Dear Parents or Guardian:
Your student has been using the ST Math software program at Highland Elementary. The students play visual
math "games." Your student's teacher is now able to make selected games available for use from a computer
with an internet connection at home. This added feature allows your child to play "JiJi Math" games at home.
Games will only be accessible from home if the teacher assigns them as "homework".
Your student will access the program just as they do at school and, just as at school, they need to play and
win the games themselves to get the math learning benefit. The games should not be shared by others in the
Your student is used to the ST Math method, which involves solving often complex puzzles. They start at
very simple levels, which gradually get more difficult. The ST Math program is designed so that each student
reaches a challenging level for them. They may get temporarily "stuck" at a level. This is normal, and the
classroom teacher can monitor whether they are stuck for too long. When they reach a learning hurdle, they
should try to reason their way to a solution. The software gives constant feedback to show why any answer is
right or wrong.
