Mathematics Online

As promised, I will share with you one of the sites I have just recently begun using. I heard about it from a colleague. IXL is a Mathematics practice website from Preschool to Year 9. There is a certain amount of free daily practice before a pop up comes up to say that you have reached your daily limit. It will then ask if you would like to become a member. Membership fees are quite reasonable, with monthly or yearly fees. There is also a classroom membership for teachers/schools. 

Each year level has various learning areas and activities to practice their skills. 
For example in the Year 2 folder there is

  • Counting and Number Patterns
  • Place Values
  • Comparing and Ordering
  • Mixed Operations
  • Names of Numbers
  • Patterns
  • Addition - 1 Digit, 2 Digits & 3 Digits
  • Subtraction - 1 Digit, 2 Digits & 3 Digits
  • Estimation and Rounding
  • Logical Reasoning
  • Time
  • Money
  • Data and Graphs
  • Measurement
  • Geometry
  • Fractions
  • Multiplication
  • Division
Students can answer the questions and their points are recorded on the right side of the screen. The time it takes for them to answer the questions is also shown. My class really enjoyed using it the other day, however we have not signed up for membership as yet. It may be something that you can work out with your school. The site is well worth a look. It would also be particularly helpful on an interactive whiteboard to go through the questions as a class.
