How I Use It
I tried to use it as a resource for homework, further exploration, and flipped classroom but after testing it myself, I decided there were other tried and true sites to use instead. Although Khan Academy, Ten Marks, and Learn Zillions may not look as engaging and fun, they are far more effective and supportive.
My Take
The site has high aspirations to help students who struggle with or are turned off by math. They took key concepts and created engaging animations and real world application videos to explain them. However, one of the videos has been taken down by YouTube for copyright violation. And a couple of the games, crash after the first round.
