Guided Practice

Students enjoy using the interactive math lessons because their math practice time feels like a fun game. Whenever a student answers a question correctly, an animated character on the screen will do a funny trick or dance around cheerfully. Phrases of positive reinforcement appear on the screen for a correct answer as well.

An incorrect answer will bring up a detailed explanation page with an easy-to-read graphic depicting how to obtain the correct answer to the question. This feature helps students learn from their mistakes as they progress through the lesson.

If a student becomes "stuck" and needs a little push in the right direction, he or she can click the "Hint" icon on the lower left hand corner of the screen. A box will pop up containing a clue that will help the student solve the problem correctly. The teacher or parent can turn the hint feature on or off at will.
