How I Use It
I used IXL on laptops or iPads as one of my math centers in my math classes, almost daily. The rotation allowed for spiral review, remediation of skills, or a challenge to the more advanced students.
Towards the end of the year, I would pick the most missed topics from county benchmarks and unit tests in order to prepare for the end of year state assessments.
I like alignment it provides to my state's standards. VA is not a common core state, and aligned resources are harder to find.
