How to Use Xtra Math

Xtra math is done on a computer. We use it to practice math facts. We are working to get better at addition facts. After we log-in and get to Xtra Math we click the start button.

  A math fact is on the screen like 6+2=  we use the numbers on the keyboard to enter an answer.

 If you get it right,you go on to the next question.  If you get it wrong, you will see the answer.  You have to type the answer to get the next fact.  You have 10 seconds to answer.  We can do Xtra math in the computer lab, in the classroom, or at home.  We just have to remember our individual PIN numbers. 

The green dots time how long it takes you to answer.
This is what it looks like if you take too long.

Here is an example of the results of a quiz.  The Smiley faces are for correct answers.

Do you think you would like to try Xtra Math too?

  2. Love it. Anna loves doing it at home. Does she have a password that she uses in school because right now she is on the multiplication facts.

  3. Yes, the students all have a 4 digit passowrd that they use everytime they log in. If they are logging in at home, they can use the same 4 digit password to log in and it will be added to their progress and the work will be included in the reports I receive each week.
