How I Use It
I used this math site as both review and practice for students who were struggling with certain math concepts as well as enrichment for those students who wanted to move forward and explore new concepts. Students enjoyed and look forward to working on IXL. The lessons are very user friendly. In depth solutions are provided for wrong answers. Rewards for problems answered are immediate. The weakest point in the program is not redirecting students to do follow up problems to insure mastery.
My Take
I feel IXL Math helps children reinforce critical skills necessary to build a solid foundation in learning math. It is very easy to set up, user friendly for the students, and graphically pleasant to work with.
