General
How I Use It
I use this product as a reward and when some students have completed assignments, but others are still working.
My Take
I like that the students have to correctly answer math questions to gain points. I LOVE that it gives them hints to find the answer if they are stuck, and gives them the correct answer if they are wrong, so they get immediate feedback. I wouldn't use this as instruction, but it is great as an educational fast finisher, homework, or for practice. It is a real motivator for some reluctant students to get work done and it helps reinforce ideas. It adapts to the students' levels so everyone feels successful and wants to continue playing.
