How I Use It
I used this for extra practice on a math topic. It was nice because it allowed the students the opportunity to fully master a concept. It was very frustrating for students who were not quite at mastery level because they kept getting question after question with no real end in sight.
My Take
In the future, I would like to have students work independently on one topic that they were weakest in for a certain unit. This could be done over the course of the unit, or as a review day. I would also like to use this as a way for parents to get involved in their child's education. Most parents say by the time their child reaches high school math, they are unable to help them with their math. Khan Academy is a great way for students to get additional understanding and practice without falling behind in class!
