I am 13, I have Aspergers Syndrome, and I found it hard to do maths and other subjects in mainstream school. I am homeschooled and can deal with the other subjects now, but the math curriculum was still impossible for me. IXL is the best thing since sliced bread! Well, maybe that's exaggerating, but seriously, If you have a special needs kid of any age, or you're a parent or teacher, give IXL a shot. I love IXL, and now I love maths! Much to my mom's delight!

Jessica R., year 6 student, Gillingham, Dorset

My students love it! It really challenges them to master the concepts. I told one of my students to change to another topic so she could practice for the upcoming tests, and she said, 'No, wait! I want to get to 100% first!' I have never seen her more motivated to succeed!

JaLene Rosengren, 4th and 5th grade teacher, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, U.S.A.

IXL has greatly helped to fill learning gaps and has provided accountability for progress and time-on-task behavior.

Nat Underhill, 5th grade teacher, St. Charles, Illinois, U.S.A.

After using IXL for two years during our intervention time, my 5th graders had an average growth of 56% on the state assessments and my 6th graders had a growth rate of 82%. Every student in my class met the standards for the school year!

Darlene Shaw, special education teacher, Gilbert, Arizona, U.S.A.

When I assign an IXL lesson, I can let kids work together because they cannot cheat. Each student has a different problem but the same concept. I love overhearing the students helping each other and working out the solution together.

Sandy Tignor, 8th grade math teacher, Eureka, California, U.S.A.

We just started using IXL last year, but our school loves it. Parents like to see statistics, so the reports with the graphs are a big hit. Also, with any of our students who have IEP's, it helps us track their progress.

Becky Smith, middle school math teacher, Rockledge, Florida, U.S.A.

I like the breakdown of specific skills that correlate with grade level, I like the easy user interface, and I really like the correct explanations with illustrations for the answers to each question. Students and teachers love the ease of use, the reports, and awards. Thank you so much for creating an amazing math website.

Sandy Rosenbaum, K-8 educational technology coordinator, Bethesda, Maryland, U.S.A.

I love how the awards section gives you an award, because then you can actually feel proud about completing an activity! I also love that the questions go from easy to hard! It is fun learning in IXL, and when my mom says to do some studying, I go directly to IXL!

Faria, 5th grade student, Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A.

IXL has helped me a vast amount because it took my grades from C's and D's to B's, and I'm working on getting them to A's. I was pretty sure my teacher was going to ask me to drop down from algebra and go to accelerated math, but I got help from IXL before that happened.

Aneesha, 7th grade student, Austin, Texas, U.S.A.

My children are loving it and I have also received great comments from parents. In class, they are begging to get on your site!!!

Jennifer Smith, 3rd grade teacher, Olive Branch, Mississippi, U.S.A.

I am a 6th grader who absolutely despised math. I would try and fail and fail. But IXL has helped me tremendously.

Andrew N., student, Bradford, Tennessee, U.S.A.

I like the prize board because it is encouraging, and also the fun encouraging comments you get when you solve a problem. IXL is an exceptional website, and it is good for all ages. I would recommend it to all of my friends. It's really dynamic and engaging.

Bellatrix, year 8 student, Perth, Western Australia, Australia

When I got on IXL, I was hoping that IXL could help me improve on every subject (which it has). IXL has been great. IXL has helped a lot because before our class has even been taught the subject I already know what’s happening.

Benjamin, year 8 student, Ourimbah, New South Wales, Australia

Because of IXL I am now in the top math class! IXL has helped enormously because I would start and not want to stop. IXL gets you intrigued and that's coming from a year 9 student.

Jessica M., year 9 student, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

Students are retaining their learning and understanding because they are being given more opportunities to embed it into long-term memory. As a result they’re more successful.

Narelle, secondary math teacher, Carnarvon, Western Australia, Australia

IXL really boosted my junior high daughter's confidence in math – so much so that I asked my school if I could get a subscription for my math classes.

Susan White, special education teacher, Morris, Illinois, U.S.A.

Your site is fantastic and it is great that it is aligned with the new Australian curriculum. The kids are loving the problem solving and also that they get instant feedback. This has led to greater confidence and engagement.

Dianne Williams, year 6/7 teacher, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

I love the Awards thing — how you get to win prizes — because it's fun and it makes me want to get up from 5:00AM in the morning to do IXL. And I love the setting of it, it feels very comfortable and I understand when I get a question wrong.

Morgana, year 5 student, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

This is our first week of IXL. The kids were pleading with me to go onto IXL half an hour before school started this morning. Other teachers that walked into the room were astounded to see our 16 notebook computers all being used by excited kids doing MATHS!!

Jill Harrison, teacher of year 7 and 8 students, Motueka, New Zealand

My students are improving by the day, and some even stay in for recess to work on IXL!

Helm Jackson, 5th grade teacher, Redmond, Washington, U.S.A.

I have been walking around on cloud nine since I started using IXL because it is everything I needed and more. I got my own children started, I got my principal using it for his own kids, I got a subscription for my class, and I have told every teacher I can about it! Thanks!!

Pamela Awbrey, teacher, Edinburg, Texas, U.S.A.

We've only been using IXL for a couple of weeks but already most of my math-phobic students have blossomed. And my better students are thrilled to have more challenging work always available at their fingertips.

