What's the point of running an educational website, when it is all repetitive?
Type of site: School website
Language: Multi-languages
Date of launch: 2009
Status: Active.


XtraMath is a website that was released in 2009. It is a school website. It is being used in elementary schools and sometimes middle schools. It is designed to help students master their basic math facts. Students start from addition facts and work their way up to division. Mr. C is the teacher (in English language, as the teachers vary in different languages).

Why It's Rotten

  1. When you answer your math questions (mainly in "Race The Teacher"), you only get three seconds to answer (the adult can change the timer, but 10 seconds is the maximum limit). Let us take our time! Math is not a race!
  2. Mr. C (the "teacher" on this site) is rather annoying. He is often distracting and makes sad faces when beaten in "Race The Teacher." Same can be said with the other representatives. (Though this can be turned off.)
  3. This isn't any bad school program, it's one of the worst school programs. Some people claim that this is worse than algebra homework.
  4. It is easy to type the wrong answer by accident due to rushing when trying to find the keys.
  5. Race The Teacher does not even help its students when getting to the next level.
  6. Users only get one chance a day to boost up their scores (Progress Quiz) and multiple chances to ruin them (Progress Quiz and Race The Teacher).
  7. Unfair and encourages perfection. For instance, when doing 30 problems in "Race The Teacher", getting 29 answers right in a row out of 30 gives the student a bad score.
  8. Even though Common Sense Media is inaccurate most of the time, the site's negative reviews for XtraMath are actually extremely accurate.
  9. Little kids (presumably around elementary school age) usually like math. But when they do XtraMath, they turn from math lovers into math haters.
  10. If you don't get at least 1 smiley face in Race The Teacher, you have to do the race four more times.

I hated this website. I remembered getting annoyed at Race The Teacher because it literally tried to make math a race. Again, you are supposed to take time with math, not try to answer something in 3 seconds.

Thanks to my school's sanity, we don't use this trash; we learn Math traditionally. We use pen and paper to solve exercises. There was no time when we had to use this waste of bandwidth in my entire 10-year school career. I'm a 10th grader by the way so this "educational" app is useless trash anyways.

If XtraMath uses Flash, it should be shut down on December 2020. If it uses HTML5, tough luck. Haven't tried it but will not try it and I discourage people from trying it.

As always, Math is not a race.

race the teacher sounds like its the math version of that one level in super mario 3d world where you have to chase the goal pole except you have 3-10 seconds to do it instead of 100
