Who are 10ticks?

The 10ticks team have been producing quality maths resources for over 10 years. The wealth of experience has allowed us to create a comprehensive bank of resources for parents, teachers and tutors to use in educating children.

Our materials are used in over 70% of UK secondary schools, are present in several countries including Australia, South Africa, India & Malaysia and have been written by Heads of Maths with over 100 years combined experience. 10ticks bring best practise from different countries together in one collection which means you can rest assured that our materials, guides and tests will be of the highest standard.

Do you write for any other subjects besides maths?

Not at this moment in time. We currently focus all our energies on providing quality maths resources for ages 4-16. That's Foundation, right the way up to Year 10a! Where other companies may provide maths, this is often restricted to either primary OR secondary school ages. We all come from maths backgrounds and build on over 100 years in cumulative maths teaching experience.

What if I don’t know which level my child is working at?

We understand that every child learns at their own pace. That’s why the Home Learning System contains a National Curriculum Leveller Test feature that will help you to establish the level your child is currently working at and the best resources to use with them. When a child logs into their Student Account they will be required to complete the test and the System will then put your child on a course it deems suitable based on the answers they have given.

Can the worksheets be filled in online?

No, our worksheets cannot be filled in online. To fill them in, you need to print them out or alternatively your child can view them onscreen and answer on paper, enabling him/her to show their workings out. Printing out is better for the kinaesthetic learner who likes to touch/feel things rather than onscreen for the audio/visual learner. This is called blended learning and is the most effective model for computer learning. You may want to let your child have a special exercise book for this purpose, and you can also encourage self-marking.

How often should my child be on the system?

We recommend 3-4 times a week for a minimum of 30 - 45 minutes. The worksheets are designed for consolidatory work (i.e. lots of questions). It may be appropriate that your child completes only every other question on a worksheet if it is being used to enhance a school curriculum.

What happens if there are any changes to the curriculum?

In the five countries in which 10ticks has overseen changes, all five have amended the curriculum within two years. The 2014 mathematics curriculum and the 2015 GCSE maths curriculum are both being fully implemented.
