How I Use It
I would not use this in a classroom. Too much time wasted, too much pressure to pay.
My Take
Huge time waster with intense marketing throughout play. I set this up with one student and in his first time playing, he did about 3 minutes of math and 12 minutes of completely wasted time on a convoluted and poorly written quest, or long "spell casting" breaks between problems. And he was prompted to upgrade to the paid version at least three times in 15 minutes, possibly more that he clicked through that I didn't even notice. I cannot believe this is approved for use in public schools.
