What is Freckle Maths Practice?

There are two kinds of Freckle Maths Practice: Adaptive and Targeted.

Adaptive Practice

Freckle Adaptive Maths practice allows pupils to practise their maths skills across different topics. The best part is, Freckle adapts while they work. All pupils start with a baseline in each domain or group of topics. The baseline determines their starting level. But, as pupils work in each domain, Freckle is constantly adjusting to them. Freckle provides pupils with remediation problems when they are struggling and pushes them onto more advanced concepts when they are doing well. (Note: If you are using Freckle integrated with Star Maths, a pupil's Star Maths assessment score is used instead of baselines to determine the pupils starting level; see "How does Freckle integrate with Star Assessments?" for more information.)

Pupils can perform Adaptive practice on their own or teachers can assign it to them.

When pupils first go to Freckle Maths, they will see the different domains or groups of topics.

The first time pupils start working in a domain, they will take a baseline. Then, they will be placed at the level that is "just right" for them and they will be able to start practising.

All maths questions for Years 1–6 have audio that pupils can select to hear the question read aloud. All maths questions in all years are available in Spanish too!

Targeted Practice

Targeted practice works just like Adaptive practice, except that YOU get to choose the skills and objectives the pupils practise! You can assign pupils a certain objective to work on from your Freckle Teacher Home.

Pupils can also choose to work on levels/objectives that they have already passed. This also qualifies as Targeted Practice, because the pupil is choosing to target a specific skill on his/her own.
