A must have for common core!
I am an elementary teacher with a degree in digital teaching. I used this app last year in a traditional classroom to teach this concept. I used it whole class and small group. I am using this app again this year in an independent study grade K-12 school. I meet with my students one hour a week and this is a great way to kick start a lesson they will do at home. I gave a longer review on the linear equations app and I don't want to bore you with repeating myself. There is so much to this app I really can't cover it in a single review. In this review I will touch base on another comment I read for another app. The reviewer said they wished the app had more questions on the quiz for variety. I myself am okay with just the 10 as there is so much to do in this app the student using it will definitely have a better understanding of the concept after using the app. The lessons themselves run page by page so at anytime you can go back and review. It also has a replay button for the audio and visual components of the lessons. Also the markers and eraser I liked when I used this app whole class as I could literally "draw" attention to something on the lesson. Or write notes and draw models on the lesson. When I use the app I give very basic instructions going full blown common core. Less is better when it comes to using apps from this publisher because it teaches the students to think. Once they have figured out what to do all the other apps require no directions from the teacher as the app does everything itself.
