We are getting to pilot the program First In Math. Any tips and/or suggestions on this program would be appreciated.

The key is to get the usernames in the hands of the students as quickly
as possible and get them to log in and explore. Focus their attention
on earning lots of stickers to be among top schools in the Rankings. This friendly
Competition component drives them to do more math but willingly and excitedly.
If you click on the 'winners circle' on your teacher home page, you can announce the Player of the Day, Team of the Week and so on and motivate them without losing
much time.
Regarding skills, focus students on completing the fact fluency modules, which are
Gyms and Just the Facts. You can use the word problems module, Know and Show, to solve within the classroom on the whiteboard or use a projector. Similarly,
the Interactive Common Core Correlations link is useful to click on the standard that you are working on, and practice the games during whole classroom instruction.
You can peruse the Preview link at the top of the Teacher Homepage to
Sample any module at any level. Hope this helps. Your kids will love this form of practice so much- it beats traditional worksheets.

one of my concerns is i don't see where i can track how well they are doing. all i see is that they completed certain modules like Know and Show Get a Clue. i would like to know what percentage they got correct when completing these. i don't see much data incorporated except for the Just the Facts part.
