Moby Contest Creates Math Frenzy!

Posted by MobyMax on Jul 2, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Bridgeport School District ignites students' internal fire to learn using MobyMax

Typically, if you yell “fire!!” in a school, everyone will file outside as quickly as possible. Happily, the kind of fire teachers set using MobyMax has just the opposite effect. Say “MobyMax,” and students rush to their desks to start doing as many math problems as possible.

At least that’s what Herminio “Tito” Planas discovered when he used MobyMax to launch “The Great Mathematics Problem Solving Race.” Tito, the Director of Mathematics for Bridgeport Public Schools in Connecticut, already knew how much students and teachers enjoyed using Moby to improve Math skills. Why not ramp up engagement and pit classrooms and schools against each other in a district-wide competition to see who could answer the most math problems correctly?

Beginning in October 2018, 32 of the district’s 40 schools were divided into three categories based on size. Each group was given a big-time sports name—the Jets, the Patriots, and the Giants—which helped generate team spirit and gave the competition a bit more of an edge.

Whether or not your school is participating in Moby Real Rewards, there are probably times during the school year when you'd like to celebrate but don't want to break the bank. We've put together a list of 20 of our favorite affordable party ideas.

Pep rallies and a hall of fame…for math? You read that right.

Posted by MobyMax on Oct 30, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Ask most students what they think about math, and they’ll groan. They’ll roll their eyes. They’ll tell you how tough it is and how much it bores them.

That’s why what’s going on at Crossroads Elementary School in Owingsville, Kentucky is so exciting. Thanks to MobyMax, students there don’t despise math — they’re loving it!

Stefani Donohew, the school’s math intervention teacher and math coach, attributes her students’ math success to three factors: regular work on Moby in the classroom, using Moby at home, and real rewards for student achievement.

Last Chance To Print Your Data!

Posted by MobyMax on Jul 26, 2018 10:44:27 AM

The new school year is almost here, and that means it's time for us to archive student data to make room for 2018-19!

On July 31st and August 1st, we'll be doing our annual summer maintenance, which means that Moby will be inaccessible between 3 PM EST on Tuesday, July 31st and 8 AM EST on Wednesday, August 1st.

When Moby comes back online, you'll see that your student data has been archived. You’ll still be able to access progress history, placement test results, lesson scores, and session times in the “Prior Year” sections of your Moby reports.

However, if you will need your messages or specific student answers to problems, now is your last chance to review and print those out!

NOTE: Students who were working in Moby during the month of July will not be archived, so they can continue working uninterrupted.
