This week’s Friday Finds features a fantastic resource to supplement any math curriculum, XtraMath!
XtraMath started in the fall of 2007 when David Jeschke, a computer programmer, volunteered at a local elementary school and recognized the need for an individualized math practice program. XtraMath spread rapidly to other classrooms by word of mouth and the program continues to evolve to meet the needs of the students, teachers, and parents…XtraMath is a Seattle 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to math achievement for all. Our goal is to develop effective, efficient, adaptive and intrinsically rewarding supplemental math activities.
XtraMath is a “math fact fluency program” designed to help students master basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts, which are the essential building blocks of a child’s mathematical education. Once registered with this FREE resource, your students can do extra math drills just a few minutes each day to improve their knowledge base and to recall basic facts quickly. This sort of practice will ready them for more advanced levels of math.

XtraMath can be utilized by parents in the home (either homeschooling or just helping their kids strengthen their skills) or by teachers in the classroom. The program keeps track of each student’s progress and emails weekly reports to the parent/teacher, and more detailed reports can be accessed online at any time. You can sign up for FREE today at xtramath.org or download the app to your iPhone for $4.99.
My kids have been using XtraMath for about a month now, and I’m already seeing progress with both!
