Welcome to Math SuperStars, a voluntary math enrichment program sponsored by the Sommer Elementary School PTA! 

Math SuperStars will begin on September 11, 2017 for 1st-5th grade students!  Kindergarten will begin in January.

This year, the program will be a little different than in the past.  We will be using Khan Academy, an online classroom that provides self-paced practice and immediate feedback.   Here is how it will work:

1.  Your child will receive an information flyer from their teacher with a class code.  
2.  Create a parent account on khanacademy.org and "add a student".
3.  Log into the student's account and visit khanacademy.org/coaches.  In the "Join a class" field, enter the class code.  (See the list of class codes here).  This will make Math Superstars a "coach" for your student so we can track their progress.
4.  To begin work, from the student dashboard, click on the "Subjects" pull down menu in the upper left of the screen.  Select your grade level under "Math by grade".  
5.  Click on "Mission" and the Mission warmup will pop up.  This is a placement tool that helps Khan Academy know the level of questions that are best for your student.  
6.  After the warm-up, your child can continue working problems or exit.  Simply continue the mission when they come back.  Our goal is for students to spend 20 minutes on Khan Academy each week of the program.
