How I Use It
My students spend about 60 minutes per week on Happy Numbers. They might spend about 15 minutes daily at a math station, longer sessions 2-3 times per week.
My Take
I mainly use it as an independent math station that feels like having an assistant teacher for each student. Things I like: - Students log in easily and pick up right where they left off each time - Screens all look different, so there’s no direct competition or pressure to keep up with other students - It narrates any on-screen text (in English or Spanish) - Math growth is measurable (My daughter won Kangaroo Math competition) - Great reporting, I always know where my students have difficulties - Can easily reassign or exclude topics - Great product to keep the class quite and under control - Has child friendly interface Things I don't like: - While it's one of the most affordable math programs still you have to pay - Can get expensive for a large class - Lessons don't have printout materials - It's better for children who are behind (closing learning gaps) but not challenging enough for the best performers
