How I Use It
I use it during my math resource periods. I create centers and students use it at a center on the iPads. It only takes about 10 minutes so it is good for a quick activity. The only downside is that for some kids I wish I could skip the addition part and go right to multiplication facts practice.
My Take
Sometimes students don't like that it is timed because they are not focused and have a hard time beating the clock. Others really love the challenge though and enjoy the competition. They also like that they can see their scores and track their own progress.
