|BuzzMath Middle School||Free||This app is designed for iPad.|
I’ve had the opportunity to use BuzzMath for two years with my classes. I teach 6th-8th graders and I can honestly say this has been the most motivating instructional math app we’ve used. It’s visually appealing, which is a big plus compared to many others apps/sites. The students are allowed to ‘Retry this Page’ and hit ‘Show Me an Example’, which takes away the anxiety of getting a problem wrong. My students are constantly competing against one another to earn more Stars and Badges! Every activity is aligned to the Common Core State Standards, which my district loves. It has a very reasonable price point as well. I’d recommend BuzzMath for an enrichment tool (elementary), intervention tool (high school), or everyday instruction at the middle school level!
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.
