Did you use or know of a website that has students practice different math operations and then tracks the students progress?

Not sure what you want to practice Michelle.

Is Sumdog of any interest?
There is a program that our district uses called Fastmath. We just incorporated it this year. It assesses individual student's knowledge of math facts and identifies those that need practice and develops an individual program for each student to practice with. There is specific and immediate tracking of what each student has accomplished on the program in real-time.
There is apparently a similar program called PAT Algebra tutor... I haven't tried it yet... Developed by ACT-R group...
App-titude Learning has an online assessment tool that tracks student progress through their Maths iPod Apps. See their website at www.apptitude.com.au or contact john@app-titude.com.au for further info

We use IXL.com. This site offers online practice and is standards based according to your state. You click on your state and the standards for every grade (up through 8th grade) for your state are already organized for you. You get usage info (how many minutes practiced, how many problems attempted), and kids earn virtual prizes as they complete a topic (a campfire picture that glows and moves, a soccerball icon, etc), among other things.


You do have to pay for it, but it seems a nominal fee for individuals. Not sure what the classroom/school licenses look like. You can try it for free as a visitor for, I think, 30 minute periods at a time.

Have you tried xtramath.org or sumdog.com? xtramath starts with addition and students move through subtraction, multiplication and division. Both of these sites are free, but sumdog offers to provide tracking for a price.

I mentioned sumdog in my post above - since then I have written these instructions for students (on a new blog for students).

Also seriously worthy of a mention is Manga High - not just for the games but the Prodigi Quizzes - for schools with an account (and Manga High is now completely free in many countries). Teachers can set challenges for their students and see who has tried what. I included it in my Top >10 Mathematics websites recently. Scroll down to Games.

Here is what some of my students thought!
