Zero stars if I could

My daughter loved math before having to use this app for school. Now she doesn't even want to do her math homework which she used to enjoy. I pray the makers of this program do not actually have children. If they do they should be ashamed of themselves for thinking phrases like "you know you want to be better and faster" and "don't worry about understanding, just memorize it" should ever be told to 5 and 6 yr olds. I was sitting with my daughter during the first time she used this app and watched as she showed significant anxiety with the insane emphasis on timing. I've never seen her respond that way to anything before. Now I don't think my kid should be shielded from reality. I get that she will be timed in school. And I don't think every kid should be constantly told how great they are or get prizes for their work. That's not life. But why can't a first grader be able to enjoy math? This app takes the opposite approach and boldly (and blandly) introduces mature academic measures of fast vs slow and good vs bad into very young minds. My husband is an elementary math teacher this app made him disgusted. He feels it's another example of trying to teach to standardized tests. If this is in fact true, congratulations Xtra Math, you've helped our education system stoop to a new low.

My kids ask to do their math everyday now

I almost didn't buy this app after reading a lot of the negative reviews. There IS timed math on this app and it did really stress my kids out. I had talks with them about how they need to practice working under pressure, because there are lots of times in life where you have deadlines and you have to remain calm, or you will screw up...not to mention timed math tests. I also told them that this is the perfect way to practice working under pressure because this app really doesn't do anything. It's not for a grade, just for practice.

After our talk, my kids turned a new leaf and learned how to work calmly while having a timer. They now love the app and want to learn what comes next after they complete a program. There also is a setting where you can turn off the timer, but I think it's good for my kids and we keep it on.

In summary, we love it and it's helped my kids learn life skills and not just math.

Great way to track multiple children

We love this simple straight-forward approach to math facts! I have a kindergartner, 1st grader, 4th grader, and 5th grader. They logon everyday for about 7-10 minutes for practice. As soon as they master one level, they move to the next. I can easily login and see if they have done their work and monitor their progress. My kids like that they can get on the app and get it done quickly. Now that we have been actively using the app for a month I’m seeing their school work improve and their simple mistakes decrease. I can’t believe the app was only $5. I wish they had an one for sight words!
