I Know It Math
I Know It is an engaging, interactive math website for elementary students. Teachers create their own classroom and assign questions to either individual students or the whole class. Teachers can also provide hints to the questions if they want. The student is also provided with feedback if they get a question incorrect.
There is a free 60-day trial and after that, you must subscribe.
Note: This can be used for grades Kindergarten-5th grade.
Be able to solve specific math questions assigned by the teacher, that they need extra practice on.
The vocabulary you introduce to the students will be based on what math concept you are having them practice.
