How I Use It
My students use this program for homework mainly but I also use it in class. Students love the competition aspect of it. They can't wait to get on to see if they can be at the top of their class. For homework, students have to complete an entire lesson to get homework credit.
I think the problems are very well thought out. The students have to have a great understanding of number sense and math vocabulary. Sometimes though when the students aren't familiar with the wording, or they don't know exactly what they are supposed to do they get frustrated. It's not always the concept but yet the wording of the problem. Also kids don't like to read all of the great teaching in the guided practice. I always have to remind them to read everything so they'll learn the concept.
