Excellent tool for motivating children
on 21 October 2010
I have a 7 year old year 3 son, who is not a maths fan, and has started to lose faith in himself, and therefore lose confidence. This game, and others in the series, have been wonderful for him.
Firstly we had no difficulty loading it onto our windows 7 laptop, and it plays with no problems. It is very straightforward to set up and play, and you can, for example, choose which times tables appear.
My tiniest of gripes is the absence of any volume control during play; you have to set this in advance on your computer, before opening the games, or be irritated by the sound effects for as long as it holds your child's attention - which seems to be a LONG time!
Great for maths confidence and speed; my maths-phobic boy loves it, so highly recommended.
