It is a program for math fact practice only (x,+, -, /), not problem solving or other skills practice.

I have definitely seen improvement in my students' fact skills. There is a bit of management to it, though. I check their progress regularly, seeing who is not mastering and who is not practicing enough.

I made a schedule that the students follow. I have 2 computers that they can use in the morning. We have arrival time spanning about 40 minutes before the bell rings, so that is their FM time. This year we will also have 2 loads of buses, so some students will be scheduled after school.

If it's made a priority and managed, it can be very helpful! If the students already know their facts, you might want to focus more on the students who really need the practice.

(If you want to see an example of my schedule, just let me know and I'll attach it.)
