- Focusing on one skill at a time we bring to you a wide variety of exercises to test each skill. And these exercises can be attempted multiple times.
- Our platform gives instant feedback for encouragement and support through hints and videos for reference.

### Challenge 2 - Difficulty in tracking student progress

- Khan Academy helps solve this challenge by providing clear detailed reports on students' progress. This helps teachers recognize and appreciate students' performance. According to the reports, teachers can decide which level to assign each student.

### Challenge 3 - Catering to students of different learning levels

- Despite identifying the learning levels of a student, A teacher could find it difficult in catering to each one of them.
- Khan Academy is extremely useful to personalise student learning.
- Teachers can assign content as per student learning levels. Like if two students have difficulty with two different concepts, then the teacher can assign each student different exercises.

- What is associative property(2 votes)
- Associative property is when more than two numbers are added or multiplied, they can be grouped in any order. The answer will not change. Also, the associative property is not true for subtraction and division.

Example: 2 + 5 + 6

According to associative property, we can solve this in these ways:

(2 + 5) + 6

This means that we can add 2 and 5 first and the sum of it will be added to 6.

(2 + 5) + 6 = 7 + 6 = 13

One more way,

2 + (5 + 6) = 2 + 11 = 13

Other examples: 5 * 3 * 7

Associative property : (5 * 3) * 7; 5 * (3 * 7)(1 vote)
