After several years, I took a position at BOCES where I'm focused on professional development. I am nationally certified in both curriculum mapping and Fast ForWord.

I use all tools before I will put them in front of students. I have mixed emotions about this app. If kids are good at math, then this is a good practice app. If they are not, I wouldn’t give them access. The examples are generally lacking a solid explanation and if you get it wrong, when you click on “Show me the solution” you get just that, the answer with no explanation on how it was derived. In short, this app has been weighed, it’s been measured and been found wanting.
