9 Reasons Why Teachers Choose IXL Math Program

There is no such thing as “math brain”. Every child is capable of learning and mastering math starting from pre-k up to 12th grade. It is just a matter of practice, dedication and, of course, using the right tools. Thankfully, with so many tech innovations happening in education it is now easier than ever to find the right complementing math program for your students and kids to practice both at school and at home. The only problem is keeping students continuously engaged and interested in the practice.

And that’s where IXL Learning comes in handy. With a proven record of successful learning products for Language Arts, Science and Social Studies, IXL Math program helps students to actually enjoy the process of learning and practicing math skills. It bridges the gap between traditional math curriculum at school and hands-on math knowledge.

As a parent of two and as an elementary teacher, I love using IXL Learning and there are a number of reasons why.

  1. Wide range of math concepts

IXL Math offers a great variety of math problems such as shapes, numbers, patterns and much more. It is a great tool to enhance your math curriculum in classroom and help students master their math skills in a fun and engaging way.

  1. All levels

What I love about IXL is that it covers all skill levels from pre-k to 12th grade moving from easy to more difficult ones subsequently.

  1. No special skills required

It’s an incredible supplemental math practicing program, especially for visual learners. IXL math doesn’t require any hearing skills which is of great importance to children with special needs or disabilities. With IXL kids who do not read well yet, can practice math skills and answer questions speaking out loud on the microphone, making it a sufficiently basic solution for preschoolers.

  1. Affordability

IXL Math now has become more affordable especially for Homeschool Buyers Co-op members because of  the discount offered by IXL to homeschooling parents, who otherwise couldn’t afford to have separate accounts for more than one child.

  1. Easy-to-use

The user friendly interface, ad-free screen, record keeping and the ability to print reward certificates and children’s progress reports make IXL Math an all-in-one tool for both teachers and students.

  1. Virtual awards as motivation

Kids are very much amused with the rewards (such as virtual ribbons, virtual prizes, hidden treasures, etc.) they get while practicing their math skills at each level. It truly motivates them to keep on learning, earning more points and discovering more prizes and gems.

  1. Error correction

When a child fails, there is always an opportunity to go back to the previous skill that was successfully completed and try again. Moreover, there is an explanation of the right answer so that the child doesn’t repeat the same mistake next time.reporting and analytics ixl


  1. Reporting & Analytics

The next awesome feature that IXL Math offers is the comprehensive reporting, which shows how much time your child has spent on this or that skill and what areas he still struggles in. It also gives you a breakdown of math skills and by reviewing your students’ progress in a report you can get a complete picture of all strengths and weak spots.

  1. Engaging and fun for kids

IXL math is very simple for kids to work independently and yet it is engaging enough to keep them on task without being guided by their parents.


To conclude, IXL is a brilliant tool that can be used in any classroom to reinforce math practice and help kids build solid math skills through interactive and fun exercises.
