Math Software -- The Big Picture

SuperKids' reviewers looked at a range of new Math Software programs this month, covering basics through decimals, evaluating their content and design, as well as their kid appeal and ease of use. Click on the titles to see the complete reviews.

  • JumpStart Math for Kindergartners [for ages 4 to 6] from Knowledge Adventure, does an outstanding job of providing young users with basic math facts, in a fun manner.

  • Math Blaster for 1st Grade [for ages 5 to 7] from Knowledge Adventure, is well-suited for the less motivated math student who likes arcade-style games.

  • MindTwister Math [for ages 7 to 10] from Edmark, provides a fun review of age-appropriate math skills. Good for both the struggling and the accomplished student.

  • Quizz Show: Alien Escape [for ages 8 to 12] from VTech Soft, offers well-written, curriculum-based questions to strengthen studentsí skills in Math, Science and Technology. Best for sci-fi lovers.

  • Hi-Flyer Decimals [for ages 8 to 13] from Hi-Flyer Software, supplies concrete number manipulation allowing students to visualize the numbers represented by decimal numbers. Not a game, but a very effective teaching tool, especially for students who don't readily grasp the concept.

  • Solid Gold Gnarly Math [for ages 10 to 14] from Santa Monica Publishing Co., offers some intriguing math problems, labs, games and puzzles -- but our reviewers found its presentation sometimes amateurish and frustrating.

Can't find one that meet your needs? Check out other Math programs SuperKids has reviewed.
