This is a product that has been around for a long time.  I almost didn’t review it because of that, but then I was talking to a few teachers who didn’t know that it has a whole bunch of free aspects to it and so I thought I'm doing a quick review to mention that.  IXL allows students to practice math, reading and writing skills through multiple-choice questions.  The more questions they answer the more points they earn and badges they receive.

Simple Uses?

In the end, though, this is a great supplement to your math curriculum for your high fliers who are happy doing math or answering reading and writing questions just for the joy of getting questions right.  It’s also a great resource to point parents to who are looking for something to support their kids from home.  And, I’ll be honest, you can’t find a better-priced program out there.

Do I Plan To Use It?

Already do!

Lots of the questions and activities are free but if you’d like to get student accounts to track progress and see what they are working on you will have to get a quote based on the number of student accounts you want.
