Wish I had purchased flash cards instead.

I never would have purchased this app except for my kid bringing home an enrollment form from school. I feel like it was heavily marketed towards the school and then sold to me as a good idea for my kindergartener. My 5 year old loves math and is doing well in class. It is developmentally normal for a kid this age to count on fingers or use other physical objects to solve for addition and subtraction problems. With this app she has to set down the phone to check her answer on her fingers, pick up the phone to select the answer and try not to accidentally touch the wrong # from the cluster on the screen. Add the annoying countdown timer clicking like a metronome the whole time and my kid was a balling mess of angry tears in minutes. The format would be fine for an older kid. But even if your kinder kid is ready to practice for speed and accuracy I would recommend good old fashioned flash cards. I’m bothered that I was pressured to spend $5 on this app by our school and I feel like the developers shouldn’t be marketing it for 5 year olds if they don’t understand age appropriate needs.

A great app for kids to become comfortable with basic arithmetic

Xtra Math has helped my children excel at mathematics. If you want this app to be effective you have to encourage your kids to use it as often as possible, preferably daily. If you do this, it should be impossible for your child not to grow. This app does not teach the concepts, it is exactly what the name suggests: “extra” practice. Your child should already have learned the concepts before sitting them down with this app.I like this app for my kids because it’s no nonsense, no fluff, just straight up timed addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. With reading, we expect our children to move on from sounding out each word to “sight reading”; this app basically does same thing but for mathematics. My kids are no longer calculating each answer in their heads, they now sight read the problem and spit out the answer super fast.At first, it was a bit of a grind trying to get the kids into the habit of using the app but after awhile they started to enjoy it and loved that they would receive a score at the end of each session and would use that to challenge themselves and each other. Often they would proudly tell me how many happy faces they were awarded at a time.This app gets results and I highly recommend it.

I’m a veteran teacher & I ❤️ this app!

I’ve taught 5th grade for 15 yrs & can tell you being automatic w/ math facts makes math so much easier. Not knowing math facts is like trying to read w/o knowing the alphabet. This app is well-worth the few $. I use the free desktop version in class, but I bought this for my own child after seeing how well it works. I’ve never had so much success w/ math facts. Most of my class has passed multiplication, & even those who haven’t yet have improved dramatically. I have students w/IEPs who “just won’t ever be able to memorize them” about to pass. They came in barely knowing their 2s. Now their down to a few 9s. 10 min a day is all it takes (& it tells you when you’re done). The app has you practice the ones you miss to help you improve. I tell my students to focus more on getting them right than being fast. That makes a huge difference in their success. I ❤️ this app!

Taught me a lot

This app has taught me a lot of stuff that is now easy for me. In 3rd grade, I was really struggling with my math because, it was all multiplication and division. I was at a public school in 2nd and we were just starting to learn about multiplying. We didn’t learn division yet, and then I changed to a private Montessori school. And they were already doing like 4th and 5th grade math, so of course I was clueless!! But I was glad to get outta that public school. Now, I’m in a public school in 4th grade, and my teacher made us do XtraMath. And curious little me was wondering, “What is XtraMath?!” So, I tried it, I hated it. I didn’t realize that slowly over time, I was getting better multiplication!! And one day, I passed! I was so unbelievably happy and proud of myself!! Then I started division, I hated it, but eventually I got better and passed! Now I’m on the faster multiplication and I’m close to passing!! So thank you so much XtraMath for changing my life for the better! So anyway, long story short, BUY this app! It helps your child with adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division. It may not be that fun, but it’s worth it!! So buy this app for your kid, it totally works, I promise! Have a good day! 🤗🤗🤗

What a wonderful app for educators

I use Xtramath ALL the time with my students. I run a tutoring company and Xtramath is hands down the most efficient way to solidify basic arithmetic facts with my students. I often use it as a warm up at the start of each session just to get the mental gears running which gives me a few minutes to gather my materials and plan out what we’ll be doing later, all while they can slowly but sure get their facts down. I even use it with older students in JHS and beyond if I feel they need help with facts. It saves me time and effort not finding/creating fact sheets and it’s more dynamic than simply having them fill out addition or multiplication charts as it emphasizes speed and accuracy of the fats that they struggle with. Not to mention their analytics are extraordinarily useful as well giving me a solid insight to their progress. 10/10

Another way to do flashcards

Just started homeschooling and had my first and third grader start this program to help with math facts after having them do assessments for other math programs.I was a little surprised by their initial assessments and realized I could help if I was more consistent with flashcards for repetition. A few things to note:1. It is not a curriculum2. It is a tool to help with memorization.3. It tracks progress and gives a weekly summary with it of your individual students. 4. You have the ability to remove the teacher during when it quizzes you or races.. I admit that my third grader didn’t like that, but I framed it for him to say that I wanted him to crush the teacher and it didn’t require seeing the teacher visibly. There’s a function that takes the visible teachers body language away so it’s just the flashcards. It’s been super helpful and to see him triple their accuracy rate and has given me time to help my newborn when they tackle it as flashcards at a consistent time. I really really enjoyed telling them that they have a numerical value with their progress that they can understand their improvements with memorization.I also remind them that they are in different grades so trophies come and go based on them as individuals. It has helped tremendously.

My kids ask to do their math everyday now

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.

Great application for kids

First let me say that Parent5234 seems to coddle their children too much and is obvious by the review given. The teacher on screen is a guide to whether the child answered correctly or not and can be turned off if a child cries about a computer image on screen, the world is not all cupcakes and rainbows, wait till that child gets a job and has a boss telling them what to do. Second thing, yes the app is timed, but is by no means prohibits the child from learning, if your child is slow, then work with them instead of ignoring the true problem, your kid. Okay, now for my personal review. My 3rd grader is learning what is demanded of kids in 3rd grade and she is doing great. She may struggle, which is shown on her progress report, but it is all about practice. The progress reports are great because it shows their improvements. I am extremely satisfied with this application that I will now set up an account for my kinder child. That is the other positive things about this app, it has settings for different grade levels. Customer support is also a plus when questions come up.

Updated review

I go back and forth between hating and loving this app, but now my mind is made up. My daughter passed her addition and subtraction facts with this app, which I thought was great and I thought meant she knew her math facts. Then, we switched from Rod and Staff math to Singapore Dimensions and my daughter definitely does not know all of her addition math facts! And when I say she doesn’t know all, I really mean she pretty much doesn’t know any of them without counting. So, she pretty much wasted her time on an app she hated anyways and from which she learned very little. We’ll just stick to flash cards and speed drills from now on, and skip Xtramath. Definitely frequently assess your child to make sure she/he is actually learning her/his facts and able to solve addition problems presented to her/him in various ways if you plan on using this app or any math program that focuses on drill and rote learning. Unfortunately, this app only presents the problems in one way, so if your child is later confronted with an addition problem written in a different way, she may not understand how to solve it, which I didn’t think about until we started Singapore math, which wonderfully does present problems in multiple ways and expects children to actually think about the problems (I’ve learned that this is important for solving novel and unfamiliar problems!). And now I’m kicking myself for being lazy and leaving my daughter’s math facts learning to an app.
