An award-winning online math program for kids

K5 Math will help your child gain skills and confidence in elementary school math.

Math skills are critical

Good math skills are critical to success in school. Unfortunately, many children never grasp the fundamentals and some even develop math-related anxieties

Don’t just ‘get by’ in math - excel in it

K5 ’s goal is to help all kids develop confidence in math and mastery of basic math skills. According to the NAEP's 2009 Study, less than 4/10 grade 4 students are proficient in math.

Comprehensive and research-based online math enrichment program

K5 Math is a comprehensive award-winning online math curriculum which has been used by tens of thousands of kids. The program includes over 1,200 research-based online math lessons and activities.

5 key skill areas

Our Kindergarten through Grade 5 online math curriculum covers the 5 key skill areas:

Numbers and Operations – elementary school arithmetic from simple counting through fractions and beyond.

Measurement – measurement concepts, including telling time and counting money.

Geometry – characteristics and properties of geometric shapes.

Algebra - patterns, relations, functions, use of models and algebraic symbols.

Data Analysis - collecting, organizing, displaying and analyzing data

Learning through real-world scenarios

Kids need to understand math in a tangible rather than an abstract way. K5 builds connections between math and kids' own experiences. For example, students learn:

  • subtraction by helping members of a rabbit family jump off a diving board at a swimming pool
  • problem-solving skills by estimating total costs while shopping at a store
  • to compare large numbers in the context of distances of planets in the solar system

Free online math assessment

We recommend that your child completes our free online math assessment.  Students are then placed at an appropriate level in each skill area to continue to learn at their standard and at their own pace.

Kids work at their skill level, not grade levelBoredom=studying material that is too easy. Frustration=studying that is too hard.  We assess your child's skills to make sure our lessons are at the right level.

A child may be placed at an early Grade 3 level in geometry and a mid-Grade 1 level in phonics, or visa versa, depending on his skills.  Our Guide to Math Levels summarizes what is covered in each level in each skill area.

Kids work independently

K5 minimizes the burden on parents. Point and click interfaces and repeated spoken instructions allows kids as young as 4 to use K5 Math independently.

Lesson sequence is controlled

Our online math lessons are automatically chosen by the system. K5 students cannot choose lessons at an inappropriate level or continue to repeat ‘fun’ lessons that they have already mastered.

Full instruction, not just quizzes

All of our math lessons start with a full interactive tutorial so kids can learn new concepts, not just practice what they have learned elsewhere. Tutorials are followed by practice sessions and finally a quiz.

K5 Learning: online reading and math afterschool program

Interactivity enhances the learning experience

Math concepts are introduced through interactive animations, virtual manipulatives and models. Kids don’t just hear instructions on using a balance scale, but can experiment with it by clicking and dragging virtual weights to weigh various items.

Feedback is immediate to keep kids engaged

K5 Math lets your child know right away when they get something right or wrong. Kids remember better when they receive immediate feedback.

Interactivity + feedback = big advantage

Interactivity and immediate feedback gives K5 Math big advantages over traditional worksheets, workbooks and quizzing software.

K5 Learning: online reading and math afterschool programComputer based learning can decrease math anxiety

Computers are completely patient and impartial. Students learn at their own pace without feeling that they are being judged. In math, it is important to build confidence and avoid anxiety.

Bite-sized lessons provide flexibility

Lessons are broken into 5-10 minute segments so that study sessions can be short and flexible. Most kids learn better with more frequent but shorter study sessions.

Parents get reports

Parents can access comprehensive reports on their child’s progress at any time.
