My Take

DO NOT LET STUDENTS USE THIS WEBSITE!
Coolmath is an old website filled with malware and spyware. Students previously used this website on the school equipment and it caused 70 laptops to crash. Equipment invested with viruses must be completely wiped and reformatted. After multiple hours of work, the computers were still left with lagging issues and permanent damage.
In addition to a one way ticket to DIIT, your students will likely treat the site as a joke and retain very little, if any, mathematical content. The only reason students enjoy this website is because they see it as a game and a waste of class time.

How I Use It

This could be used as a supplemental resource for students who have completed assignments early.
Personally, I never use it because I value my sanity and equipment.
