Review based on:
As an assignment in an education class, in order to familiarize myself with MathTools, I was asked to select and rate a tool. I chose this tool because many of the students I work with in my job as a math tutor often have difficulty with the math skill of rounding.
introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings
The concept is presented in a clear and concise way. I also like that students are given a chance to practice the skill at the end of the instruction. This would be a valuable tool to use in the classroom or home for instruction and/or reinforcement.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
place value to the millions place
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
What extra things must be done to make it work?
It requires a lot of reading, which some users may not like. The fact that you can skip to the practice activity, which is very clearly explained, minimizes the need to read.
How hard was it for you to learn?
It was clear, quick, and to the point!
Ability to meet my goals:
Math 3: Number sense; Math 4: Number sense; Math 5: Number sense; Math 6: Number sense
