I thought this was a great program at first, but the short time limits started to really frustrate my child. I need to look into adjusting the timer, I didn't realize that I could do that. I do recommend this program with a warning about the quick time limits.

Xtramath has been a fantastic way for my kids to master their math facts. I especially like the fact that parents/teachers can choose a delayed 6 second program versus the normal 3 second program for students who would beneifit from having more time to type in the answer. My kids like to see the progress they make and also like the positive affirmation given by Xtramath.

Pros
keeps track of progress
Cons
typing in answers difficult for some kids, allows only 1 math function at a time (i.e., you can't work on subtraction until addition is mastered)
Do you recommend?
YES!

One of the first online programs all my children enjoyed using for learning their math facts. Takes only 5 mins a day.

I used this temporarily for my son and it was easy to use and he liked the interactive part but he got bored with it. He also had a problem with the timed portions and not knowing where the numbers were on the keyboard so it frustrated him.

I used this with my girls for math facts for awhile about a year ago. I like that it adapted to what facts they needed to practice so they weren't practicing only the facts they already knew. The girls got bored with it after awhile though. It is basically electronic flashcards. We use a different math fact program that they like better. I still think this is a good program and it is free!

It can take a while for your younger child to learn where the numbers are on the keyboard and thus their answers will be too late for the timed tests, but this improves with practice. I'm so thankful for this free math fact review.

My daughter is dyslexic so she has problems remembering math facts. We struggled for years trying to find ways for her to remember them. I stumbled upon this site in my searching. It was the answer for us. She does a table a day for each operation, she loves it because it is nice and short. I like getting the weekly progress reports to check her progress.

Pros
Daily practice takes 15 minutes or less. I can get reports of how often each child logged in and practiced and what their results were.
Cons
The time limit for timed speed drills is not adjustable. So the first could of weeks, my kids were slower as they learned to use the number keypad to type their answers.
Do you recommend?
YES! It's a great way to continuously practice math facts. And it's FREE!
