Other Review (Not based on classroom experience) Reviewer: arhard, Jun 10 2008 11:06:44:130AM |

Review based on: I have currently taking a course geared towards using technology to teach math. |

Appropriate for: introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings |

Other Comments: I would use this game to introduce a topic and then to allow students to practice this. Also, if I had students who struggled, I would use this as remediation later on. |

What math does one need to know to use the resource? Multiplication (multiples of a number) |

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? Easy |

Explanation: Again, I felt it was easy for me to use. But I feel it would be a little bit difficult for students to learn but not unattainable. Teachers would have to use a bit of scaffolding to teach them to use the program. |

Ability to meet my goals: Effective |
