Tried It Tuesday {Adapted Mind}

Happy Tuesday! I am leaving this Tried It Tuesday link up open for two weeks.
Hope you have a great week!
It's Time for Tried It Tuesday! 
What have you tried at school or home?
If you've never linked up with Tried It Tuesday, just link up any idea school or home related and what worked or didn't work. Simple! 
My Tried It:
Adapted Mind
My district purchased a subscription to Adapted Mind this year.
There is a free 30 day trial subscription to check out and test the website.

Here is a YouTube introduction clip:

My students started out by taking a pretest. Then, Adapted Mind automatically differentiates each student's lessons and practice based on their individual abilities. I have been using Adapted Mind the past two weeks during Math Workshop for "at your seat" work. The students love it because they are on the iPads or laptops for "at your seat!".
Each day I get emails for the student progress. I don't always open them, but it is a good feature. 
It is addressed to the parent so I think my email is set up as the parent on all students but that could be changed.
A sample email:
 When you click to see problems missed, a screen like this shows:
There are also free worksheets and problems offered on the site. Just scroll down on the home page.
 If I don't want my students to work on "smart practice" they can work on any 4th grade skills that I choose to have them work on. This is just one screen shot of some 4th grade skills.
One of the students favorite parts of the website is that they earn "badges" as they progress through their work. Students are always commenting on what badges they have earned.
Check out the website if you have a spare moment. Even if you don't get a membership, you might find something useful to use in the free section!


  1. This looks great! Even though I don't teach math, I am sure I could use this with my sons. I do wish there was something like this for writing though... :)

  2. Your Math idea looks great! We have used similar programs, maybe called Discovery Island. I no longer teach math, but I will mention this to my principal. Thanks for the linky- I had a post about pancakes I added!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  3. Thanks so much for hosting this link-up! This is my first time linking up with you and I'm always excited to find new link-ups!!


  4. This looks very similar to Moby Math, which we use at our school. :) Hope all is well with you!!

  5. This program looks cool! I'll have to look into it. We are always looking for ways for the kids to practice math! Thanks!

  6. This looks great - I will need to check this out!
