Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I love this!! My, just barely turned 5 years old, daughter just graduated the first level for addition - thanks to this app!!!!
My daughter has used this app for three weeks and she appears to do worse every time. The pressure and stress of time pushes her to anxiety. To a 3rd grader who is not use to even using a calculator, the inverted number pad causes delays in response as she spends time looking for the numbers that are not in their natural order as she knows them. Second, while understanding the importance of rapid recall of math facts, a little more time should be given before an answer is marked wrong. Third, the racing the teacher aspect places more pressure as the guy in the side makes motions of “why don’t you know this” when an incorrect answer is given. There is a lot of improvements needed on this app and there should be other activities to gauge progress than repeated timed stressful testing. Learning should be fun, not stressful. While I am leaving a comment here that hopefully will spark more development of this app, I will also be commenting to my daughters school to discourage any further use of this app. This is a huge confidence deflator.
It’s adaptive and this helps kids be comfortable while they learn. It’s not too hard and not too easy. Also, there are no unnecessary taps, great UI.
This is a great app to help your child remember their math equations. No it is not easy, and it can take some children a lot of time to get good at it. But when they are done they will have a better memory and handle on their math.
I typically don’t write reviews but feel compelled to in this case. Our daughter (now 9 years old and a rising 4th grader) was directed to this app in 2nd grade through her school teacher. In the beginning it was a chore for her. Parents and children should know that progress is incremental and it takes a while to finish each unit. But my daughter persisted and when she saw she was close to completing the addition unit, she became independently motivated to sign in each day and was delighted to get her achievement certificate at the end. A similar pattern has continued since then: she started off slowly in the subtraction and multiplication units, somewhat daunted by the task of filling in all her green squares, but then after a few months of sporadic use, she saw she was near the end and powered through in the last month. Seeing the graphs of her progress provided her with visual confirmation that she was improving. And conversely, she could see in the months when she didn’t practice that her score was flatlining. She just received her multiplication certificate yesterday (I’ve printed them out and she has hung them proudly above her bedside table) and has already started the division unit. This is an excellent resource, not just for getting kids to learn basic math facts, but as other reviewers have noted, in teaching them the value of persistence and the old adage that practice makes perfect. Your child won’t of course learn the concept of multiplication, division, etc. but if they grasp those concepts elsewhere (in class or at home) this provides them with superb exercises to sharpen their mathematical abilities. The exercises can be grueling, especially at the beginning, but all of them can be completed in less than 10 minutes. Think of the process as comparable to achieving physical fitness, which similarly requires effort and some pain. I think of Xtra Math doing the same thing for mental fitness. And at no charge! A big thanks to the developers of this app for providing such a superb tool for children.
I thought when I started this at school that this was terrible, but when u give it a chance, you feel accomplished. I was the first girl to get to division. Whoever doesn't like it, try again!
Our school brought xtramath to us and she learned her basic math. When my next child came, the school changed their progam but we were so happy with xtramath, we got the xtramath for him separately. Now he has learned his basic math skills. This is not a game, it is homework, so sometimes we have to push a little, but they love the completion certificates! We love this app and constantly recommend it, even back to our teachers who agree with us! It's a free app but now I need to send some thank you money!
It dose not teach me a lot . Some reasons I don’ like it because there is no sound . When you beat it you don’ get any thing that that really makes me want to not keep going. You just do a problem like ten times . Some sesgeoins are each ten times you get 5 🙂 you get game five minutes of game time . The games can be math games like trivia runing games like a MARIO like but each level you beat you get to do a math. Each Time you do race the teacher you get 5 🙂 you get 5 minuets. I will give it a 1🌠/5 because of its porgaming .
This app is very hard to sign into!!! This is one of the worst math apps I have ever used. This makes Me want to rip my hair out. I lose my mind after using this app every day! This is a horrid way to practice your facts! If you just accidentally press a number it ruins your whole progress quiz. I WASTED 5 HARD EARED DOLLARS ON THIS MONSTROSITY!!!!! ZERO STAR RATING! Also, the guy makes MEAN looks at you. THIS APP IS WAY WAY WAY WAY TO EXPENSIVE TO BUY! Don’t waste your money!
The idea of the app is good and it does help sometimes. BUT 90% of the time I’m wrong it’s 1. The anxiety from having to awnser within (3 seconds???) or 2. The buttons are annoyingly small. It really doesn’t help too much considering I still have a D in math.
Should let you choose to do the progress quiz or race the teacher
It’s ok but some ups and downs. 1)it good with basic stuff but the order of the sections, this leads into the next thing. 2)maybe you should put the placement test at the end, just a suggestion Otherwise it’s ok regardless on what my classmates tell me. Thanks for reading. (And the people who made this.
First of all, I had to buy this app AND i THOUGHT that this would be AWESOME, apparently, i saw NO pause button which made it HARDER because when you have tgt the bathroom, you have to b r i n g your iPad into the bathroom and do what u have to do. Like ARE U SERIOUS or what? So update and put a pause button PLZ, i dont care where ever u put it. Second, should you NOT BE SO SENSITIVE because if i mess up, the box turns yellow or gray! So make on update and fix these fixes u can fix, ok?
