How I Use It
I would use this product to build skills and practice throughout the year. Our school had friendly competition between classes and within the school to promote basic math skills.
My Take
Overall, this is a terrific way to engage students to practice basic math skills but the site provides an extensive amount of time devoted to selecting things for your avatar. Students with lower math skills may spend too long on the gaming aspect and little time polishing their skills.
