Creating opportunities for mathematical learning outside of school has become an important focus of the work of our project.
In April 2012 we introduced a ‘homework drive’. In November 2013, we also introduced resources that can be used during the long summer holidays.
All the homework resources are available here.
In general, low-income students lose around 3 months of grade-level equivalency during the summer months. Middle-income students lose about 1 month of grade-level equivalency over the summer, therefore, the achievement gap widens. Research shows the summer programs and family programs which increase reading and numeracy in a recreational way help to overcome this.
With this in mind, we have put together a couple of activities that learners (and their families) can do over the summer holidays to keep their minds active.
