How I Use It
I especially use it in third grade math where we have students who are a little behind and need additional work on addition and subtraction while the class is really moving to multiplication and division facts. It allows each student to play the game at the settings that are best for them. Students are required to give us the first accuracy score that they receive during the game play portion of the class, so that everyone gets assessed. If they get a better score during the 15 minute session, then we take the higher score for the grade book.
My Take
Hyperblast is fun. It's a game that the kids always ask to play. It's the perfect balance between game and drill - enough game to get students through the drill portions.
