ALSC (The Association for Library Service to Children ) Announces MathSlice.com as one of the Exceptional Web Sites for Children (News Link)
|I literally stumbled upon your site while searching for math problems for my son. As well as a parent, I'm a 4th grade teacher in Houston, Texas. After exploring your site with my son, I was so excited to introduce it to my students the next day. I took them to the computer lab and got them all set up to take one of your mock math tests. I thought they would be a little disappointed because it didn't appear to be a video game, but they LOVED it. They really liked the fact they could see their scores and exactly which ones they missed. Afterwards, they had big smiles on their faces and couldn't stop telling me how much more fun they had doing that than paper and pencil assignments. Later in the day, I shared the site with my fellow 4th grade teachers and administrators. They too were very impressed.
I want to thank you so much for creating such a FANTASTIC site.
My students really enjoy the activities in Mathslice- especially Math Millionaire. It is interesting to listen and watch all the learning that is going on when all 20 students are on the laptops working and having fun! Thanks for such a wonderful site for students and teachers to use!

I like the format of your math tests for 3rd Grade, however, the grammar
needs some work. Also, it includes use of negative numbers which 3rd
grade does not do, at least not in Texas!
Thank you for the awesome practices. It's tough to find good word
problem practice online.

This site is fabulous. It provides me with great tools to use in reviewing with my daughters.
I want to thank you for all the work that you have put into Mathslice so my students can improve goals that they not yet mastered. They are willing to work on math for longer periods of time and love the immediate feedback for correct responses. They always want to print their 100% papers to show their parents. I've even told our special education director about Mathslice so she could spread the word!! Thanks again, you have made math more manageable for both me and my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade special services students.

First of all I want to thank you for all the time it took to put this site together. I too like many other teachers and parents just stumbled on to your website. It was a blessing to find you! I was just looking for some extra telling time and rounding practice for some of my struggling math students and WOW, did I find it! The first time I put a child on to your site for individual on-line practice. Then as I found more time to explore, I found the real gold-mine--3rd grade mock tests!! I took my whole class to our computer lab today and everyone took the first test and the great part about it was that I didn't have to grade anything! That was so great for the kids and myself to get immediate feedback!! I have shared my experience with all of my 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade colleagues. We appreciate you!! Thank you so much!! Keep up the great work!!

So many Maths sites now. Thought I'd have a glance at mathslice. Tried smart guess & though a simple idea it appealed to my simple mind. Quick competition with oneself. Will use with my year 7 low ability class. They will like it
