Math Minutes!

Math Minutes

Using Technology to practice math at home.

Does your student enjoy being on the computer? Did you know that they can access grade-appropriate math practice at home? Kindergarten through Second grade can use Redbird. Third grade through Fifth grade can use Redbird or Aleks. Both programs are designed to engage students in practice and offer support on topics that students are struggling with. Below are the steps on how you can access these programs at home.

Go to https://canvas.collierschools.com/

Have your student sign in with their student id number and password. You can ask your student’s teacher for this information if they do not know it.

Click on the resource tab on the left side of the screen. Students should be familiar with this as they use Canvas at school daily.

Click the red McGraw Hill Icon

Click either Redbird or Aleks
