How I Use It
Students were assigned time for sumdog as part of their technology class. THey could spend up to 30 minutes on the site. Unfortunately no data was given to should students improvement or not.
My Take
Students enjoyed the interaction at the same time practicing their basic math facts. Students also enjoyed creating their avatars and earning enough to purchase other items. Students commented on their levels as they changed. Students also worked harder when a contest for our area was being offered.
