How I Use It
As a tech coach in my schools, I have a hard time recommending this product to teachers for core math instruction or practice. While the students love the game, our division purchases other programs that have an equal amount of engagement and a ton more math practice.
My Take
We love that students are so engaged. Almost every student gets involved quickly and can begin working for great lengths of time. While the tasks aren't always easy, I have found that students are not getting enough practice time. With time constraints in the core content areas of our instruction, we have no time to waste on sites that don't give us the highest output. We only recommend this for teachers to use during inside recess or as an extension type of activity.
