Great supplement for practice, not for direct instruction.

How I Use It
My classes use Khan Academy to practice, especially when some students are falling behind on a certain concept and other students are ahead. This website is very useful to differentiate instruction for varying levels of student learners! We even use Khan Academy for homework or extra practice before summative assessments.
My Take
I believe Khan Academy is an awesome tool in the classroom! When students fall behind in math class, they tend to have difficulty catching up and Khan Academy helps all of my students keep pace with the class. The only downside to Khan Academy is that the videos tend to be a little complicated and unclear, especially to those students who have missed multiple days in a row and fall behind. This website is much better utilized as a practice resource for students outside of the classroom!
