Teacher Review for IXL

# This product has very little thought into the design of it, the questions are ridiculous and ask too much for the studen's age, some of the stuff even I don't know. The answers are very badly explained and only except one answer, no other equal values are

##### My Take
I don't like it at and I will never be tricked to use such a deceptive and horribly designed and programed website. The website is buggy and needs to have downtime a lot, they also have very poorly designed questions and assume too much about the ability of the students. They have very stupid answers, and they don't except anyother answer choice but their's. Let me give you a real example Explanation review 70% OFF! What is the sale price of a chocolate cheesecake originally priced at \$16.00? \$ You answered: \$ remember Percent (%) means ''rate per 100.'' For example, 70% means ''70 per hundred'' or 70 100 . solve Find the discount. The discount is 70% of the original price. Multiply to find 70% of \$16.00. discount = 70% 16.00 = 70 100 16.00 Write the percent as a fraction = 0.7 16.00 Write the fraction as a decimal = 11.2 Simplify The discount is \$11.20. This means the sale price will be \$11.20 less than the original price. Find the sale price. Subtract the discount from the original price. sale price = 16.00 – 11.20 = 4.80 Simplify The sale price is \$4.80. You can see how absurd their software and how shabby it is compared to sites like Khan Academy that actually teach you things before testing on them. This is solely used as a practice tool, but then the quesions and answers are subject to scrutiny and rage, frustration from the users, and there the breed a hate for all things math. This is not right, don't buy this scam of a website and fed the horrid, nefarious monster it has grown to be.
