It only gives you three seconds for you to answer a random question!
Oops! Typing Error!
If you accidentally press the wrong number, then it automatically says you are wrong! Boooooo! If you use the keypad, it hurts your finger & it will make you too slow! Just frustrating unless you are the king of typing...
Look at this website and read all the reviews: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/website-reviews/xtramath/user-reviews
Here is one I really agree with:
“Making Children Hate Math!
I have an after school tutoring program. Just recently we have encountered xtramath, as it is being prescribed as "homework" for many of our students. We do a LOT of timing here, it is an important part of the way we teach. So I had high hopes for this program. However, xtramath sucks the life out of learning. The reviews by young users on this site are correct. Even posing as "second graders" we had trouble passing simple levels. The interface is problematic, and can lead to errors, there is very little reinforcement, and the program is boring in the extreme. It is all too easy to make a keystroke mistake, and that results in a lot of repetition. This program might have some good ideas, but the execution is making the children we know hate math. Avoid this program and ask your school to discontinue its use for "homework" if you don't want to make your child hate math.”
Also, this website says that Xtramath is 2 stars! I do personally do not use websites that ratings are under 4 stars. I will continue using the Mad Minute Sheet I have for practice. The reason I typed this is because I don’t want other kids using frustrating website.
Let’s say you type some answer and it says you are wrong which is normal. Then, you get it right maybe 100 times. It still says you are wrong!
Weird Mr. C
The guy who “teaches” you is just odd. He always does “Race the Teacher” and it’s no fun. He is always unsupportive. He doesn’t let you retry the problem if it is incorrect! Nor does he explain the problem!
These are 5 reasons why we shouldn’t do Xtramath.
Hope you agree we me and never use Xtramath. DON"T WASTE YOU TIME!!!!!!!!!!!
