IXL .com offers a great program for Math! It helps teach students new concepts and them gives them plenty of practice to master each topic.
The Woodcrest Christian Math department has surveyed the topics offered by IXL.com at each Math level to identify the skills that should be mastered before entering Math 7, Pre-Algebra, or Algebra 1. After signing up for a particular course you will receive a login code and a list of modules to complete. Work through each module until you get a gold medal for that math topic in order to be prepared for your WCMS math class in the fall. Mrs. Quan will be getting weekly reports from IXL tracking your progress. Naturally, you could also do additional sections or go back to other levels if you are having trouble with a particular skill.
Math is about so much more than just numbers—and so is IXL! We approach each math concept from all angles, offering visual representations, word problems, interactive activities, and more. With an abundance of math problems for every learning style, students can’t help but build lasting skills and confidence.“My favorite feature of IXL is that if you get a question wrong IXL will tell you how to solve it and what you did wrong. Another thing I really enjoy is that IXL provides awards and progress reports showing how you do over time. I think these two things are very effective because they make the student feel like they are actually studying and not wasting time.” “As a parent, I love IXL. My son thinks it is another computer game. He loves the game board, with the stars and awards. What an incentive for the kids to look forward to!”
