How is this different from IXL or other math apps?

“I developed the packets based on my own experience with my son and what I’ve observed with students work during the summer.  I’ve found that younger children (usually younger than 8th grade) can sit in front of a computer with IXL or other math apps but get very little done.  IXL tends to have an encyclopedic structure (“Here is the entire curriculum of math.  You choose….”) that doesn’t lead students through learning objectives.  If a student is without supervision, they tend not to absorb that much.
In addition, online learning tends to have a very structured approach to math.  Math skills and topics are in silos and tend not to be integrated into a single problem.  My packets tend to be heavy in mathematical thinking and reasoning skills and integrate various math topics.
Mathitude materials are more specifically designed to match school curriculum along with providing math that is challenging and encourages lifetime math engagement.”
