What is Xtra Math?
We are using a program called Xtra Math to increase speed and accuracy in math. Students will use the program almost every day in class, and are able to do additional practice at home. On a laptop or desktop computer, your child can do Xtra Math for free at xtramath.org. Although not required, it is recommended that your student also practices Xtra Math at home.
Think of Xtra Math as a math vitamin! For best results, your child should do Xtra Math every day. It only takes a few minutes and can become part of your daily routine. Math facts are the building blocks of your child's math education and your child will be well-rewarded for the time they spend practicing and mastering their math facts. More difficult math work will become much easier as your student can more accurately and quickly recall their basic math facts.
