How I Use It
I have used it Maths rotations after a short sharp lesson for reinforcement of previously learned concepts or for gauging understanding of new mathematical concepts.
My Take
At first I didn’t think that this was as good as what I was told by a colleague. It was glitchy for the students doing their pre- assessment. Mainly through beginning of the year connectivity issues. Once this was fixed my students were extremely engaged in using the product as they loved the game play. For them it was considered a game even though they had to answer mathematical questions. From a teacher view point, it is easy to set work and see progress of individual students. Assigned work can be differentiated which is very useful. Overall very helpful to engage students in in learning mathematical concepts.
