IXL Math - Free Dynamic, Fun, Interactive Practice
IXL Math provides online, engaging math problems for students from Pre-K through 8th grade. You can access dozens of skills for Pre-K through 2 and more than 200 skills from grades 3-8. The ISL Math site provides links to state standards and the Common Core Standards. The site keeps it simple with an easy to navigate interface.
Although there is an available subscription to this site that tracks student progress and provides reports, all of the interactive skills practice I've shared are available free and without a log in.
This is a robust collection of examples that cover so much curriculum content. The other thing I like about the site is that when you get a wrong answer, you can click an explanation of the proper solution to the problem.
Here is an example from 5th grade fractions.
Check out IXL Math and see if it will help your students practice the skills you teach them.
Share your thoughts about this tool in the comments and pass the site on to a colleague.
