math Facts!
