Usage: I would use it to provide extra practice and remediation for students in 6th. grade who need Common Core standards based instruction. I would also use it in a total classroom environment to review and prepare for assesments.
Strengths: It requires students to enter answers, converts finger drawn answers to text and incorporates dragging and dropping etc. Meet the new CC testing strategies.
Verdict: Our school does not have any way to track individual student progress but it would give me the ability to do so in my own classroom. It will also help provide documentation of student growth as required by the new teacher evaluation model requirements in the Washington State.application math5 / 5Teacher in Elementary School reviews myBlee Math and share with EdSurge community

Usage: I have used Lymboo Math, for which I have a free subscription during the school year. I would definitely switch because myBlee Math better matches my Singapore curriculum. I like the virtual manipulatives and other pictorial representations of match problems that better support conceptual understanding.
Strengths: It provides good pictorial models of math problems. Great for increasing conceptual understanding. Model use is an area of weakness with our students so it would provide more opportunities for students to work with models in an engaging way.application math5 / 5

ISTP conducted a two-month pilot using myBlee Math across all grades of the elementary school. The teachers used myBlee Math in the classrooms on a regular basis. After two months, teachers want to continue using myBlee Math next year. It was therefore decided that myBlee Math would be our main digital educational tool for elementary math. Now myBlee Math has been used across all grades in all classrooms for more than one year. Teachers cannot imagine teaching without the support of myBlee Math and noticed stronger progress of students with myBlee Math.application math5 / 5Katherine D., Mary Lillard Intermediate School, SPED Department Chair, 5th Grade ELA/MATH Co-Teach/Fundamentals
Our students love myBlee Math! We have students with a wide range of abilities and often use myBlee Math for stations where students can work at their own level and pace. Students benefit from the imbedded multi-sensory activities. My favorite response from my students (that I hear often) is: “Oh, I get it now!”
We frequently have other teachers and district staff observing our classes and they are impressed with the app and how engaged the students are using it. Thank you for this wonderful learning platform.application math5 / 5Kim H., 1st grade Teacher – Thorpe Gordon Elementary
I was able to use myBlee Math for summer school with my first graders and they loved it!! They would get the choice of myBlee Math or Teach Me Math during Math Workshop and 9 times out of 10 they chose myBlee Math!! They loved how they earned trophies & and puzzle pieces!!
Now that I am off for a few weeks I have let my 6 year old and my 10 year old use myBlee Math and they both LOVE it!!! I sometimes find them on their iPads playing myBlee Math rather than Minecraft or other games they have on the iPad!!!application math5 / 5Sherry G., 5th Grade – McKissick Elementary School
2014-2015 was the first school year I used myBlee Math and I LOVE it! myBlee Math teaches the concept, visually shows the process, and then gives students different levels of practice until the skill is mastered. Additionally, myBlee Math will stop a student when the question is incorrect to reteach the concept. This way, the student may NOT move on until the question is correct, with the guided help of the program of course. This is so much better than students continually getting answers wrong over and over. It is like having another teacher in the classroom. Furthermore, the mathematical test scores of my students moved up. Sixteen out of eighteen students grew by double digits for the school year. Average growth is 6 points per student. My class had an average growth of 15 points per student! I just can’t say enough about myBlee Math and how amazing it is for this technological generation.application math5 / 5Ellen F., Jackson County, Georgia
My third, fourth, and fifth grade math students began using myBlee Math during the 2014-2015 school year. Almost immediately, I noticed an excitement about math that wasn’t there before. I usually have a full classroom of students volunteering to work on math 30 minutes or more before school actually begins! myBlee Math motivates learners to succeed by allowing them to work on their own level at their own pace and offering immediate feedback on their work. My students love the interactivity this program offers.
I feel that myBlee Math has allowed me to improve my effectiveness in the classroom as well. I am more able to work with small groups or individuals knowing that the other students are on-task and learning, evident by their self-motivation. Additionally, when students are motivated by their own success, behavior problems disappear. My administrators and I are so excited about my students’ continual academic growth and performance!
Thank you myBlee Math!application math5 / 5Darla S., 3rd Grade Franklin Elementary
I first started using myBlee Math after hearing about it on social media. I tried the free parent version first. I found that the students loved it and used up the free minutes quickly. This year I had a trial period for my classroom and my students thoroughly enjoy using it. It is often the app that they use when we have centers or even during recess. Students and parents ask about the app so they can use it at home as well. It truly has helped my students in Math.application math5 / 5Deanna M., Intermediate School Teacher – North Marion School District
My students, especially my ELL students, are truly learning with your app. I am impressed with your product and your customer service as well. Thank you for the opportunity to pilot your app. My students have said, “This is the best math app we have ever tried.”application math5 / 5
