Interactive Game-Like Learning
As with any other program, Math Chimp comes with its own set of improvements needed. Although the program is organized in a sequential, easy to follow manner, a negative attribute would include its lack of variety within each Common Core.

Great potential, fantastic looking, needs to get better, but can still be useful.
This is a great looking website that attempts to be a one stop shop for games, videos, worksheets and more for grades 1-8. It is aligned to the common core standards, which is nice, but still needs a lot of work. At first glance, I got real excited at the setup and thought it would be a fantastic website. Once you start clicking on the links, you find that it is not always the case. I found that a good number of the video links were either empty or the link was broken. The excitement was quickly replaced with sadness.

There are places for ratings but I have not seen any done yet. The website is still set up nice and has the potential to be a great place to easily find games, videos, and worksheets classified by grade, common core topics, and broken down further into each individual standard. I suggest checking it out and bookmarking it to come back to occasionally to see if it has improved. I am hoping that it does.Continue reading
