This tool would be great for targeted practice. Start with the Skill Builder mode and guide kids through the steps of creating a worksheet, making sure they choose the correct grade level and appropriate Common Core domains. For example, if you want kids to practice a mix of skills related to fourth-grade geometry and fractions, have kids choose grade 4, and then Numbers and Operations – Fractions and Geometry.

The app provides two modes of play: Math Challenge and Skill Builder. In Math Challenge, kids answer multiple-choice questions as they compete in timed grade-level challenges. They begin with an easy level and work their way through all five levels to the Super Nerd level. Kids' scores, based on correct answers and answer speed, are recorded on their devices, so they can compete with other kids in their class who work on the same challenges. Scores can also be shared in the Game Center, allowing kids to compete with other kids around the world. Game Center restrictions can be set on kids' devices; however, caution should always be used when sharing information through a third-party program.

In Skill Builder mode, kids can create customizable worksheets that include up to five Common Core domain skills. Each worksheet has 50 questions; kids earn points for correct answers and for special achievements, such as questions answered correctly in a sequence or super-fast answers.

With more than 2,500 problems covering grades 4 through 7, Math Champ Challenge - School Edition is an excellent, well-designed digital enrichment tool. The customizable Skill Builder mode, with its automated program that adapts to each user's ability, makes it easy for kids to get targeted practice. Kids are encouraged to revise and continue practicing, and teachers can identify problem areas. This provides a solid framework for learning support and progression. Students can also use the Skill Builder practice area, with its open-ended questions, as a study tool.
