What the teachers say

We've received some fantastic feedback from teachers, parents and districts using Sumdog around the world. Below are some of our favourites.

This is a great educational game

Noemi Escalante, Teacher, Clawson Elementary School, AZ, USA

My students love using Sumdog Spelling and I love it too. This program targets several objectives at one time.


He is starting to enjoy Maths and his attainment is beginning to show improvement

Mark Clayson, Teacher, Heathryburn School, UK

I have a pupil who came into Primary 5 with a very low scoring maths ability. He could orally answer questions but needed a lot of prompting to do so. I used Sumdog as a tool in conjunction with other methods to raise his confidence and foster independence in his maths ability.

Because of Sumdog’s link with home he has been able to practice on his mum’s phone and is starting to enjoy maths and his attainment is beginning to show improvement.


Sumdog is such an enormous stimulus for my P.7 class in mathematics.

Lewis Mills, Class Teacher, Broomhill Primary School, UK

Children who struggle to submit maths homework at the end of the week take great pleasure in competing online with their friends and completing Sumdog homework challenges in exchange for coins and rewards.

As a teacher it is great to see my pupils so engaged with this area of the curriculum, often logging on in the mornings before they even arrive at school!


It has been their favourite maths activity this week.

Karen Cassells, Class Teacher, Barsail Primary School, UK

The children in my class have thoroughly enjoyed playing the games on Sumdog. They especially like playing against each other.

They have been asking every day as soon as they come into the class if they can do Sumdog. It has been their favourite maths activity this week.


The contests give it another level of learning.

Lynne McClelland, Class Teacher, Airdrie Academy, UK

Sumdog is amazing!!! All the pupils love playing the interactive games and more so when they can compete against each other!

The contests give it another level of learning. Pupils want to do well. They want to get questions correct, to up the class average.

They ask for help, they learn so they can get the question correct next time they come around.


Sumdog appeals to all types of students and results in real learning.

Sherri Oliver, Teacher, Mount Vernon Community School, VA, USA

I wanted to let you know how truly impressed I am with the Sumdog product.

I have never seen any program that has inspired students so thoroughly as does Sumdog...


What a positive impact Sumdog has had on my class!

Amy Carlin, Teacher, Chipperfield Elementary School, PA, USA

I think it's important that you know what a positive impact Sumdog has had on my class. The last two days that we have been working on the contest, they have come together as a family and I thank you for that!

I have also gotten positive feedback from parents about how excited their kids have been to be playing Sumdog - that is so awesome!


I cannot stress enough the motivation Sumdog provides.

Beth Stiles, 5th Grade Teacher, Mason-Dixon Elementary, WV, USA

The correlations of questions to our actual standards are excellent. Yesterday, a student pointed to the screen and said, "Look, Mrs. Stiles, these are the algebraic expressions we did in math this morning!” You can't do any better than that!


They love the games and are learning so much.

Cathy Frankland, Parent, UK

Sumdog was introduced at school in the autumn term, yet my children are still as enthusiastic about using it today as they were nearly 6 months ago. They love the games and are learning so much, without realising it.


I specifically had students who usually struggle with Math become motivated.

Allison Renner, Canaan Middle School, OH, USA

I signed my class up for the Madison county challenge and they absolutely loved it!


Sumdog provides a reliable and consistent way to gather data.

Manessa Green, Ronald E. McNair Elementary School, NC, USA

For many years, Sumdog has provided a reliable and consistent way to gather data on my students' skills in order to inform my instruction.


They engage with Sumdog so, so well.

Emma Bishop, Ysgol Bryn Elian, UK

My kids are loving Sumdog.


Each student had greater success. I was able to assess, reteach, reassess, and then move on to the next skill.

T. Riggle, Metro North Elementary, IN, USA

I love the assessment option in Sumdog!


I started using Sumdog mid-year and have seen tremendous growth.

D. Hendershot, West Elementary, KS, USA

I never thought an online program could do so much in such short bursts of time. It truly allows the growth mindset of my room to flourish.


Sumdog provides a reasonably priced product with guaranteed results.

D. Smith, Hackett School District, AR, USA

Sumdog is a great program, it allows students to work on their level of ability while I monitor them as they work.


My class showed more than a 20% growth.

Ms. Lovel, Chee Dodge Elementary School, NM, USA

Students have enjoyed practicing reading (language) on Sumdog and it corresponds wonderfully with our Discovery data.


He had answered nearly 4,000 questions and his accuracy rate had skyrocketed to 78%!

S. Dayton, Mariposa Elementary School, FL, USA

We have a student who was really struggling with math and his achievement was well below grade level. I set him up with a Sumdog account and encouraged his parents to allow him to use it at home.


Our teachers and administrators saw the benefit of the program and decided to get school wide subscriptions.

M. Hulgrave, Campbell Union School District, CA, USA

Campbell Union School District’s overall experience with Sumdog has been very positive.


It's also fair to say that those children who went on Sumdog on a regular basis have made more progress than those who didn't.

J. Smith, King David Primary School, Liverpool, UK

I'd recommend Sumdog as a fun way to present mathematics to children without them even realising that they are practicing their skills!


The results were amazing! 88% of the students got 70% or above. The class average was 86%!!

V. Sabelli, John Winthrop Elem, CT, USA

The program that worked was Sumdog.


By far the best results we have ever had.

J. Moorhouse, St Saviour CE School, Manchester, UK

We have just got our Maths Sat back and have remarkable results.
