Students spend more time messing with their avatar than doing actual math.

How I Use It
I may use this while meeting with my math groups, but students at their seat seem to be doing as little as possible.
My Take
I don't like that it is differentiated by student completion and scores and not assigned work by the teacher. Maybe there is a way to change this setting? The product seems best for teachers who are going to have all students on at the same time while she babysits that they are dong what they are supposed to be doing. LAME!
