We designed I Know It to provide engaging math practice for elementary-aged students. Students love the bright, engaging website pages and math lessons. Animated cartoon characters react with a cute dance or silly display when children answer a question correctly. Students get the sense that they are playing a fun, yet challenging, math game.
Here are some notable features that set I Know It math lessons apart: a score-tracker on the right-hand side of the screen helps students keep track of how many questions they've answered correctly so far. A progress tracker above that shows students how many questions they've answered in the lesson so far. Students can click on the “hint” button in the lower-left corner of their screen for a relevant pictorial or written clue that will help them get the correct answer. If students answer incorrectly, a detailed explanation page appears, helping them understand, step-by-step, how the problem should have been solved, so they can get it right the next time.
Teachers of ESL/ELL students, or students who excel at auditory learning, will appreciate the read-aloud option included in each math lesson. When students click on the speaker icon on their screen, the question will be read aloud to them in a clear voice.
