How I Use It
My children are assigned this instead of actual teacher taught work in the classroom - they are trying to learn math at home alone.
My Take
This is awful. If you miss one question it drops you ten points, but if you get one right you only get one point. That doesn't make sense. A kid that's frustrated already and doesn't understand isn't going to keep after it and actually learn something. 120 questions for an 8th grader is a bit ridiculous, especially when the set percentage is 90% and the teacher isn't actually teaching anything.
