Every student at ESTLA receives a username and login to participate in a school-wide online mathematics competition called First in Math (FIM). Students can earn points for their team by completing online challenges. This friendly competition helps students become motivated and energized to sustain accelerated effort over time in mathematics. FIM modules are designed to reinforce mastery of basic facts, decimals, fractions, integers, exponents,variables and order of operations. Early introduction of these concepts leads to enthusiasm and algebra readiness. FIM is available 24/7, from school, home, or public library.
