Math exercises for classroom and home
Good teachers use textbooks as a source of exercises, and for little else.
Motivated students use textbooks for revision and for the exercises.
XrMaths apps satisfy both these needs.
They are flexible in use.
They provide feedback.
There are worked examples for every question.
They can be used again & again..
The App generates the question and marks the answer, leaving the teacher free to work one-to-one with individuals or groups of students.
Teacher and student select the range of questions to use.
They can be done in any order
They are color coded to indicate difficulty
Black indicates an instruction screen
Green questions are easy, blue are average and red are there as a challenge
The questions range over several grades,
Those who need to can start at easier material. Those who finish quickly can move on to more challenging work.
With a few exceptions the questions are random, so repeated questions will be a little different
Teacher and pupil can monitor progress
There is immediate feedback
Repeated questions generally are similar but with different numbers
Some questions have up to six varients
The student is encouraged to repeat a question if the Example screen is selected
Every time the app is relaunched the ticks are removed, ready for the next user
If a pupil returns to an app, the lack of ticks should encourage some revision of earlier work
