For other students, I use this app as an intervention tool. The kids love the animations and earning coins, while I love being able to see their strengths and weaknesses in action without another worksheet!
I use the individual student reports to guide what I need to review and reteach my students. These reports can also guide my lesson planning to show when students are ready to advance to more complex math skills. Personally, I like the option to advance each student within the program as s/he is masters specific areas of mathematics. I like that it uses proper academic vocabulary and guides the students when they get stuck. Most of all the kids enjoy exploring and playing with the animals of the jungle. This allows them a break once in a while.
I feel that fun time should have a limit however and this would defiantly improve the program. Kids need structure and direction and if they are not redirected they will ...
