Tool: Factor Tree Reviews
Other Review (Not based on classroom experience)
Reviewer: arhard, Jun 11 2008 03:08:21:720PM
Review based on:
I am enrolled in a class entitled Using Technology to teach math.
Appropriate for:
introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings
Other Comments:
This is a great way to practice those factor trees. I feel that it would be helpful to model how to do a factor tree using this game and then, allow the students to practice this while monitoring them.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
How to factor a number (multiplication facts)
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
Basic keyboarding skills
What extra things must be done to make it work?
none
How hard was it for you to learn?
Very Easy
Explanation:
The instructions are clearly written on the screen. However, students tend to not read directions. A teacher should model the game and explain how to play before "turning the students lose".
Ability to meet my goals:
Very Effective
