    We need recommendations of math sites/software that will allow students to practice math skills (middle school level preferred) where a teacher can generate reports and set up classrooms.

    Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

    I love mangahigh!! That was exactly what I was looking for. I can't believe it's free. The lessons are easy to follow, simple, provide immedieate feedback and I can check their progress. I have already assigned some homework from this site.

    My school just bought Study Island. I hate to say it but I don't think it's that good. I don't think it provides easty to follow lessons that my students can follow and the topics are not broken down by skill.

    It looks like I can create my own bank of questions but I can see this as being very time consuming. Not what I was looking for.

    Maybe I'm new and I don't know much about Study Island since I'm just exploring it right now but if you have used it let me know how it works for you.

    Ehh it's not you...I'm not too impressed either; however, other math teachers I know love it. We are in the process of trying to acquire ixl or usa test prep as they are based more on GA standards and are easier to break down into mini-concepts based on the standards. I was just trying to throw ideas out there. ;)

    My assistant principal was the one who highly recommended it. Well, it was, honestly, the cheapest of all and we didn't have much of a budget.

    YEAH! Last year they only offered a limited trial but it was something you had to pay for...this year they offered it for free! It will probably change back in the future, but happy you're enjoying it now! Let's Fung-Tei!!! :)
