It promotes student mastery through immediate detailed feedback and randomly generated values to retry missed problems. Teachers follow student progress through detailed reports.
Developed by a team of math teachers, programmers, designers and illustrators, BuzzMath is based on the National Council of Math Teachers curriculum in the NCTM Middle School book and the Common Core State Standards in the 3 Common Core Books.
XtraMath provides rewarding supplemental math activities and makes them available for free. Students complete practice activities that are recorded and shared with teachers and parents.