Victor Lena, algebra teacher, Reston, Virginia, U.S.A.

IXL has helped me heaps in all my learning, I am having fun while learning new things and earning rewards for it. I love feeling that warm glow when I get a new reward. Thanks IXL!!!!

Lane B., year 6 student, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

This is an awesome product! Money well-spent by me. I look forward to additional math and language arts subjects.

Brian Gilson, teacher, Houston, Texas, U.S.A.

The entire site is amazing. I love the fact that as a teacher you are able to create accounts for your students, track their progress, and view a rich assortment of reports showing you just how much they are improving. Also, the interactive style and scoring method for the students are great.

Althea Carter, teacher, Lithonia, Georgia, U.S.A.

I currently teach first grade in an inner city school and am a former technology coordinator. Our current technology coordinator sent me your site, and I loved it. The lessons were set up well, the screens were motivating and fast moving, and the topics match the standards. Last year each of our first grade students had a $27 consumable math book. Your site would cost a lot less.

Lori Sanders, 1st grade teacher, Allentown, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Thanks to IXL, our students' performance has increased dramatically. Because they practice the skills daily, and because the site provides feedback, students are able to correct their mistakes and master the concepts easily.

Waleska Batista, teacher, Cherry Hill, New Jersey, U.S.A.

Students are telling me they really love practicing this way because they get problems at their level and get instant info when their answers are wrong. They have dramatically increased their independent practice in math over the traditional daily math book we currently use.

Jenny Shotts, teacher, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.

I can tell that you have put in a huge amount of time into this website. I know that there are many math websites out there. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty in providing an affordable math site that addresses core and state standards. Parents love it, too! Good job.

John Barenberg, 3rd grade teacher, Marsing, Idaho, U.S.A.

I was having trouble in certain math units but thanks to the easy access to math explanations I am doing much better, going from a B- average to an A average.

Christian S., student, Markham, Ontario, Canada

IXL is great and amazing! When I go to school I get the answers right away. But not fractions because I'm not there yet.

Sophia, grade 2 student, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I like how we are not limited to just our grade level, but can choose to start at JK or at the high school level, depending on what we want to do. As a substitute, I see math at all levels and sometimes I'm not sure why the students are doing a math problem a certain way, then I discover it on here and go, "Ooh! That's why!" It's a good way for me to keep up with the math curriculum and to help keep my mind fresh! I have heard lots of positive feedback from others and see it often used at schools. I like IXL a lot and plan to use it in my own classroom someday.

Lisa-Marie Tew, teacher, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

My favorite features include the explanations, the reports, and how it matches our provincially administered and guided curricular objectives. I have really enjoyed my IXL experience and the variety of learning options it presents within my classrooms.

Weldon Rinn, teacher, Rosenort, Manitoba, Canada

Just wanted to say that IXL's interface is very friendly and easy to use. Currently we use it with high school students with special needs, and I have also used it privately with a student who was receiving tutoring. I feel that it has led to a further understanding and grasp of the subject matter. The ability to practice whenever you want is great, too.

Joe Bisbee, high school teacher, Groton, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

IXL has helped me because our workbook that we do in class isn't as hard as this (not that this is very hard but it just makes me think about the answer more).

Amy, student, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I found IXL on the internet about 4 years ago and love it. Our school bought it and we use it daily.

Sharleen Oetting, kindergarten teacher, Stockbridge, Georgia, U.S.A.

Considering the amount of content we have to cover in a year, we have very little time to get in adequate practice before moving on. IXL has solved that problem. It has also allowed us a VERY easy way to go back and review skills throughout the year we have already covered. For our lower achieving students, sending them back one or two levels has helped improve weaknesses and build confidence.

Sandye Kabalen, 6th grade math teacher, Richmond, Kentucky, U.S.A.

I love the way IXL scores students based on achievement through each subskill. It's a great tool for students to practice and reinforce specific skills that have been taught in the classroom. It's a very well-designed service.

Jerry Klebba, special education teacher, grades 3-5, Bangor, Michigan, U.S.A.

My teacher told my class about IXL. It is really fun and it gives lots of math help and practice. I like that when I click on 4th grade, it has everything we are doing in my class. My favorite thing is that it gives awards when I practice.

Jaclyn H., 4th grade student, Potomac, Maryland, U.S.A.

WOW! There are so many great features. I love the individual tracking of students. What a great way to easily collect and transfer data! Keep up the great work!

Colleen Jones, 1st and 2nd grade teacher, Blossvale, New York, U.S.A.

I am an educator for high school students and the technology director for the school district. I teach Health Care Math. My students have a variety of math backgrounds. They really like working at their own pace in IXL and seeing their success!

Julie Brunner, teacher, Holden, Missouri, U.S.A.

IXL is amazing. Students who were not in my class heard about it from other students and wanted to be added to my roster.

Sharion Tipler, librarian and summer school teacher, Jackson, Mississippi, U.S.A.

My favorite features about IXL are the awards. This is my favorite because as you keep progressing then you get new achievements and pictures representing what you have accomplished. IXL has been really helpful because now I can practice things that I have learned. This has improved my grades in school a lot.

Ian C., 8th grade student, Redmond, Washington, U.S.A.

I have 5 students who work on IXL on a regular and frequent basis, and their achievement has shot up tremendously. I recommend your program to everyone!

