How I Use It
This product is used at our school in grades 3-5. Some teachers use it for homework, others use it for a small group technology/practice station during guided math. This product allows students to work with rigorous, challenging lessons on the students' grade level, while still supplementing lower level lessons where needed for mastery. Our school uses this product to motivate students to practice math at another level than superficial practice. Our students are engaged and love using their points to create avatars! We also run school-wide challenges to encourage participation and completion of lessons.
My Take
This is the only product I have seen that questions students in a way that determines mastery at a deep level. It is also the only product I have seen that engages all students at their level, while still providing on grade-level instruction. This product is differentiated for each student's needs and provides great feedback data for Response to Intervention. The level of supports available to students allows them to be successful independently and not require teacher or parent help, making it a great practice tool for learning stations and/or homework. The technical support available to administrators and teachers is out of this world!
