IXL MathIXL has become a favorite, especially for assessment preparation. Activities are based on state standards and students enjoy this interactive web application. The teacher may choose practice activities based upon a particular indicator. Students work problems and receive immediate feedback as to whether the answer is correct or incorrect. Immediately following the incorrect answer, a dialog box appears on the screen showing the student the correct answer with a brief explanation of how he/she should have arrived at the answer. Class and individual progress charts are available to the teacher
