How I Use It
Brain Pop isn't just movies anymore! If you are lucky enough to have a school account, there are so many new ways to use this site with your students! There are plenty of math games that adapt to the students while they are playing, and doesn't just reinforce concepts, but teach them as well. There are sorting activities that help you assess what your students can do and understand with math concepts, and it can all be set up for individual or group use.
My Take
Brain Pop has developed into such a fantastic educational tool for all subjects, including math. You need a school account to access all the features, which is really up to your principal. If you have an account, I implore you to sit down and play with the features, because the whole site is amazing.
