Arithmetika is mathematics assessment

Focus on the two main areas of mathematics

Number Agility (mental arithmetic)

Curriculum competency

How quick are your students with mental arithmetic?

Ask your students to hit this button and see if they can get 100% in the time allowed. Each time they start the task it will be different!

Try this randomly selected task from the entry level sticky star work plan, Mental Agility (Number). When you sign up you will be given five tasks like this one. When you have scored 100% in all five tasks you will have earned your first sticky star, and you are automatically assigned the next five tasks - if you are signed up as an Arithmetika user!

The sticky star program

The unique Arithmetika assessment experience.

Imagine a maths quiz, exercise or test that is different every time you look at it! Imagine a quiz where the computer knows the answers to real questions, not just multiple choice and number only questions, and does all the marking whatever the question.

Harry Potter magic? Indeed not. Delivering this experience is the core of the Arithmetika engine.

Arithmetika does this magic not just on number questions but on algebra too! See more example tasks

Arithmetika is all about leveraging computers to create valuable and useful assessment tasks.

Teacher and parent information

Practice makes perfect. Rote learning may have a bad name but there's no substitute for repeated practice until you are, well, perfect. The motto for these Mental Agility tasks is Throw Away the Calculator.

Get your Year 7 or Year 8 students to tackle the Mental Agilty (Number) task they see here and let them have a go. If they don't get 100% you need to ask them to sign up! This is the Arithmetika student experience.

There are sticky star work plans for Mental Agility (Number), Enhanced Number Skills, and one for each of the Australian Curriculum Years 7 to 10A*. Each plan has at least 65 individual tasks.

If you would like to know more about the other work plans, read more here.

For Teachers (schools)

Arithmetika prides itself on providing the means to enhance all three corners of the classroom experience - teaching, learning and assessment. You teach, assisted by the materials in Arithmetika; your students practise what you have taught using the Adaptive (formative) learning exercises; and you set tasks to measure and monitor student progress (summative assessment).


For Tutors

Assign tasks to your students and monitor their progress between visits! Link up with parents and teachers. Use the Adaptive learning diagnostics to discover very quickly and efficiently your student's strengths and weaknesses - all for you to focus on!


For Parents (families)

In Arithmetika you will find a very novel and profitable way to help your child with the important but difficult subject of mathematics. If your child is at an Arithmetika school you can ask to have your own secure access to the maths work your child is doing. If you start a Family account you can directly manage all your child's mathematical activity!


For Students

A parent, teacher or tutor might have told you about this site, or you may be an independent-minded user self-directed to come here. All the maths for students needing help with year 6 to 10 maths can be reached here.

If your teacher or tutor is an Arithmetika user just ask for your Class Access Code to get started.
