Good to use as a reward because it's still educational

How I Use It
I actually allow my students to access this website as a reward. I like that they can play different math/strategy games and it just seems like fun to them. They practice skills they are learning in math class and have no idea they are still learning during reward time.
My Take
I don't think this site should be used as a primary teaching tool. It's too easy for the kids to jump around from game to game. It's a great tool to use as a reward, or to have students practice their skills after a lesson is taught.
