HCS Launches New Program to Increase Math EngagementChattanooga, Tenn. (Apr. 1, 2021) – Hamilton County Schools recently announced the creation of Math Matters, an initiative that engages students in math through a combination of game play and traditional lessons to appeal to their interests.

The new program offers students math learning activities that focus on fact fluency, computation, and word problems. Students can access the program on any device at any time through the Classlink website, which houses all of their online learning tools.

“The goal of Math Matters is for all students to engage in math skills daily and grow their math fluency,” said Dr. Bryan Johnson, Superintendent of Hamilton County Schools. “Our district is committed to accelerating student achievement, and we believe this new program will help narrow achievement gaps in Hamilton County Schools.”

Progress and participation will automatically be tracked, and students will have the opportunity to earn both individual and schoolwide prizes throughout the program including gift cards, snacks, and class parties. The top schoolwide prize is a $10,000 library and the top individual student prize is being name Student Superintendent of the Day.
