Numbershark remains a very popular program with anyone improving basic numeracy skills and understanding and for remedial numeracy (for dyscalculia4). The latest version 4.07 has 9 new games. It will address many difficulties that lead students to dislike maths, including poor:

  • short-term memory
  • attention span
  • sequencing skills
The effectiveness of Numbershark in addressing these difficulties has lead to an increasing number of Australian schools installing network versions for whole classroom training.

The program features around 50 totally different games covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Additionally Numbershark 4 has now included 9 new games and new topics (see below) in ways which add meaning and understanding to the operations.
The games are played with your chosen units of work (topics) from a finely graded list of over 500; each topic generates a new set of sums every time you play the game, and printing of a wide range of customisable worksheets is possible for additional reinforcement.

Topics:

  • The units of work or "topics" form the structured course. They address each of the number operations. Topics covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole number are broken down into very small steps, isolating one new level of activity at a time. Learned facts are linked to new ones.
  • Numbershark generates a new set of "sums" for each topic as it is selected. The games for each topic may be reinforced with a wide range of customisable worksheets.
  • Numbers range from zero to seven digits.
  • The 500 topics offer a finely graded structured course with clear examples given on screen to help you select appropriate work.
  • Each of the topics can be accessed directly.
New Topics in v.4 - covering fractions, decimals and percentages include:
  • the difficulties in recognising and drawing different fractions
  • the concept of equivalent fractions and mixed numbers and conversion one to another
  • calculations using fractions
Note: Decimals are shown visually. Calculations involve all 4 operations for 3 places of decimals.

More New Topics are:

  • Units of measurements - new topics practice conversion between different decimal units of measurement
  • Negative numbers - numbers to minus 10 have been introduced on a simple scale and number line.
  • Partition - 2 new games use partition to solve addition and multiplication up to 3 digits.
  • Printing of worksheets has been extended to include fractions and decimals.
  • Administrators can easily set up local currency in Australian $'s for money calculations.

For the teacher:

Managing your students has never been easier. Numbershark 4.08 allows you to specify and record games and topics for each student. You can also change individual access options such as speed. Help screens can be shown alongside any games as you play them and student's scores can be recorded for monitoring progression and performance. Also, this new version is now multi administrator compatible, allowing work to be set by different teachers for the same students. Many schools are installing the network versions for 10 and >10 concurrent users which also greatly simplifies student record administration.

Interactive white-boards & touch screens: Numbershark (and Wordshark) from release 3.05 work well with these. Numbershark 4.08 is accredited for use with the major interactive white-board suppliers, and as far as we are aware works well with all other interactive white-boards.

Numbershark combines motivation and enjoyment within a structured learning process. Its bright colours, animations and choice of games will motivate students and provide them with an enjoyable learning experience.

Easy, compatible and lots of fun.

Suitable for Age 5 to 14.
