How I Use It
I didn't specifically use this product in the classroom but my colleague did and showed me how it works so that I can use it in the future. What I liked about this site is that it allows the students to improve their math fluency skills. It covers all math levels up until Algebra 1. Her students enjoyed the feeling of success that they received when they did well and it helped to reinforce their confidence in an area they were struggling in. It's also user friendly and I really liked how I could see what the students were struggling with. This will be helpful when I use it so I can tailor my lessons to what is needed by the students.
My Take
Overall I thought this was a great product. I liked how it gave the students praise for correct answers building their confidence in that area. It also helped them understand what they did wrong by showing them how to correctly compute the problem. This site would be great as a review or skill builder. It definitely needs to be done after a lesson has been taught because they students need that prior knowledge before beginning this site. This site also allows for teachers to see how their students are doing so they need to know if they need to go back and re-teach a lesson or speed something up because they are whizzing through it. Overall it's a great tool and I would use it in my classroom.
