How I Use It
I use TTM both to as an enhancement for parents that are asking for extra homework as well as for one of my daily math stations. Requiring students to work on this system at least once a week in class increases their interest in working TTM at home, during breaks and on weekends. I also love that they can continue getting practice over the summer!
I love this tool! Students love developing their avatars as they earn points from the lessons they work through. It is also a great product in that it allows me to see their work, their progress, and develop new pathways for struggling or advanced students. I also find that it is very much tied to CCSS so my students are working through deeper and more focused problems in highly interactive ways. Oh, and I LOVE the math games that show up in between several lessons. This is an additional "carrot" to keep my kids engaged in using TTM!
