School Yourself

School Yourself

School Yourself is a mathematics website based on doing math, not on watching an instructor do math. Their unique interactive lessons cover math subjects ranging from algebra, geometry, and trigonometry to precalculus and calculus. As you go through the lessons, their algorithms quietly crunch numbers and figure out where students need help the most, or whether they should breeze right through to more advanced material.

Because of their privacy policy, students should be 18 or older in order to sign up.

Prodigy Math Game

Prodigy Math Game

The Prodigy Math Game is well-known amongst educators for its engaging math-based games. Further, its privacy policy allows for teachers to enroll students with just first and last name.

If you choose to use it, enter your students’ first names, then give them all a generic last name. You could go with something like “Smith”, or you could use the name of your school “Blakely” or “Sutherland”. This protects their privacy as no other information will be collected with respect to the students.