Beverly Hartman, kindergarten teacher, Concord, North Carolina, U.S.A.

IXL is awesome to me. I am obsessed with the fact that we can have pictures as our little character, and we earn them when we do math. I think that's very encouraging for me.

Raene, 6th grade student, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.

My students love IXL! I would have done better in math as a child had this technology been around back then! It has really helped my students master grade level math concepts and skills.

Rachel Stout, kindergarten teacher, La Crescenta, California, U.S.A.

I like how the reports show comprehensive coverage of everything you do on IXL. Also, the syllabus-aligned skills are great.

Adithyan, 6th grade student, Trivandrum, Kerala, India

I was hoping that I could become more patient while solving problems, because although I know the concepts extremely well and could solve problems easily, whenever I got a problem wrong it was because of the stupidest of mistakes. Despite being in Class VI, the occasional wrong multiplication or missing carry-over could bring my downfall. IXL has made my grades skyrocket as I make fewer silly mistakes.

Eshan S., student, Pune, Maharashtra, India

I was starting to do badly in Math, and I went on your site and did about an hour's worth of lessons each day and started to realize that I was really improving. From an 80% I went to a 100%!

Sara, 7th grade student, U.S.A.

I used to get A's in math, but when I started to do IXL my A's turned into A+'s.

Rashad R., 4th grade student, Fayetteville, North Carolina, U.S.A.

When I saw my report card and how much I improved I am happy for IXL being by my side.

Maryam, 3rd grade student, Exton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

IXL is a wonderful program, and it is well worth its subscription fee. My students are enjoying it, and I am finding the information the program gives me to be useful. Thank you for developing such a great product.

Kerry Broadhurst, 4th grade teacher, Albany, Oregon, U.S.A.

I am amazed at the comments from parents concerning how well their children are responding to the website. Mind you these are three year old children. The mom of the youngest three-year-old stated that the first thing her child wants to do after being at preschool for 7 hours is to come home and do her math on the computer. The mother was elated. I am so thankful to have found this site.

Latrece Johnson, preschool teacher, Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A.

I think everyone should go on IXL. My parents are proud of me for thinking of going here. My grades are high because of this.

Abigail, 4th grade student, Belleville, New Jersey, U.S.A.

I was really bad in maths and now... I am so good my grades for maths tests have gone up! That's from 60's to 90's percent!

Sameeya, student, Nairobi, Kenya

I can tell you my class LOVES this site! Whenever our teacher says all right everyone! After you're done, you can go to IXL.com everyone says YES! And yes, our teacher says we are starting to get to know the things she has us work on on here a lot better! Wow. Your site is awesome and I am glad our teacher told us about it.

Hannah, 6th grade student, Hutchinson, Kansas, U.S.A.

I am a teacher with various grades in one classroom (3-5). What I love about your website is that it is kid friendly and has reports for the teacher to closely monitor what the students actually does during his/her time on the computer. It allows practice on numerous skills which is an advantage for upcoming state assessment.

Shirley S. Brill, teacher, Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.A.

This site is a wonderful resource and has everything to supplement my first grade math curriculum.

Cindy O'Shaughnessy, 1st grade teacher, Cedar Park, Texas, U.S.A.

I am totally excited by what this site has brought about for my students. They leave the computer lab and ask when we are going to go back and work on math again. Some of the students are so excited about the program that they ask if they can work on it during recess time! That is amazing.

Jenna Wilk, 5th and 6th grade teacher, Rogers City, Michigan, U.S.A.

Every thing about ixl is so perfect!

Saskkia W., grade 5 student, St. Catherine, Jamaica

Thank you for creating a math site that is so ideal!

Erica Medard, 2nd grade teacher, Evanston, Indiana, U.S.A.

The kids love the Awards page, and it is a huge motivator. The reports are easy to use and target exactly what I want to know. The explanation button on the activities is terrific and really helps the kids when they get the wrong answers.

Fred Collins, teacher and technology specialist, Everett, Washington, U.S.A.

I love IXL. It really helps me focus on my learning in math. I feel like my education has come a long way since before I knew about IXL.

Tishawna S., student, Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A.

I was struggling in math and IXL helped! I just got a B+ on my last math test!

Paloma G., 5th grade student, Huntington Beach, California, U.S.A.

IXL's really been helping me with my math. I've been getting better grades and understanding the stuff too. Thank you for this program!

James P., 8th grade student, Falling Waters, West Virginia, U.S.A.

I really like IXL and I like that it makes you better at math. The awards make you feel like you have done something special.

Jeremy A., student, Charleston, West Virginia, U.S.A.

I really think this website is helpful for kids learning. Their heads are going to explode in knowledge!

Luca S., 5th grade student, Bellevue, Washington, U.S.A.

I'm improving at an amazing rate. In CIE [University of Cambridge International Examinations], We have to do checkpoints at 8th grade. The marking scheme is 1-6 with 6 being the highest grade. I got 6 in math BECAUSE OF IXL!!!

Vibhawari J., grade 9 student, Hyderabad, India

IXL has helped me improve my grades and will most likely help me again this year. I am so grateful for IXL!

Cassandra B., 6th grade student, Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A.

It has improved students' skills immensely.

Lois Loft, teacher, Bartlett, Tennessee, U.S.A.

I was searching for some subtraction drills and IXL came up. Very lucky! ... I've rarely seen kids so intensely interested in what they are learning about.

