How I Use It
I have used this product in my resource room with special education students. It is a good app to help students build basic math skills. I generally let students use this app for 5-10 minutes at a time as a reward for completing math assignments.
My Take
Students really like this game because it is a fast paced arcade style game. Since the game moves fast, students really need to think quick in order to progress in the game. The repetition of problems help students to memorize their math facts. One way it could be improved is to provide tutorials if students are struggling in a certain area.
