Online Learning Tool: IXL - Math and English


We have used this tool in our district for a few years now. IXL offers standards-aligned practice and curriculum for grades K-12. I witnessed a lot of student success with this tool. IXL is not a free tool, but has been well worth it according to many of the teachers using IXL.

This tool works on virtually any device with a web browser and internet access.

- Wide variety of question types to engage students

Math



More than 3,300 standards-aligned skills provide comprehensive coverage of pre-K through 12th grade math. Unlimited questions and no templates mean students can practice, review, and master a skill—and never see the same question twice. From skip-counting with pictures to graphing quadratic functions, IXL's interactive question types bring the joy of learning to students’ fingertips.



English Language Arts



Enter a new era of grammar instruction with IXL’s English language arts program for grades 2–12.