Barry Stewart, grade 3-4 math teacher, Hope, British Columbia, Canada

The different ways questions are asked ensures that students truly understand a certain skill.

Elizabeth McLemore, teacher, Rome, Georgia, U.S.A.

Your math program is great! I have finally found a program that corresponds with our state standards. My special needs students are able to practice and review skills they have not mastered from a wide range of grade levels. The progress reports are extremely helpful with my record keeping and assessments.

Janet Robinson, teacher, Cerro Gordo, North Carolina, U.S.A.

Now, instead of giving homework, I assign IXL practice for 15-20 minutes a night. Students get points for time spent practicing, how many medals attained, and improvement in scores. My unmotivated students beg to use the computers. I set a goal for an hour a week, but all surpass it.

Nikki Pivovar, high school special education teacher, Ansonia, Connecticut, U.S.A.

I love that you can do so many different lessons. It's amazing! I also like that you can challenge yourself and do a higher grade level. Most of all I love that you can earn online virtual prizes and that you can change the character on top. I love IXL more than any other boring learning website.

Erin, 4th grade student, Temecula, California, U.S.A.

I am a student and I used to be weak at maths but after using IXL I am now getting good in maths and starting liking it too. Thanks IXL!

Maryam A., student, Islamabad, Pakistan

This website has bumped my grade level from an 85% to a 95% in Math.

Melissa C., student, Burr Ridge, Illinois, U.S.A.

I feel like before, in elementary school, I hated math, and I mean HATE! IXL has made me enjoy math. I wake up in the morning thinking “I wonder what skill we are doing today?” IXL has made me more confident in math. Thank You.

Samantha, student, Salem, Oregon, U.S.A.

At the beginning of fourth grade I was scared when we had multiplication tests. At first I wasn't passing. So one day my teacher said we would be starting IXL for homework every night. I went on that night and LOVED it!!! The next Tuesday we had a multiplication test and I PASSED my threes! I went on every night for the rest of the month to see if it worked. It did! Now it's almost the end of fourth grade, and two months ago I finished all my multiplication and DIVISION! Thank you so much IXL!!

Paloma G., student, Huntington Beach, California, U.S.A.

I am a teacher of a class of Year 7 and 8, and they LOVE IXL. They will choose to do it rather than have free time in the room, and are forever trying to beat each other's scores. They are going ahead in leaps and bounds and gaining wonderful confidence as they go.

Annette M., teacher, Drouin, Victoria, Australia

I love cats and I also love IXL because it's the awesomest website ever. I think that it has improved and helped me tremendously.

Isabelle K., 5th grade student, Lexington, Kentucky, U.S.A.

Me and my class love this web site, because it helps us learn. Thanks for making this. IT ROCKS!!

Kylie, student, Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A.

I love that I can have kids in many different levels at the same time. I also love the ease of the reports. The most important thing is that as a teacher, I can log in and actually see what the kids are working on and even work them as a child on the board for the kids to see.

Elena Lee, teacher, Huntsville, Alabama, U.S.A.

A significant number of our 400+ children use it weekly for at least 30 minutes. Quite a few do 2 or 3 hours a week. Teachers report that those regularly using the product are making better progress than expected in their assessments, and they can then go onto more challenging concepts.

Peter Hillier, headteacher, Nottingham

So far IXL met all the learning needs I needed for my class. I like how the skills are grouped because this gives the kids an intense practice on the benchmarks. I also like the feedback IXL sends to me as a teacher showing how much time kids spend on IXL, what they did and what were their challenging areas. My students' grades have been affected very positively.

Makuena, teacher, Maseru, Lesotho

I have purchased many many apps, but I love IXL so much that the IXL app is really the only one I would like on my iPad!!

Julie Johnson, first grade teacher, Hendersonville, Tennessee, U.S.A.

I check daily for good apps for our iPads and iPods and came across your's today. I've used IXL before, but don't have membership. I signed in as a guest and used your coordinate grid questions with my kids (it's this week's 5th grade math unit). This is so easy to use, well done! I've seen a lot of apps in my various roles, but this is very useful and collect real-time data.

Sarah Emerling, special education and technology coach, Aiken, South Carolina, U.S.A.

Love the standards, practice, and pictures. I love the idea of IXL.

Liz Saul, 2nd grade teacher, Dublin, California, U.S.A.

It has made my grades better in a lot of ways. I enjoy math now!

Caleb J., student, DeKalb, Illinois, U.S.A.

I really like that the lessons start off easy and progressively get harder and it remediates if a student misses a question. My students get so much more practice and I can really see if they are getting a concept. I love IXL.

Deanna Kilburn, resource math teacher, U.S.A.

My class has already done 30,000 problems!! All of us LOVE IXL. When I was in 3rd grade I was in the top of my class for the division facts and it helped me so much I got straight A's that whole year.

Kirsten A., 5th grade student, Dumfries, Virginia, U.S.A.

My first graders loved IXL. They would always make excuses to do it, like, "Can I do IXL instead of silent read? It will help my grades!" They stood inside for recess and became quite advanced, some even teaching themselves multiplication! The awards meant so much to them, as I printed certificates on IXL to show their parents.

Adelina Shurkai-Molnese, 5th grade teacher, U.S.A.

