WHO: Teachers, Parents, and Students looking for a way to practice math and english while earning rewards for their work!
HOW: Parents/Students can sign up on their own, or teachers can create classes and invite students to join. Teachers are then able to assign specific topics that are Common Core aligned, and view Leaderboards and Student Progress. As students practice, they are rewarded with badges, points and coins. Along the way, students are also given goals, such as answering a certain amount in a row correct. Students earn points for their math and english practice, and parents reward their students with coins. In order for parents to give coins, they must have a paid subscription. Students can then turn in the points and coins for items such as gift cards.
