The Racing Post software helps children understand concepts like causes and effects, cause and effect, probability, trends, and relationships among variables. The goal of this software is for children to have an easier time comprehending statistical and logical thinking skills so they can learn to analyze data and make a more informed decision in the classroom. The Racing Post classifies, grades, discusses, explains and demonstrates how trends occur in a statistical environment and applies these findings to real-life decisions. The class also works with students to identify areas that need improvement and helps them to think logically about what would happen if they fail. These lessons are fun for children because they help them use basic skills like counting, subtraction, percentages and graphs.
The RACER Software teaches students how to interpret results of several open-ended questions based on real-life situations and real world data. This software gives students the "gut feel" for a particular question by suggesting an answer choice based on their prior knowledge and understanding of the topic. The software also teaches students how to answer correctly in a short period of time, while explaining why the answer is correct in a clear and concise way. This approach teaches children to become better problem solvers and helps them formulate and develop new answers when faced with an unknown or ambiguous question.
With the Racing Post software, your child can learn to express their ideas and concepts in a clear and concise way, which is critical for problem-solving skills. When they see and hear you make an explanation, they are more likely to ask follow-up questions and engage in more thoughtful discussions. They will also enjoy the interactive parts of the software such as the user-friendly drawing tool and the child-friendly answering features. The software is also great because it can be used by multiple children at once, so you don't have to wait until a child goes to school to teach them this valuable lesson.
