I like it and so do my little friends! Even though not all of them have "mastered" the facts at 100%, I can definitely tell the difference in their computation skills. I teach 2nd grade in an urban district, low SES, and not a lot of parental help. This is the first year I have used it and it is the first year that I notice that my students are NOT using their fingers to add!!! We are doing addition with regrouping and they get through the problems in no time at all.

In the past, I have used Rocket Math, which I really liked. However, it used lots and lots of paper, took time out of the math lesson, had to be monitored and well organized, and some students never took it seriously. XtraMath integrates technology which most kids like and is totally independently run. Once I enter the names all I have to do is check their progress. Plus, kids can work on it at home. (most of mine do not have internet access, though)
