How I Use It
ST Math: K-5 makes for a great tool in the elementary classroom for teaching math. It can be assigned to the students for individual practice after lessons on the skill or simply done in front of the class for entire class instruction with a projection device. Students can see the mathematical concepts through the visual representations of the games which aids in their understanding.
My Take
Visual manipulatives for students to use to increase their skills in mathematics. The games are fun for students and the visuals of the games are attractive. There is a clear lack of directions for students when playing the games, therefore, it can become frustrating if they are unable to figure out what they are supposed to be doing. Teachers are provided with fantastic information from the student data that can then be used to help guide further instruction in the classroom. Games are also provided for upper level grades, but they are still in the style of the elementary games and may seem very juvenile for older students.
