It is widely accepted that learning maths equations and numbers, most easily comes about when they are presented in order, one number set at a time. Twist & Shout Division uses this learning process and also adds catchy music to reinforce the message, hopefully aiding memorisation and increasing the fun. There are four game modes--"Math Master", "Quiz Time", "Super Solver" and "Time Bender"--all of which demand full interaction as young mathematicians attempt to solve the various equations.
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. An in-built safety device automatically switches Twist & Shout off after 18 seconds if it hasn't been used. 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 pronunciations are Americanised. However, this in no way detracts from the enjoyment and learning potential as this is another excellent game from LeapFrog that will provide hours of fun and stimulation. Though adults also might learn from playing the games, it is recommended for ages 7 years and older. Twist & Shout Multiplication also makes a great learning aid for Key Stage Two maths students. --Susan Naylor
