Stop the Summer Slide

Summer is the time for kids to cut loose and enjoy life outside the classroom. But (there’s always a catch) we don’t want everything our kids learned during the academic year to melt away like a snow cone on pavement.

Stop the Summer Slide

Summer is the time for kids to cut loose and enjoy life outside the classroom. But (there’s always a catch) we don’t want everything our kids learned during the academic year to melt away like a snow cone on pavement.

TenMarks was created to help students refine and advance their math skills, and the company offers a 12-week summer “Step-Up” program for practicing math. Founders Andrew Joseph (right) and Rohit Agarwal were looking for a way to supplement kids’ classroom instruction. Their solution is an online service that creates a personalized math curriculum, tailored to each student’s ability and grade level. One of the things we like best about TenMarks is its Web interface. It’s intuitive and engaging, so students can practice and learn math in an environment that’s comfortable and motivating. We also like the hints and videos that offer extra help when a student is stumped by a worksheet problem. Students can do the work at their own pace, and TenMarks keeps parents informed with weekly progress reports.

We heard about TenMarks from Jill Preotle, a friend of Daily Grommet and private equity investor who knows a thing or two about numbers. TenMarks is a convenient, helpful and affordable way for kids to keep sharpening their math skills. It all adds up.
