How I Use It
I used this is a math extension (intervention) class. It was used as the "curriculum". This product does not work as a curriculum as students grow tired of the lessons very quickly. It would work best to be used a short time each day or every other day.
My Take
I like this program, but I feel that students sometimes get frustrated with it. I am not able to assist with problems as it will believe the "student" knew the answer. Also, I feel that it is very repetitive and sometimes the students just learn the patterns vs learn the math. Once the pattern changes, they struggle until the learn the next pattern.
