Why did the student divide sin by tan? Just cos!

Now every geometry student on IXL can take on trigonometric ratios and functions with our eight new trigonometry skills! From basic trigonometric ratios, to inverses of trigonometric functions, to solving right triangles, these skills are sure to keep older students on their toes.

In addition, we’ve also introduced two-column proofs! Our 12 new skills use an intelligent proofs component that allows students to complete proofs involving angles, parallel lines, triangles, and quadrilaterals, no matter how much or how little information is given.

If you’re looking to challenge your high schoolers on IXL, be sure to check out these latest additions!

I love IXL.com. I am a sixth grade student and I love everything about IXL.com, but it would be nice if you had a test at the end of each grade. It would review all the concepts that you had already learned. Thank you

Hi, Micol. We’re sorry you feel that way. Feel free to share your ideas with us here: http://www.ixl.com/feedback. As for IXL’s SmartScore, it’s designed to measure students’ true understanding of a topic, which is why the questions get harder as you progress through a skill and why more points are taken away when you answer a harder question incorrectly. That way, once a score of 90 or higher is reached, a you can feel confident that you really understand the skill!

It is great that you added trigonometry! Please add converting angles from radians to degrees and vice versa, and maybe coterminal angle fun; also, consider evaluating the six trig values at the standard degrees and radians….really flesh out the trigonometric experience!

Hi, there. We’re so glad you’re enjoying our new trigonometry skills! You can look forward to practicing all the skills you mentioned when we release Algebra 2 in the fall!

No offense but IXL should be a little more fun. I get bored because the points go down when I do something wrong. I understand that it would only move one point down but not like 10 points. So unfair. Oh by the way if you are doing this to make kids smarter this program should be FREE!

Bye!

Hi, Karolina –

Thanks for your feedback. IXL’s SmartScore is meant to measure student’s true understanding of a topic, which is why the questions increase in difficulty as you practice and why more points are taken away when you answer a more difficult question incorrectly. When you reach a score of 90 or higher, you can be sure that you have an excellent understanding of the material!

We do work hard to keep costs low on IXL. You’re always welcome to practice 20 math problems and 20 language arts problems for free, on a daily basis.
