How I Use It
Students use it to practice their math skills. Students choose their grade level and can then practice different common core standards. If students is not at grade level they can go back and work at specific skills that they need to build up on in order to be ready for their grade level. Students do this in the classroom for about 15 minutes and then they do it for homework for about 20 minutes.
My Take
I really enjoyed this because students practice at their own pace or level. They enjoy using it and seeing their progress. It will give them incentives in order to get them practicing math everyday. The only down fall is that you can try it for free, but if you like it then you have to pay for it once the free trial is over.