Math is the subject I need practice in and our school got IXL. I was happy because I heard there were virtual prizes which made me excited. My grades have gone from C's to B's to A's, and I'm a straight A student now because of IXL.

Alex M., 5th grade student, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

IXL has helped me understand the problems I get wrong. I feel that it is not important to get the work done quickly, but to understand the problem. Whenever I get something wrong, IXL gives me a full detailed explanation. That helps me do better on tests and quizzes.

Alexandra, 8th grade student, State College, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Love the infinite math problems. Students need infinite practice in order to master math concepts. Love the reports feature so that students can quickly show me what they've accomplished. I love knowing my students' strengths and weaknesses. Overall, great program!

Alix Botts, tutor, Overland Park, Kansas, U.S.A.

I am an advanced 5th grade student; because of IXL I have been in advanced math for 4 years.

Allison H., 5th grade student, Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.

I think IXL is a great way for students, or really anyone, to learn! I love how the grades are split into categories and each grade goes over certain topics! I was hoping IXL could help me with triangles, and they did! It has affected my grade so much! I was getting better and better due to practice on this site, and it really improved my math grade!

Alyssa K., 7th grade student, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

I love everything about IXL: being able to measure individual student progress remotely, giving students early opportunities for success paired with later incentives to challenge themselves, having easy-to-search skills organized by level and topic, providing feedback to help students with incorrect answers, everything! My students’ grades have vastly improved with the ability to practice skills, get immediate feedback, and be evaluated on the accuracy of their answers in real time.

Amanda Barr, high school Math I teacher, New Bern, North Carolina, U.S.A.

My favorite feature of IXL is that it gives immediate feedback to students and walks them through how to solve the problem. My students are more motivated to do math problems, and I love when I hear "Yes!" while they are working. Their scores on our math assessments have improved, and I credit much of that to IXL.

Andrea Benge, 5th grade teacher, Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

My ELL students grew an average of 425% OVER what they were expected (predicted) to grow by NWEA in one year in only one semester!

Angelia Rosende, teacher and math coach, Basalt, Colorado, U.S.A.

I have varying levels of students in my classroom and some need a lot more practice than others and this allows for that. I also reward them for getting 100's and encourage doing the 'lower level' items because many of my students have gaps. It has been very beneficial.

Annora Quenzer, 8th grade special education teacher, Raymore, Missouri, U.S.A.

I’m a 7th grader and I have been using IXL for 3 years now. I really think that IXL helps. My favorite subjects on IXL are geometry and precalculus. In 4th grade I started using IXL and it has improved my grades a lot!

Aryonna B., 7th grade student, Lemon Grove, California, U.S.A.

I love IXL because it helps me prepare for hard tests at school! I love how it shows you what you did wrong instead of just giving you the answer.

Ash S., student, Westborough, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

I'm a student but I think this is the best way to learn because it has so many ways to practice and contains all the math I need. You go home and easily log in. I love IXL. I learned so many techniques that boosted my grade up to an A.

Asha H., high school freshman, Richfield, Minnesota, U.S.A.

IXL has had an astonishing effect on my ability to solve math problems and an amazing effect on my reading comprehension.

Ashley R., 8th grade student, Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.

I wanted to improve in English language arts and have improved over the years significantly. I really love your website, thanks for making it!

Atiksh C., student, Bartlett, Illinois, U.S.A.

I was hoping to get a better understanding of certain math problems that I do not understand well, and this website helped tremendously with just that. This is a very cool site and I'm glad my teacher showed it to me.

Audry C., high school senior, Steubenville, Ohio, U.S.A.

Students who consistently use IXL show significant learning gains in problem solving.

Bernice Stephens-Alleyne, retired math teacher, part-time in-school tutor, Homestead, Florida, U.S.A.

I'm in 6th grade and IXL is awesome. Last year I made horrible grades in math, but now I'm a super genius. Compared to last year, I have very high grades now.

Brandon F., 6th grade student, Oxford, Alabama, U.S.A.

I love IXL because it really gets my grades up in high school. I used to get all F's, but now I have all B's and one C.

Brendon, high school student, Jeffersonville, Indiana, U.S.A.

The dynamic practice environment is helping my students’ understanding to become more solid than a textbook alone could have achieved. This platform is also able to meet each student where they are, at their level of mastery, and help them excel.

Bridget Wilson, Algebra I teacher, Warrenton, Virginia, U.S.A.

First off, I LOVE IXL. I can't imagine teaching without it. It is a cornerstone of my daily lesson and is the perfect tool for differentiation...all my students get to practice on the skill at THEIR level! I can't say enough how much I love IXL and how beneficial it has been for my students and myself. For the most part, we use it everyday in class for math and several times a week for language arts, and I know that there's no way I'd be able to serve my students half as well without the aid of IXL!

Brittany Parrett, 5th grade teacher, Terre Haute, Indiana, U.S.A.

I love how when you get a problem wrong IXL tells you exactly how to do the problem so you can get the next problem right. It's also cool that you know right away if you got it right. With paper homework you don't know and keep doing it wrong. It's also really cool how you can always go back and improve your grade. Other programs make it so you can only work until a set due date and never get more practice. It is so much better this way.

Caroline M., 8th grade Integrated Algebra student, New York, U.S.A.

I like that IXL breaks skills down into baby steps and each skill builds on the last within a category. It helps students learn the skill. I believe IXL is helping them move forward on their skills. IXL also provides further lessons, when we finish a unit, for those who didn't master the skill.

