As an elementary teacher I found AAA math website very useful. I plan to use AAA Math practice and drill games with my students as a way to reinforce the skills we learned. The first concept I will teach my students using the website is the concept of money recognition and counting. It is fairly difficult for young children to grasp the concept of money. Not only they have to be able to recognize the coins and they value but they also have to learn how to count by 5s, 10s, and 25s. This websites concept explanations, models and skills building games are well written in language comprehensible to younger students. I found this website educationally significant and it will be a part of my regular classroom learning as a teaching-learning tool. The only thing I would like the authors to think about is to offer the possibility to set up the level of difficulty for each skill practice. For example, on the page Adding Dimes, Nickels, and Pennies, the counting game starts with adding together 9 nickels, 9 dimes, and 17 pennies. These numbers seems to be a little high for beginners. It would be better, if the user or the instructor could set up the number of coins to be used. Technical Remarks: AAA Math contains hundreds of basic math skills. Each page has an explanation and interactive practice. The navigation through the website is very user-friendly. The user can browse by Grade School Level or Math Topics. There are also Index of Exercises and Table of Contents. The only technical note I have is to include a search engine to search through the website by a keyword. I did not encounter any technical problems during my work with AAA math.
