IXL's second-grade math module covers more than 200 specific skills in 24 categories, including estimation and rounding, data and graphs, and measurement. Teachers can easily find topics that align to specific Common Core standards or other grade-level appropriate topics. Teachers should know that very few of these activities teach concepts; rather, these drills offer practice and assessment, including helpful reports on kids' progress. Plan on teaching this material separately in class, as the program's explanations for wrong answers are somewhat superficial.

Some kids, however, will enjoy trying out new concepts and may learn best through trial and error. Let these students explore at their own pace. Using the program in this way, be sure to review progress reports to pinpoint areas for improvement, in the form of either in-class supplements or extra drills on the site (or Chrome app). Alternately, you might also use the drills as a quick, fun, and easy way to administer tests or quizzes, or to prepare kids for upcoming standardized tests.
