However, the website does offer up to 12th grade. Check out the ixl.com student checklists that can be found in my Teachers Pay Teacher store.

My second favorite math apps for kids is xtramath.org. This is my favorite of the free math apps and the best free math app that my students use. You can personalize a profile for each student choosing between, addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. However, you can select a mixture of all 4. Students will earn a red, yellow, or green dot at the end of each lesson. If my students earn a green dot, they receive a treat. I will also reward them with a homework pass if they consistently receive a green dot for two weeks. Teachers have the option to send home sign-in information with students so they have the option to work outside of school and parents can track progress.
