Product Description

Product Description

Put a new twist on the old process of learning subtraction tables with this fun interactive game from LeapFrog. Twist & Shout Subtraction game features 4 learning modes: Math Master (build your own equations), Super Solver (hear an equation and dial the right answer), Time Bender (solve as many equations as possible in 90 seconds) and Quiz Mode (with multiple-choice answers). Just turn the dial to choose a function, hit the activator button when you hear the right answer and watch it appear on the LED screen. Includes volume control and headphone jack for quieter play. Imported. 7-1/2Lx3" dia. Review

We all know how important it is for children to enjoy the learning process. It naturally follows that it is of paramount importance to provide learning opportunities, to encourage discovery so that children can enjoy their learning successes. Twist & Shout Subtraction excels in all these areas.

The game helps children to develop reasoning skills and it also allows them to practice logic and problem-solving skills, both of which are important aspects of everyday life. It is widely accepted that learning mathematical facts and numbers comes about most easily when they are presented in order, one number set at a time. Twist & Shout Subtraction uses this concept and by adding catchy music to the games, it reinforces memorisation by making the learning fun.

There are four game modes included, all of which are ready to play after twisting the game dials and selecting the appropriate mode. "Math Master" mode for example--a simple, straightforward game--invites players to twist the two number dials and select one number on each side of the equals sign, then hit the activator button, when the first part of the sum appears on the screen. Twist & Shout speaks the equation and its answer, and the whole is accompanied by catchy music.

A volume control is included on the learning aid, including low, medium and high. There is also the option to use headphones (not included) for quiet learning play. There is an inbuilt safety device that automatically switches Twist & Shout off after 18 seconds if it hasn't been used or switched off. Accompanying the learning aid is an excellent pamphlet explaining all aspects of the games, and this should be read before beginning, especially the section related to the use and removal of batteries. As this game is produced in the USA, certain spellings and pronunciations are Americanised, and care should be taken when listening to instructions. However, this in no way detracts from the enjoyment and learning potential as this is another excellent game from LeapFrog which will provide hours of fun and stimulation. Adults also might learn from playing the games! Recommended for ages 7 years and older. Twist & Shout Subtraction also makes a great learning aid for Key Stage Two maths students.--Susan Naylor

Also available: Twist & Shout Addition, Twist & Shout Division and Twist & Shout Multiplication.

My son gets a little irritated! 24 April 2003
By Jonnah Schmidt - Published on
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
He is only six and the numbers can go up a little high for him. He loves the timed game, but they include up to the number 17 so some answers he does need help with!
