I had been looking for a FREE online program that would help me get the kids to practice their math facts daily and a way to track their progress and I stumbled upon XtraMath.org.
We just started using it this month and most of the kids are doing well with it.
You can set up a teacher/parent account to manage your students (kids).
Each child gets their own account/login.
I really like the program because there are many ways to see a child's progress.
- There is a table that shows, by color, which facts have been mastered, and which are close to being mastered.
- You can also see a graph of day to day progress.
- For each day of practice, you can see which facts were practiced and mastered.
It's a very helpful tool and a timesaver because I have wanted to make math facts practice a daily thing, but just haven't gotten around to it (being consistent); this makes it much easier.
Ideally, you can supplement this with online and offline games, flashcards, etc, but if you struggle, like me, to get things like that in, this is a great aid.
