We just released a new feature: Teacher Rewards! In this module, teachers earn points when their students answer questions and pass lessons in the program. Teachers can then "spend" these points on rewards for their students. Reward students with game minutes, games, badges, Moby Friends minutes, sweepstakes tickets, or educational videos called Maxoids! We handed out a bunch of free points for you to get started - why not give rewards a try today?

Settings changes, new games, and more!

Posted by MobyMax on Jun 6, 2017 8:11:07 AM

We know how much you love to share students with other teachers, and we know that sometimes it's hard to keep track of settings when you share. To help manage settings for shared students, we've introduced the "Principal Teacher" setting. This allows any teacher to adjust who gets to control a student's default settings. Under the "Share students" menu, you will see a new tab called "Shared Teachers." Click the principal teacher name link to change the principal teacher for any given student.

Math Really Can Be Fun: Victory Tunnels, Theme Songs, and MobyMax

Posted by MobyMax on May 23, 2017 3:08:55 PM

MobyMax’s Amy Weiss was thrilled to see Florida elementary school teacher Trisha Quattrocchi tweeting to celebrate her students’ impressive achievement: 100% mastery of 5th grade math. What could be the secret to her class’s success? Here’s how Trisha explained it herself:

Trisha:

I am a 5th grade math teacher at Lake Magdalene Elementary School. None of my students are in AGP, but they are a seriously dedicated group of learners. Our focus is on mastering 5th grade standards, and boy, do we celebrate when we do!

We start out the year with a pretty classic testing process: in September, the students took their county formative tests and a MobyMax placement test. I used the formative test results to assign specific lessons in MobyMax.

Every six weeks since then, I have had students take another MobyMax placement test to see where they’d improved and if they’d mastered standards they previously missed. I also use the test results to create mini groups and assign leveled “exit tickets” using both Kahoot and paper quizzes.

New Settings and Sort Features

Posted by MobyMax on May 2, 2017 9:53:53 AM

Every student deserves to have curriculum customized to meet their specific needs. And every teacher needs easy-to-use tools to customize curriculum. To help teachers tailor MobyMax to their students, we've made some changes to the Curriculum Settings menu. When you click the "Curriculum Settings" button on the teacher dashboard, you'll now be taken to the "Default Settings" screen. Here, you can set default settings for your entire class for each individual subject, adjust settings for non-curricular modules, and hide subjects and modules from students.

“MobyMax made my teacher heart swell with joy” as student effort and enthusiasm soared

Posted by MobyMax on Apr 10, 2017 3:46:51 PM

Testing season is upon us. How do you prepare students in a way that ignites their internal fire to learn, accelerates their learning rate… and makes you so happy, you could burst?

Moby contests!

Recently, we helped teachers prepare students for state achievement tests by challenging them to compete in a MobyMax Math and Language classroom contest. In Moby Math, students master key topics like place value, operations, proportional relationships, expressions and equations, and probability. In the Moby Language Module, students conquer parts of speech, verb tenses, punctuation, new vocabulary, and more. Both modules align with Common Core standards, so they fit seamlessly into most schools’ educational objectives and requirements.

There’s nothing we love more than a tweet from a principal about her teachers’ success using MobyMax! 

Recently, Rebecca Norwood, principal of Decker Elementary in Pomona, CA, tweeted her praise for special education teacher Kristi Brewer. Ms. Brewer is using MobyMax bulletin boards to help boost her students’ success in building fact fluency and mastering operations.

We checked in with Ms. Brewer to find out how she’s used MobyMax bulletin boards so successfully with her students. 

“Let me start by saying how much I love MobyMax!!!,” she said. “It has been such a great addition to my classroom.”

Ms. Brewer also loves the way her classroom MobyMax board inspires her students to achieve.
