How I Use It
I use this website as a supplimental tool for vocabulary practice and understanding. Students have access to the website from home to support practice and homework. This website does not work at all on the iPad unfortunately, so we do not use this in the classroom.
My Take
If you can get beyond the colors and fonts used on the website, the animations for the math content is great. I teach Deaf and Hard of Hearing students who struggle with vocabulary concepts in math. This dictionary makes it much more comprehensible and visual for them. Students with vision disorders, seizures or color blindness should not attempt. The multitude of colors used sometimes takes away from the greatness of the interactive capabilities of the website.
