It is also used during small group work time, where students are learning math content at their specific level.
Parents like IXL because it is something they can do at home and learn along with their child.
I enjoy putting the Real-Time Center up on the projector so everyone can see that I can see what they are working on and it makes it easy to see which students might be in need of help. It helps me see specific strands of weaknesses and strengths among the students in my classroom.
The students are already grouped with skills to work on, which makes enrichment and... IXL is aligned to our math curriculum so I can use it for whole class instruction.
I think IXL is great for remediation and enrichment as it really fosters an environment of customization in how quickly they progress through the lessons.
I love that IXL has replaced the need for most paper worksheets.I also use a variety of the reports at parent-teacher conferences, depending on what I need to discuss with each individual parent.I use competition in my class a lot, and we openly share how much the students have done on IXL on a weekly basis.Anything that's not finished in class becomes homework.During class, I encourage students to ask me or a peer for help if they are unsure about a certain lesson, but the built-in explanations allow them to get help even when they're home finishing up an assignment.Read the inspiring stories from these remarkable educators below.I use IXL to check students' understanding of the concept after whole-class instruction (10-15 minutes). In 2015-2016 school year, my students group made an average 95% growth in 6th grade math tests on PARCC (top growth among entire Aurora School District schools).I assign homework from 3rd grade up to even the Geometry level. My students use it every morning for whole class grammar instruction, and several times a week for math reinforcement and homework.We have 1-1 devices, so I use IXL to help me make sure that they understand the concepts that I teach in class. Students will be struggling with a concept that I have taught and retaught again. It helps me figure out what gaps need to be filled and where to send students that need the extra challenge.I have seen huge improvements in a majority of my students.Trouble Spots and the new IXL Diagnostic are really helpful when deciding which direction I need to point individual students in.
