Teacher Review for MATHia

It's not what the students learn, it's HOW the students learn.

My Take
All the reviews about this platform are written by teachers and educators who aren't actually assigned to the workspaces. As a student who has used different online math platforms such as Khan Academy / Tenmarks, Mathia is NOT IT, and this is from not just me, but my peers as well. Mathia repeats it's lessons endlessly without keeping track of the students ACTUAL level of understanding. As teachers, we all know that different students have different methods of learning. Mathia just causes frustration in many students pushing them through question after question after question without helping them genuinely learn. My peers actually pay each other to finish their mathia for the week, and you don't know how much money you can make off doing another student's mathia. The students try their best to finish one workspace, but the disappointment that flows through your body after hitting one wrong button or making one small mistake and watching the progress bar drop, instantly creates anxiety and frustration. TEACHERS PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR STUDENTS. WHY ARE YOU A TEACHER IF YOU CAN'T TAKE CARE OF YOUR STUDENTS MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY WITHOUT GIVING THEM THE PROPER TOOLS AND ENVIRONMENT TO LEARN FOR THEIR FUTURE.
