We’re also happy to announce that Woot Math is now FREE for the 2015-’16 school year! An amazing opportunity to put this wonderful and effective learning tool in front of your students.

From their website:
Teachers Choose Woot Math understands that teachers know who their struggling students are and what concepts they are struggling with. The dashboard enables the teacher to easily customize a student’s goal, and the software adaptively presents the appropriate content to reach this goal.
Interactive Learning Unlike skill and drill apps, Woot Math seeks to mimic the natural give and take that exists between a teacher and their students. Concepts are introduced by working an example problem or through a small segment of exposition, then immediately the student is asked to jump in and help.
Personalized Instruction Woot Math is a personalized progression of lessons designed to build number sense and mastery of fractions. It adapts the content in real-time to meet individual student’s needs, the content is designed to align with the Common Core Math Content Standards using the latest academic research.