I hate math and this app made me life HORRIBLE
The game glitches and also the numbers are to small so you always miss the keys if I said all the problems it would take forever so don’t buy it
I love this game but I just hate the way on race the teacher because there’s no timer and there’s only a timer in the progress one so can you do a timer on racing the teacher?
My grandson uses this for school. As a retired educator, I can see where a classroom might see this as beneficial. You can assess many children in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, this does not help all children. My grandson knows his addition facts very well. He has been able to write answers to 100 addition facts in well under three minutes. His fingers do not hit the keypad accurately thus recording many incorrect answers. Also, when using a keypad, your sense of touch feels the same in your brain for a 3, for example, as a 7. When you are physically writing the numbers, these facts will be recorded to your long term memory much more efficiently. This is his seventh month working with your addition app and he has yet to ‘pass’ to subtraction. Unfortunately, his classroom doesn’t utilize multiple forms of assessment. The timing factor does not work well for him either. If this method works well for your child, great. Don’t continue if it’s not working for you though.
I’ve done XtraMath both in computer and tablet and it’s just great even when the reviews are bad I feel like it’s just good and a good place to start math and can you fix the math overview so you can do math up to down and left to right or I need to shook my tablet??????
I'm force to use this dumb app it doe not help at all. Race the teacher gives me no time to figure out the problem. IT MAKES ME HATE MATH MORE!!!! And it is creepy that the teachers can see how good your doing. When she told my mom about the app my mom did not make me do it and the teacher found out and told my mom again then my mom made me do it.
Please add more minutes to the racing the teacher part because if you want to have people take time to think it’s to fast what is it could you please add MORE SECONDS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE it’s just too frustrating Thanks. If you guys can Thank you
We have used Xtra Math for 3 kids and it has been a wonderful resource. Just used the app for the first time and it we will quite useful. We appreciate the ability to customize times and programs for each student's needs.
Well I like this platform, and I can understand why this is a thing but sometimes it makes me fell stupid and the worst in my class but that is not true😜! plus in race the teacher I answer then 1 millisecond it tells me in wrong! I prefer this app but you’re kid will complain a lot!!!! P.S I do love it 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀👍🏻
This app has taught me a lot of stuff that is now easy for me. In 3rd grade, I was really struggling with my math because, it was all multiplication and division. I was at a public school in 2nd and we were just starting to learn about multiplying. We didn’t learn division yet, and then I changed to a private Montessori school. And they were already doing like 4th and 5th grade math, so of course I was clueless!! But I was glad to get outta that public school. Now, I’m in a public school in 4th grade, and my teacher made us do XtraMath. And curious little me was wondering, “What is XtraMath?!” So, I tried it, I hated it. I didn’t realize that slowly over time, I was getting better multiplication!! And one day, I passed! I was so unbelievably happy and proud of myself!! Then I started division, I hated it, but eventually I got better and passed! Now I’m on the faster multiplication and I’m close to passing!! So thank you so much XtraMath for changing my life for the better! So anyway, long story short, BUY this app! It helps your child with adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division. It may not be that fun, but it’s worth it!! So buy this app for your kid, it totally works, I promise! Have a good day! 🤗🤗🤗
This is a great app for math but, the keypad doesn’t make very much sense. I would DEFINITELY rate 5 stars but that is the 1 problem. It is because I use it side to side like a computer keyboard. If you could please add a setting were you can use it like a computer keyboard. Can I please get a response and can you please add that?
Thank you very for creating this tool. My son is currently in 5th grade and it helps him a lot with speed in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This tool was recommended by his teacher and I appreciate him for it.
I hate xtra math so much because every time I do a bad session it bumps down my number my teacher thinks everyone in my class loves Xtra math but we don’t because of that reason and it says you don’t know the problem but you do I used to love math but now I hate math all because of xtra math and now I think I am not good enough at math all because of xtra math!!
Very good app when doing division in school. This app really helped me but now my teacher still makes me do it and this app is helpless. Doesn't even make sense, why do you get a second extra on race the teacher than the progress quiz?!?! Not horrible but not good either.
This theacher is very smug when you get something incorrect. And if you don’t even get 1 incorrect, YOU STILL HAVE NOT COMPLETED IT!!!!!😡😡😡 This is disappointing. Even my MOM hates it because it only tests you on how fast you can TYPE. PLZ change or delete this game👎👎👎👎
best math game ever!!!
This app would not be good for learning math, but for getting faster it is great. The lessons are short, so my daughter doesn't mind doing it once or twice a day and I have definitely seen an improvement in her speed. CONS: I wish the number key pad was a little larger. Sometimes she accidentally pushes the wrong number because of the key size. It can be discouraging. In the beat the teacher rounds she can become frustrated because it doesn't give much time to answer. She ends up frazzled quite a bit. All in all, it does a decent job though.
