Overview: Sparx is a learning platform specifically for maths. All students in years 7-11 are set maths homework each week on this platform. The programme is an invaluable resource in helping students to practise the skills they are currently learning in lesson (compulsory homework). It also creates opportunities for them to revisit prior learning, ensuring they can fluently recall skills the learning earlier in the term or year. It can respond to what students show they can master and what they are finding more difficult. It will set future questions on the skills students found more difficult (target homework) enabling them to have regular opportunities to practise and master these skills. Students are expected to complete the compulsory and target homework each week.
