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.

How I Use It

I use this product as a reward and when some students have completed assignments, but others are still working.
