Blast Off! is a favorite practice tool for mature and adult learners that never learned math facts. They prefer it because it is anywhere, anytime, and any device learning letting them practice with tablets and phones as well as computers.
Students appreciate the convenience of pulling out their phone anywhere and anytime practicing during free moments between classes, while waiting at the doctor’s office, standing inline or even right before turning in for the evening.
Blast Off! is also a diagnostic tool for learners from the 3rd grade to adult.
Teachers wanting to know which facts are unknown to students could never identify this information through flash cards or mad minutes.
By the time they collect and grade this information and return it to the student for practice, it is no longer applicable because student knowledge about facts is dynamic. That is actually good news.
We hope the use of facts will increase known facts. However…
Only practice of known math facts will increase rapid recall of facts to the frontal lobes.
Identifying which facts to practice in games, activities, and study is the only way to target unknown facts.
Blast Off! will identify unknown facts in less than ten minutes without taxing the teacher’s time!
