IXL offers math practice exercises for grades from pre-K through high school. IXL classifies exercises by grade for grades pre-K through eight and by subject area for high school level math, as of 2015. The website does not limit users' access by grade level.
IXL strives to offer practice for a comprehensive math curriculum that meets Common Core and state standards. Rather than games, it presents practice problems and the opportunity to keep working on a skill until achieving a desired score. Students receive virtual gold medals for achieving a score of 100 for a skill as well as virtual prizes for meeting different goals displayed on the students' virtual awards board.
In addition to its math content, IXL offers exercises to build language arts skills.