Christi, 4th grade teacher, Strong, Maine, U.S.A.

My pre-algebra class uses IXL when we have 10 minutes at the end of class, as review for tests, in AIS class, and after school. They love trying to beat each other's scores, and earning ribbons before each other. Students who have a history of being very academically unsuccessful have done well on the last couple of quizzes because of the repeated practice on IXL. They want to stay on a topic because they have mastered it, without really realizing just how much extra practice they are doing to solidify their understanding into long-term memory. IXL has been very helpful with classroom management as well—as they are all working they tell each other to leave them alone and to not distract them because they do not want to make a mistake.

Connie Rasmussen, high school algebra teacher, Munnsville, New York, U.S.A.

I like how when you get a question right it says good things, and that's what makes me keep going, even if sometimes I get the wrong answer. IXL helped me a lot in math and my grades are just excellent.

Corey W., 7th grade student, Pace, Florida, U.S.A.

I love a lot of IXL's features. It is a very exciting platform that motivates students and challenges them to understand the material. Students in my school have had their grades improve due to the extra practice they receive through IXL.

Dan Van der Vieren, 6th-8th grade teacher, Weldona, Colorado, U.S.A.

I love that there is an endless supply of problems that students can work through and that they are leveled. I like how my students work towards a goal and the problems progressively get more challenging, but will drop them down if they are having trouble. I feel that it has significantly helped them prepare for assessments and review skills.

Danni Holyst, high school math interventionist and honors teacher, New Britain, Connecticut, U.S.A.

I am an alternative education teacher in a math lab setting that allows me to provide plenty of one-on-one instruction. IXL is ideal for my teaching/learning environment. My students' skills most often span two levels and IXL allows for learning at whatever level is appropriate at the time. It's wonderful!

Debbi E. Walcker, alternative education math lab teacher, Woodinville, Washington, U.S.A.

I like the reports, how the students can easily find where they left off, and that if they make a mistake they are shown how to do it and the correct answer.

Denise Pierro, 1st grade teacher, Kirtland, New Mexico, U.S.A.

Being in high school is quite difficult but your site has helped me to improve. My grade went up in middle school and it’s still going up in high school by 15%.

Dennis K., 9th grade student, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

I need to improve, but IXL is helping! I was a D+ and now I'm a C+, and I'm sure IXL helped a lot in math! I cannot wait to get an A!

Ellie W., student, U.S.A.

IXL is awesome. It has really helped me with math. I love it!

Emily A., student, Hohenwald, Tennessee, U.S.A.

I love how well lessons stay in my head after I have mastered them; I perfectly remember lessons I had completed in the very beginning of 7th grade! I like the game board feature as well because it is a calm push to continue studying.

Erazmas V., 8th grade student, New York, New York, U.S.A.

Our students improve their grades every time they use IXL.

Fernanda Ramos Kuzuhara, math, physics, and chemistry tutor, Des Plaines, Illinois, U.S.A.

The students enjoy choosing their own skills to practice with, and I like to use it with the whole class when we need to practice particular skills. They like to practice on IXL, so that means they will see more success!

Ginger Hunt, 1st and 2nd grade teacher, Fullerton, California, U.S.A.

I think IXL has just what I need. My favorite features are the prizes (of course), being able to see how I am progressing and my weaknesses, and seeing what skills I have mastered.

Hannah T., 6th grade student, Round Rock, Texas, U.S.A.

IXL has become my favorite website to learn math and English. Thank you for this website!

Howon Kim, 9th grade student, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

I find IXL really fun and it is a good site to use. I am in 5th grade and I use this site a lot. One day my teacher showed IXL to my class and I have been using it ever since.

Isabelle B., 5th grade student, Broadway, Virginia, U.S.A.

My students are working harder than they have worked all year. My students are logging in before and after school to complete more problems. They are also begging their other teachers to allow them to go to computer rooms to work on IXL whenever those classes have down time. I have never seen them beg to work on math before!

Jacqueline Lewis, 9th grade Algebra 1 teacher, Enterprise, Mississippi, U.S.A.

My teacher assigned us IXL so I was kind of hoping it would help me in math. I strongly believe that IXL has helped me with my knowledge for this year and years to come.

Jade S., 7th grade student, Douglas, Georgia, U.S.A.

Wow, I am so impressed by how much IXL has taught me. I have been using the program since I was 8 years old, and in three years, this program has already added new grades that I like to challenge myself with, like Algebra I & II and Geometry. I am really excited to start using the language arts portion of IXL. I used IXL, I'm using IXL, and I will use IXL. I might even pass it on to my children and see how much it improved over the years. My favorite IXL features are the awards and the reports. I think that the awards motivate younger children to stay with IXL until they learn that you don't need a sticker to learn, you actually want to!

Jaxon K., student, Pompano Beach, Florida, U.S.A.

I love the data and all the reports. I just began using the program and I'm so excited to see the data/progress my students will make. This program is like no other. It’s amazing!

Jennifer Bender, 1st grade teacher, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

My favorite feature is how if I get a problem wrong, IXL shows me how to properly do it. My grades are getting better and increasing my hopes of advancing without ever failing. IXL is a great way to practice your math and it actually feel like it’s a game!

