It's a perfect complement to book and I use it for homework, smaller tests and challenge for strong pupils. It really saves a lot of time for me and after using it a while I don't know how to manage without it.

Magma Math has simplified my work as a math teacher. I can now differentiate my teaching for a class with just a few clicks. In Magma Math, you can also see students' work in real-time, which means I can easily see where I need to step in and provide support during the lesson. I am also very pleased with Magma's summaries at the individual and class levels. They allow me to easily follow up on individuals' and the class's results.

It is a wonderful instructional math tool that puts the emphasis on student work rather than the solution.

Since I started using Magma in my classes I know that I teach my students what they need to instead of what I think they need. I also feel that my students have better knowledge of their own knowlegde in math. Magma has increased a lot of students confident in math and all of them think it is more fun doing math on Magma than in the ordinary book. Magma has also opened alot of oppertunities fot me as a teacher. I can work with math in more varius ways, one exampel is working with the calculations the students make in a lesson and using them to talk more math in the classroom.

I like the interface and the ability to share student work anonymously; however, the limited amount of questions keeps me from using Magma Math more frequently. Otherwise, it's a great product!

Magma Math allows for immediate mathematical data from students. It helps in identifying common gaps in learning seen within the class as a whole and also specific gaps in learning from individual students. Magma Math is also highly useful for formative and summative assessments. Being able to download and use libraries from different curriculum also greatly adds to the experience.

My students are loving being able to show their work on the screen. I have seen increased engagement and understanding since they get to work the problem several times until they get it right.

Magma Math has been a great asset to my classroom. So often technological platforms that incorporate math do so on a very thin layer. There is usually a question with a very precise answer and kids know wether they got it wrong. Magma Math provides so much more than this. In this program students are engaged consistently. They have to show all their work before they can submit an answer, and every students work/progress can be accessed using a heat map. Not only are you able to access a students progress in terms of success with the topic but you can play back students work. Allowing you to show the whole class how a student arrived at their answer and even compare how another student may have used a different skill to arrive at the same answer. I would strongly encourage this platform to any educator teaching math because it takes an interactive approach that most mathematical programs do not. Since using this program my students consistently ask to go on the ipads and use Magma Math. When the period is coming to an end they get frustrated that it is time to close up and put it away. They want to sit and do more math!, which from some students is unheard of. It is flexible in its material, there is an array of questions to choose from and you can even add your own questions in to better serve your classrooms needs.

Imagine a classroom where mathematical concepts come to life, where each student is empowered to explore, learn, and excel at their own pace. This vision has become a reality with Magma, as it seamlessly integrates into our curriculum, enriching our mathematical experience beyond measure.

My students and I have enjoyed implementing Magma Math into our math lessons. It is engaging, fun, and is a great way to review daily math concepts. I love how I can group students by levels and choose a variety of concepts. It also follows all our Oklahoma standards. I will continue to implement Magma Math daily within our lessons.

Magma is the best digital way to learn mathematics together and individually in the classroom. With the help of Magma, I as a teacher can easily create opportunities to discuss mathematics based on students' own solutions. I also gain a good insight into how students solve tasks, who needs support, and what the group needs to progress. The analysis material is comprehensive and the number of tasks to choose from is extensive.

This is the best thing that happened to the subject in schools for quite some time! It is so easy to monitor, manage och review all my students! It saves me a lot of time, so I can make better assignments to my students at their level. It is so helpful when I can make small assignments to make att quick-check, to see if the students understands. You can make it as a startup from the last lesson, or as a exitticket. As it is autocorrecting, you just have to look it through quickly to see their calculations. My homeworks are from tuesday to tuesday, and they open and close by themselves. So smart! I really love Magma, since it´s made my work so much more efficient! Try for yourselves, you won't regret it!

There are so many amazing features to Magma Math. It is the best tool for formative assessment that I have used. The immediate feedback is so beneficial as students are learning math content. Students are encouraged to show their work and their thinking. It provides the teacher with lots of great feedback so lessons can be adjusted to students needs. There are so many great math questions already included that are split into levels. The part I love most is that I can personalize any of the assessment by entering my own questions so I am never limited. Magma math is not another curriculum it is a supplement that fits nicely into any classroom with lots of benefits for both the students and the teachers.

Very good for all my students!
