Math Software -- The Big Picture

SuperKids' reviewers compared five new Math Software programs this month, evaluating their content and design, as well as their kid appeal and ease of use. Which is best for your child?

  • Carmen Sandiego Math Detective [for ages 8 to 14] from Broderbund, provides fun math exercises wrapped in a mystery-solving story. Best for young child who already knows basic math facts.
  • Math Quest with Aladdin [for ages 7 to 10] from Disney, is an Indiana Jones-like adventure, filled with math-based problem-solving activities. Best for young child who already knows basic math facts.
  • Math for the Real World [for ages 10 and up] from Davidson, has the user travelling the countryside with a hot new rock band, making money to produce a video. Real-world, word problems.
  • Number Maze Challenge [for ages 5 to 12] from Great Wave Software, offers 350 levels of math problems, by topic and grade level. Not much sizzle, but captivating to students interested in math and/or maze solving.
  • School House Rock! 1st - 4th Grade Math Essentials [for ages 6 to 10] from Creative Wonders, offers young students the opportunity to develop and practice multiple levels of math skills in cleverly designed challenges. Better-suited for the lower grade levels as it becomes complex and difficult to follow at higher levels.