Jordan B., 3rd grade student, Keizer, Oregon, U.S.A.

I really wanted to learn about stuff that might help for gifted and talented courses and help me review the previous year’s coursework. I have gotten straight A's every single time I used this program. I love this program; it has helped many people in my family.

Joselyn, 8th grade student, Frisco, Texas, U.S.A.

I love the immediate feedback my students get with the explanation of how to fix the error they made.

Joy Alston, 7th grade math teacher and parent, Mount Holly, North Carolina, U.S.A.

IXL has had a huge impact on my grades. In math I used to get D's and C's. After I started using IXL, I got A's. I improved so much my teacher thought I was getting the answers from someone else. I showed her IXL and she got the whole class an account because I told her it would really help.

Kae'Lani, 5th grade student, Vancouver, Washington, U.S.A.

I have seen huge growth in all of my students. What is great is that all of my students are growing. My students who started testing at a 2nd grade level are now doing 4th grade skills, and my students who were testing at an 8th grade level are now doing algebra-level skills. We use IXL for 30 minutes every day and I can trust that every student is growing.

Katrina Musco, 6th grade teacher, San Jose, California, U.S.A.

I like how there are no gimmicks or distractions. It helps me to learn and get less impatient when it's straightforward. IXL has made things easier to understand.

Kaysie S., student, Sarasota, Florida, U.S.A.

I was hoping that IXL could help me improve in math, specifically in geometry and fractions, but it also helped me with language arts. I like the awards. It helps kids want to earn more and show their friends and compete against each other. It also helps kids feel good because they earned something by doing well.

Keona L., 5th grade student, Cupertino, California, U.S.A.

I love IXL, like really love it. I just learned point-slope form for linear graphs. I was having trouble so I went on IXL, mastered the skill, and now I am great at it. I also like doing other skills just for the awards. My math grade and overall math skills improved with IXL.

Kevin L., 7th grade student, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

This has been tremendously beneficial for my students, and parents love it.

Kim Garvin, 4th grade math teacher, Vidalia, Georgia, U.S.A.

How could I even begin to list my favorite features; not having to grade assignments, instant student feedback, review of graded results, remediation using problems from previous grades if necessary, correlation to standards, and as much repetition as the student needs to "get" the concept. Gaps are being filled. IXL puts learning completely in the hands of the student.

Kris Chapin, high school math teacher, Anderson, Indiana, U.S.A.

I love how my students can get automatic feedback, can work on other grade level material, and can see many different types of questions instead of doing worksheets.

Kristan LeFave, 5th grade special education teacher, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.

I love IXL. It has helped me a lot and my teachers have told me that I have improved greatly.

Kyra, student, Hermosa, South Dakota, U.S.A.

I am a 9th grade math teacher. IXL has been so helpful to my students the past two years! At the end of every year, I give a survey to my students and they consistently say IXL helped them succeed. I'm definitely an advocate for IXL! It has definitely boosted performance and understanding. My students do not always like practicing math, as they are 15 years old, but they can all say that IXL has boosted their performance, which they appreciate in the end.

Laney Gautreau, 9th grade teacher, St. Amant, Louisiana, U.S.A.

My students have stayed focused! IXL has been wonderful for the autistic students. This is the program I prefer; the other programs have too much ‘bling’ and don’t track against state standards. This is great for IEPs.

Linda Withem, pre-K–4th grade special education teacher, Hooks, Texas, U.S.A.

My students need repeated repetition for mastery and IXL provides them with that repetition in a way that is fun. I definitely see a boost in confidence and an improvement in students' scores and fluency within problem solving.

Lisa Clark, 4th grade teacher, Bronx, New York, U.S.A.

I first did IXL for school because it was homework, but then I was on it one day and my little sister asked what I was doing and I told her I was doing IXL. She said, 'I want to try.' I got her on a kindergarten skill and it was too easy so I told her to try 1st grade. Now she comes up to me and asks if she can do it. She also works towards prizes and it is been amazing how good she is getting!

Maddie B., 5th grade student, Knoxville, Tennessee, U.S.A.

I am a special education teacher at two elementary schools. I work with students who are behind grade level or struggle with foundational skills. I like the differences in approaches to math IXL offers because it meets a lot of different learning styles.

Maurice Falls, special education teacher, Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A.

Using IXL, my grades have gone from below average to above average. I especially love the awards because they provide motivation. Doing more problems solves the mystery of what's under each square of the gameboard.

Melissa T., 8th grade student, Eckert, Colorado, U.S.A.

I think that it’s great that there are step-by-step solutions for every problem. I also really appreciate the algorithm for question generation. IXL is a wonderful way to differentiate. The timer is great as it is a very concrete way to show a student that they need to slow down to prevent careless errors. When I point out that they answered 30 items in 2 minutes (a rate of 1 every 4 seconds), it’s not really hard to get them to see that's probably the reason why they made mistakes.

Michael Moffre, 7th grade math teacher, Latham, New York, U.S.A.

I am a 6th grader; I was struggling in English and my reading grades climbed from 60 to 100 in a week.

Mike, 6th grade student, New York City, New York, U.S.A.

I am a high school special education teacher and I brought IXL to our high performing district. Most of my students have significant learning needs and IXL’s material is wonderful. Students enjoy prizes and are motivated to meet their goals. I assign one hour of practice a week and many students practice much more.

