Changing Programs in XtraMath

At a meeting this morning, we were discussing some of the challenges students and teachers are facing while using XtraMath.

One of those challenges is using the program for multiplication/division facts rather than addition and subtraction only…students were taking a long time to master the addition and subtraction facts and therefore never had a chance to practice multiplication and division! Follow the red arrows below to see how you can change your students’ programs.

Another challenge was the time limit being too advanced for some students. XtraMath has actually added an option where you can change the time limit to 6 seconds (vs 3) so students have more time and can still be considered “masters” of the fact even if they take a few more seconds to get there! Hope this helps!!
