Bottom Line:

This app is useful to brush up the concepts which we already know. XtraMath doesn’t have a long, lengthy activities which burden a student however it has activities which take less than 10 minutes each day so it can be incorporated in students daily live. Moreover, it acts like a revision exercises for students as the topic are already covered in their school. It provides a daily exercise which refreshing their mind and doesn’t make student forget the concepts easily.

However, if a student is not able to perform well in XtraMath activities despite he/she has a good understanding of the topic but cannot handle the time pressure which is attachedto it. This can be frustrating for a student and he can be demotivated by this. Furthermore, activities are boring and drying there is no interesting factor, which will attract students towards XtraMath activities. XtraMath activities are undoubtedly helpful for a student and can enhance students’ mathematic skills but it should be interesting and engaging. For example, after 5 activities there should be one activity which should not be directly asking a question of math, but should be indirectly addressing math question by using a puzzle or a picture story.
