How I Use It
I use this product every single day in all of my classes. For math, content is broken down into each CCSS domain for students to practice. Before they can practice in any domain, they take a "diagnostic", which places them at the appropriate level within the domain, regardless of grade level. Therefore, students are able to practice topics within a domain from any prior grade for re-teaching and review, OR move ahead of the rest of their classmates for enrichment! It is the perfect way to individualize learning. We use the fact practice section daily as a warmup at the beginning of class, and students practice within the domain at the end of each class to advance in their own learning. We also created a "coin club" to motivate students to move throughout the levels!
I have honestly never loved an ed-tech product the way that I love FrontRow. I love how engaged my students are (in gathering coins, going to the piggy store, and moving through domains and levels), the "watch a video" hints so students can become independent problem solvers, the variety of question types, the higher-level thinking it requires, and especially, how personalized it makes learning. The reports are ones that I feel confident presenting in 504 and IEP meetings to show growth and other data, and it even tells students who they can ask for help if they need it. It truly is the most adaptive and engaging math ed-tech tool I have ever used.