Nikki Pivovar, high school special education teacher, New Canaan, Connecticut, U.S.A.

I’m a 7th grade student and this is my favorite educational website. IXL keeps me organized (no mess or papers with the possibility of getting lost), it easily tells me how well I do, and it helps me improve by showing me what I did wrong if I make a mistake. I think my grades have improved since I started IXL.

Owen O., 7th grade student, Camden, Ohio, U.S.A.

I love all your features! I've been on IXL practically my whole life and you guys are the reason I am where I am. IXL helped me become an above average fifth grader! Thanks so much!

Paige, 5th grade student, Auburn, Washington, U.S.A.

My students are motivated to complete more and more problems to get to that SmartScore of a 100, and they are more focused on their work!

Peter Mesh, 5th grade teacher, Wynantskill, New York, U.S.A.

I love the straightforward explanations given when students miss a problem and I love the layout of the site. I have seen a direct relationship between student use of IXL and an increase in their grades.

Quincy, high school math teacher, Vancouver, Washington, U.S.A.

I wanted IXL to help me with math. It was just amazing! The problems are fun and the rewards are nice. I love this website and I strongly recommend it to everyone. IXL has helped me understand things I didn't understand in class.

Rajveersing R., 5th grade student, Dublin, California, U.S.A.

One of my favorite IXL features is the amount of effort IXL puts into making sure problems do not repeat. Another is showing how and why we got a problem wrong. IXL has helped me majorly in school and has taught me numerous problem solving skills in math.

Rithvik C., 8th grade student, North Brunswick, New Jersey, U.S.A.

The ribbon and medal reward system is very effective in providing my students with the motivation to work through skills. Most students really enjoy showing me what they've earned. That is especially true for students who struggle with algebra. IXL is also very user friendly. I rarely have students come to me for help with the interface.

Robert Lopez, high school algebra teacher, Whittier, California, U.S.A.

I love using IXL as a resource in my classroom and more importantly, my students love it! I have used it for about five to six years. The kids love keeping track of the skills they've mastered and the awards they've earned. The students love the different types of questions and it prepares them for state assessments. My students are extremely engaged in math practice through this program. They are excited to practice math at school and at home with this site and with this increased engagement comes more learning.

Ryan Walker, 2nd and 3rd grade math teacher, Max Meadows, Virginia, U.S.A.

I am a student in 8th grade and am enjoying using IXL. It has helped me with my grades in math, and helped me get a 100% on my quiz. IXL helped bring my grade up in math substantially.

Safet S., 8th grade student, Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.

IXL is the most effective tool I have ever used in education. There is no better way to prepare my students for the all of the high stakes tests that are part of the educational landscape. I have incorporated IXL into my daily math lessons. IXL is a great differentiation and reinforcement tool. I would recommend this tool to any educator looking for an effective way to boost their test scores and accelerate student achievement!

Scott Mayes, 2nd grade teacher, Roscommon, Michigan, U.S.A.

I am a student who works on IXL at home and I think IXL is awesome! I am in 4th grade and IXL has helped me a lot in my schoolwork. IXL is awesome because it helps me a lot and is a lot of fun at the same time.

Shruti, student, Parma Heights, Ohio, U.S.A.

My favorite IXL features are how when you get an answer wrong, it doesn't just leave you wondering “what was the real answer?” or “I wonder what I did wrong?” It shows you step-by-step how to fix the mistake. I personally think that's great! I just wanted to say how much IXL has changed my performance in mathematics. Going from C+'s to straight A+'s in two or three months, just wow!

Sophia H., student, Delaware, U.S.A.

The read aloud voice is great for young learners to practice math independently.

Sue Stanley, kindergarten teacher, Yucaipa, California, U.S.A.

I am a student in 5th grade and have been using IXL since 3rd grade. I like that math and language arts are neatly organized and help me easily practice a topic. I also like when IXL explains to me why I get a problem wrong.

Tasfia, 5th grade student, Woodbridge, Virginia, U.S.A.

My favorite features are instant feedback (for teachers and students) and creative and thorough practice activities that inspire me to rethink how I teach and introduce concepts.

Thomas Marino, math teacher, Winchester, Virgina, U.S.A.

My school just purchased a site membership for both math and language arts and it has been amazing! It is so much better than paper assignments, I get immediate feedback and data without having to grade and hunt down missing papers. When my kids are struggling, I know to pull them, help them, and keep them on easier skills. The kids that are excelling are able to move ahead and be challenged!

Valerie Wygant, 3rd grade math teacher, Chula Vista, California, U.S.A.

I feel that students are mastering skills more quickly because they are receiving and processing instant feedback on their incorrect responses.

David Arnold, math teacher, Bangkok, Thailand

I was very weak in maths, but ever since I started studying basic maths from IXL I have become one of the best mathematicians in my school. My teacher was so surprised about my improvement in the subject. I recommend IXL to parents, teachers, students, and all who have the desire to learn mathematics.

Eric Nii Tetteh, student, Awutu-Bawjiase, Bawjiase, Ghana

IXL helped me to do math better and it makes me feel smarter. IXL helps you think better and is a great place to learn.

Mohammed M. grade 7 student, Jeddah, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

IXL has increased my passion for maths, improving my mathematics knowledge and making me practice with love and interest.

Precious S., grade 10 student, Dindela, Limpopo, South Africa
