    My daughter loved math before having to use this app for school. Now she doesn't even want to do her math homework which she used to enjoy. I pray the makers of this program do not actually have children. If they do they should be ashamed of themselves for thinking phrases like "you know you want to be better and faster" and "don't worry about understanding, just memorize it" should ever be told to 5 and 6 yr olds. I was sitting with my daughter during the first time she used this app and watched as she showed significant anxiety with the insane emphasis on timing. I've never seen her respond that way to anything before. Now I don't think my kid should be shielded from reality. I get that she will be timed in school. And I don't think every kid should be constantly told how great they are or get prizes for their work. That's not life. But why can't a first grader be able to enjoy math? This app takes the opposite approach and boldly (and blandly) introduces mature academic measures of fast vs slow and good vs bad into very young minds. My husband is an elementary math teacher this app made him disgusted. He feels it's another example of trying to teach to standardized tests. If this is in fact true, congratulations Xtra Math, you've helped our education system stoop to a new low.

    I almost didn't buy this app after reading a lot of the negative reviews. There IS timed math on this app and it did really stress my kids out. I had talks with them about how they need to practice working under pressure, because there are lots of times in life where you have deadlines and you have to remain calm, or you will screw up...not to mention timed math tests. I also told them that this is the perfect way to practice working under pressure because this app really doesn't do anything. It's not for a grade, just for practice. After our talk, my kids turned a new leaf and learned how to work calmly while having a timer. They now love the app and want to learn what comes next after they complete a program. There also is a setting where you can turn off the timer, but I think it's good for my kids and we keep it on. In summary, we love it and it's helped my kids learn life skills and not just math.
  • Not the best, not the worst

    My son’s 3rd grade teacher uses this app to assist with memorizing the multiplication tables. The app seems to focus on answering math questions quickly. I have never understood why doing math quickly is important unless you are trying to calculate the trajectory of an incoming missile and that is what computers are for because I’d love to see people working that out in their heads. Anyways, I have emphasized with him to ignore the timer and focus on the problem. As he learns he naturally gets quicker whether the timer is there or not. I suppose teaching kids to ignore outside pressures and distractions and just get things done is life skill in itself. There are a couple of body language expressions the “teacher” makes when he gets things wrong that make him think the “teacher” is mad at him which does not seem conducive to learning but I reminded him it’s not his real teacher it’s just a character in an app. Overall, it’s not the best math app I’ve seen, and I kinda feel it’s unnecessary for what my son’s teacher is using it for, but I’ve seen worse ones.
  • Wonderful custom options!

    By Ali123412341234
    I’ve had the same complaints that others have had but now the custom option gives a little more time to those still working on their math facts and found the 3second time frame terrifying. My 8 yr old daughter knows her math facts but not quickly and the 3seconds discouraged her, making her want to give up and she said she “felt stupid.” The custom 6seconds allows her to practice without continued failure. Thank you so much for adding in this vital component. If you are considering this app, be sure that your child has strong number sense FIRST. This year we begin multiplication (we homeschool) so fast recollection of addition and subtraction is necessary. Thank you to Xtra math for listening to the reviews and making an even stronger program to assist those who don’t operate under the shortest of times.
  • Stressful

    By jshdyvd
    My daughter has used this app for three weeks and she appears to do worse every time. The pressure and stress of time pushes her to anxiety. To a 3rd grader who is not use to even using a calculator, the inverted number pad causes delays in response as she spends time looking for the numbers that are not in their natural order as she knows them. Second, while understanding the importance of rapid recall of math facts, a little more time should be given before an answer is marked wrong. Third, the racing the teacher aspect places more pressure as the guy in the side makes motions of “why don’t you know this” when an incorrect answer is given. There is a lot of improvements needed on this app and there should be other activities to gauge progress than repeated timed stressful testing. Learning should be fun, not stressful. While I am leaving a comment here that hopefully will spark more development of this app, I will also be commenting to my daughters school to discourage any further use of this app. This is a huge confidence deflator.
  • Misses the mark

    My grandson uses this for school. As a retired educator, I can see where a classroom might see this as beneficial. You can assess many children in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, this does not help all children. My grandson knows his addition facts very well. He has been able to write answers to 100 addition facts in well under three minutes. His fingers do not hit the keypad accurately thus recording many incorrect answers. Also, when using a keypad, your sense of touch feels the same in your brain for a 3, for example, as a 7. When you are physically writing the numbers, these facts will be recorded to your long term memory much more efficiently. This is his seventh month working with your addition app and he has yet to ‘pass’ to subtraction. Unfortunately, his classroom doesn’t utilize multiple forms of assessment. The timing factor does not work well for him either. If this method works well for your child, great. Don’t continue if it’s not working for you though.

    I love this app,mint helps me with my basic math, the design is amazing and it doesn't freeze! But I used to use this on my mom computer and after I used it, it was super laggy after. My moms computer is the only thing that pays the bills, it almost crashed, and I'm 100% sure it was XtraMath who caused the virus, same with my dads laptop, it's also the thing that pays the bills, it's his JOB AND LIFE. I tried it out on his laptop because it wasn't working on my moms computer anymore, after I used it on the laptop, it did the same, it was super laggy and almost crashed. This app has a virus I'm pretty sure. That's not the only thing, when I tried to log into my iPad (the only thing that hasn't almost crashed so far) it kept on saying my name was wrong, I don't get this and think this should be fixed if XtraMath is reading this, but accept that, pretty decent -Sarah Whinnery
  • Great way to track multiple children

    By Eli's Lids
    We love this simple straight-forward approach to math facts! I have a kindergartner, 1st grader, 4th grader, and 5th grader. They logon everyday for about 7-10 minutes for practice. As soon as they master one level, they move to the next. I can easily login and see if they have done their work and monitor their progress. My kids like that they can get on the app and get it done quickly. Now that we have been actively using the app for a month I’m seeing their school work improve and their simple mistakes decrease. I can’t believe the app was only $5. I wish they had an one for sight words!
  • Decent practice tool.

    This app would not be good for learning math, but for getting faster it is great. The lessons are short, so my daughter doesn't mind doing it once or twice a day and I have definitely seen an improvement in her speed. CONS: I wish the number key pad was a little larger. Sometimes she accidentally pushes the wrong number because of the key size. It can be discouraging. In the beat the teacher rounds she can become frustrated because it doesn't give much time to answer. She ends up frazzled quite a bit. All in all, it does a decent job though.
  • This app taught my kids Math!

    Our school brought xtramath to us and she learned her basic math. When my next child came, the school changed their progam but we were so happy with xtramath, we got the xtramath for him separately. Now he has learned his basic math skills. This is not a game, it is homework, so sometimes we have to push a little, but they love the completion certificates! We love this app and constantly recommend it, even back to our teachers who agree with us! It's a free app but now I need to send some thank you money!
