How I Use It
I use MobyMax during tutoring. It allows me to work with a small group of students on a particular skill while I have other students using MobyMax to build math skills that they are struggling with. Each student starts off taking a skills assessment. MobyMax then gives them an over all grade level of mastery. The site then puts together a plan for each child based on skills that they have shown to be weak. For students who are struggling with their math facts there is also a section where they can practice those. Students like that they earn game time. Teachers can set how much on task time it takes to earn game time and how much game time they earm.
My Take
MobyMax is a great tool that allows you to differentiate learning. Many students have gaps in there math background. Those gaps prevent them from seeing success. Using MobyMax has helped my students fill in gaps that they are missing. If you do not pay for the full site the reports are limited along with some of the student motivation pieces.
