Good use of MathXL

I believe MathXL should be an infrequent supplemental tool in a math classroom. I have seen the system being used frequently and I have witnessed students getting bored, frustrated or disengaged and so they just don’t do the work. Since this program is linked to Pearson Educator textbooks, it should be used once or twice a week to refresh skills and assess students’ grasp. Using it too frequently, or in place of real teaching can leave students struggling. However, if it is an activity to look forward to a few times a week, I believe students will be more engaged.
