Addicting math games with little to offer for deeper understanding.

Community Review for Sumdog
I dont have a high over all opinion of this product. It loses its educational value after the 2nd grade for average math learners. The best way to describe its inadequacies is that it does not offer any opportunity for deeper understanding of the content. Students enjoyed it, but they enjoyed the game playing and avatar alterations more than the math content.
How I Use It
Because I am an instructional coach I saw it used as stations in a math class. It is an ok platform to use for math facts, but again it lacks in the developmental applied math skills that are students are lacking. For free, its not bad, but there are some better websites out there, unfortunately they come with a subscription.
