How I Use It
I use IXL for homework and for reinforcing skills recently taught. I really like the detailed reports IXL provides. They give me the ability to check student progress.
My Take
IXL is a great website for learning and practicing math skills at all levels. My school recently purchased a license and my class has used the website extensively. I use it for 2 primary purposes: to reinforce recently taught skills in a computer lab and for follow up homework. My students enjoy the skills and always strive to earn a score of 100 (skill mastered). They also enjoy earning badges as they progress through their 4th grade skills. After a few months, I wonder if they will tire of the repetition, but the practice is superb.
