This year we had the opportunity to use the math website IXL. Many of the students spent multiple hours working on their math skills. The five students that answered the most correct questions were Mikel, Ty, Lucas, Leslie, and Olivia. Mikel answered 1,106 questions correctly. Ty answered 1,109 questions correctly. Lucas answered 1,287 questions correctly. Leslie answered 1,330 questions correctly. Our overall winner was Olivia with 2,248 questions answered correctly. All of the students did a great job with this site.
This past week each student received their own login and password to IXL. This is a great website that allows the students to practice many math skills. The students’ progress is also recorded in many different reports. The website that our students login at is https://www.ixl.com/signin/fraser. If you forgot your login or password please check your email. So far our class has answered 2,000 problems and has spent over 10 hours practicing. Olivia has answered the most questions so far. She has answered 222. Great job everyone and keep practicing.
