How I Use It
I used the Khan Academy website for helping provide math intervention to individual students. Students are able to work at their own pace and on different levels. It is easy for me as the teacher to monitor individual results and plan instructional groups.
My Take
I am not that impressed with the instructional videos that are on the site, but the assessment piece is quite nice. The students can also used the site at home so their parents will also understand the math concepts being presented in class. I think they could do a little better about using the math strategies demanded by the Common Core State Standards.