MY TEACHER MAKES ME PLAY THIS DUMB MATH GAME!!!THIS GAME MAKES ME SAD ,CRY,ANGRY,MAD,AND HATE MATH NOW!!!!!
This is horrible. I don’t think people RACE THEIR TEACHER!! It gives me stress. It gets more stressful when they make you do more sessions. I think this is a bad app. IT DESERVES 0 STARS! I have so many reasons but why would I enjoy talking about XtraMath?
This app had made math not fun I used to love it until this came along I hope my school banes it.WORST GAME EVER MADE!!!!
Xtramath is the worst teaching tool on the planet! It's stressful, and it makes me hate math! I used to love math but now I can't stand it because it reminds me of this awful app. My teacher forces us to this dumb game four nights a week and I'm so sick of it. Some suggestions to the developers (if they're even reading this) 1.) put the progress test at the end so students can practice their math first 2.) update the overall design (the app itself looks wicked ugly) 3.) add at least a half of a second more on the practice rounds at the end because I personally (and apparently a lot of other reviewers) find it very stressful I hope this review deters you from spending your hard earned money on this disgusting app.
I almost didn't buy this app after reading a lot of the negative reviews. There IS timed math on this app and it did really stress my kids out. I had talks with them about how they need to practice working under pressure, because there are lots of times in life where you have deadlines and you have to remain calm, or you will screw up...not to mention timed math tests. I also told them that this is the perfect way to practice working under pressure because this app really doesn't do anything. It's not for a grade, just for practice. After our talk, my kids turned a new leaf and learned how to work calmly while having a timer. They now love the app and want to learn what comes next after they complete a program. There also is a setting where you can turn off the timer, but I think it's good for my kids and we keep it on. In summary, we love it and it's helped my kids learn life skills and not just math.
Why am I feeling as if I’m falling apart?! Why am I feeling as if I’m crying?! Why am I feeling as if I’m tortured and rushed?! Why is that I’m throwing stuff around?! Why.. IS THIS AN APP? Now poof, I have a headache now.
I think this app is great! But the amount of time you get before you lose a chance to get a smiley face... is kinda too fast for some kids. My child likes that. But I think you should be able to choose ( as a parent or teacher ) how much time you get. Because some kids get anxiety. But my kid finds it challenging and she likes that. Great app
This is one of the most destructive programs for math I have ever seen. As a retired teacher and math teacher of grades K-2 I was horrified to watch my granddaughter completely fall apart using this app. And she is s good student. If you want to destroy children keep making them use this pressure ridden torture with first grade students.
This helps my child learn math in a split second! First she didn’t want to do math and when we found XtraMath it changed her life!!!!!🤯 I only recommend this app for people who don’t give up. My daughter used to hate this app but now she is addicted to it!!! 😶🤪
My kid used to love math now he hates math because he was a talented person but the glitches are now making him frustrate he got them correct but the glitches are in XtraMath
Love this app, my daughter is in 3rd Grade and although the timer makes her nervous she loves the app! She’s learning to perfect her math skills while playing a game she likes! Win Win! So glad our teacher recommended it!!! Her math grades are going up and she gaining confidence each day! Thank you xtra math!!
We love this simple straight-forward approach to math facts! I have a kindergartner, 1st grader, 4th grader, and 5th grader. They logon everyday for about 7-10 minutes for practice. As soon as they master one level, they move to the next. I can easily login and see if they have done their work and monitor their progress. My kids like that they can get on the app and get it done quickly. Now that we have been actively using the app for a month I’m seeing their school work improve and their simple mistakes decrease. I can’t believe the app was only $5. I wish they had an one for sight words!
I don't like this app. It is making my kid mad.
This is a awesome game! So nice to learn 0 to 12 times facts. Love it! ❤️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
I went to a school that used XtraMath very highly and I hated it. No kids liked it and everyone had anxiety stress and cried so much over it because it was so bad for their little minds. And I don’t think it was the teachers fault that extra math wanted to very reward the people that got through each learning block. Teaching kids bad phrases like you know you want to be faster learner. You don’t have to know these all you have to do is memorize them. It was so hard to get through that five years of doing it. Now I am in fourth grade and they stop using it and used a very amazingProgram iready.It was so much better than what I had been introduced to and I would really recommend it. It’s not an app you have to do it online through a-portal.But saying this this is 100% better than XtraMath so do I ready and avoid extra math. Or your children are going to have a fit of anxiety.
Lots of people say it’s bad because it’s a bit hard at first but you just have to have patience with it and after a couple practices it will come easily because it was super hard for me at first to but I kept going and finished the program with hundreds in addition, multiplication, subtraction and division so if your teacher tells your or suggests your class to try this app know it really does help.
This app under too much pressure on race the teacher only gives me like three seconds to answer the question😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰 there was this one glitch where I just tapped one once and the app counted one as 2 1s
I really love math thanks to you🐬🐬🏝🏝🦋🦋❤️❤️🐹🐹💙💙🍦🍦💜💜
