Tested, verified… and now proven! A major independent research study found that the results of students using Mathletics are up to 9% higher in external Government testing.
Delivering a proven NAPLAN advantage to students…
We’ve always known that Mathletics provides a significant advantage to all students who use it. Now it’s been proven.
Dr. Tony Stokes, from ACU Sydney, recently published an independent study looking into external standardised test results from over 8000 schools over a five year period, across Grades 3, 5, 7 & 9. The results speak for themselves…
The study found that by spending as little as 30 minutes per week on Mathletics curriculum activities, students can gain a potential advantage of more than 9% in NAPLAN results. What’s more the impact is cumulative, students with longer-term usage (>2yrs) saw an even greater jump in results.

Don’t take our word for it…
“The results of this study clearly indicate that using Mathletics has a highly significant impact on the average attainment of schools in the NAPLAN test. There is a 100 percent likelihood that the schools who use Mathletics achieve higher results than schools that do not.”

Bring the Mathletics Advantage to your school
Empirical evidence from Dr. Stokes’ research highlights key ways to maximise time with Mathletics and gain the greatest advantage. Here are some top tips…
Students that complete two to three Mathletics activities per week have been found to gain up to a 9% advantage in NAPLAN. Assign Mathletics activities directly from your Teacher Console. Each activity takes between six and seven minutes to complete on average.
Revise and consolidate student learning by printing NAPLAN practice papers from the many available within the eBooks area in your Mathletics Teacher Console. This will help familiarise students with test conditions and help to ease the strain of a testing environment.
Support fluency in numeracy with Live Mathletics. The ten levels of the gaming area offer a fantastic opportunity to support and increase fluency in core maths skills. An excellent follow-up after your students have completed their weekly assignment of practice activities.
We love learning. That’s why we offer every school a free trial of Mathletics. See how you can get the Mathletics Advantage in your classroom today.
