What makes Maths Wiz superior to any other program?
Guidance from our tutors
Knowing that their work is being monitored by a tutor, and that a goal is being set by someone outside the home,
encourages students to use the tutoring program on a regular basis.
Also, our tutoring staff can pick up on students who are not working in a productive manner, such as
guessing instead of studying, working at a curriculum level which is too demanding, struggling to achieve
or idling and give them the guidance that they need.
It's really easy to send reports to the tutors. You just click a button on the menu and all of your
children's reports will be sent to our secure web-server.
The Maths Wiz program is tailored to each state's curriculum so everything your child learns at school can be
revised at home. Our dedicated team of teachers writes the program to syllabus so the content is relevant
and up-to-date. This allows your child to build a solid foundation of knowledge so that they are prepared
when it comes time for tests.There is very little time in the classroom to revise key topics so it's reassuring to know that
Maths Wiz allows your child to do just that in the comfort of your home.
Maths Wiz also has Achievement tests for each chapter and year level and also includes
sample State Numeracy Tests for the AIMS test or BST.
Every lesson has interactive maths problems, which is a tremendously powerful feature. Having questions
on the computer rather than printed worksheets makes the program interactive and fun. It also means that
the student is immediately corrected and can go on to get the next problem right - thus gaining confidence all the time.
Random number games
Beat-the-clock challenge games, with unlimited random numbers, help kids get up to speed with
mental arithmetic. Addition, substraction and multiplication are basic maths skills, just like
spelling is for English. The 'warm-up' games in Maths Wiz are designed to make the student compute
numbers without consciously thinking about it.

The computer even talks to you, to tell you the right answer!
This is a structured course, so students should progress through from the top to the
bottom of each unit. Maths requires a lot of practice, so using the program makes sure
that everything required for school is practiced and absorbed. The program marks and
corrects immediately so your child knows exactly what to do and how to do it.
Australian made for Australian kids, so you can be sure your child is supported throughout
Making sure that you are ready for secondary school
In school, only the top students are expected to complete the primary maths course
with thorough understanding. In fact, many go up to secondary school having only done a portion
of the Upper Primary course. This means they are very unprepared to cope with high school, and
this can result in a serious lack of self-esteem.
Maths Wiz students can go up to high school with confidence because they have
learned and understood the mathematical principles that that they need to know.
