How I Use It
The kids love this site. I use it for the kids to practice basic math facts. You can set the grade levels for each student so that they can stay at their own level. There are many games that the students can play and compete against each other. It will mix up different math problems. The problem that I have had is that students will click answers without working out the problem. They can still stay competitive and ahead winning the game with guessing and getting the problem correct. There needs to be more of a time loss from getting the problem wrong.
My Take
Use only as a review for basic facts. I like that the kids can compete among the school/class. The kids like the different choices of the games. I do not like that students will click answers without working out the problem or knowing the correct answer. It doesn't give feedback of the correct answer if wrong.
