MathRider Provides a Fun Way to Learn Math!

MathRider - A New Intelligent Math Game
About the Game 
Ride your horse on noble quests through the magical MathLands. MathRider combines fun game play with a highly sophisticated question engine that adapts to your child. The game propels your child to mastery of all four mathematical operations using numbers 0 to 12. Recommended for elementary / primary school children.

MathRider is designed to help elementary school kids practice and master addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

The software takes kids on various quests, all the while learning where they are at in the fundamental arithmetic skills.  It then hones in on what needs to be practiced, with rewards and animations that match their levels of mastery.

This has worked wonders with quite a few kids, who, having rescued the princess, suddenly realized that they were now "masters of addition" or whatever operation they were playing.

Have your child master addition, subtraction, multiplication and division all for the cost of less than 1 hour professional private tuition!

  • You will know when your child has completely mastered an operation. And more importantly, your child will know it, too!
  • This is the fastest way to mastery of all four math operations. The artificial intelligence rehearses what is needed most, at a rate that is tailored to each player.
  • The game recognizes and rewards improvement, not just perfection. This builds confidence and propels children naturally towards complete mastery.
  • Noble quests exemplify positive values such as family, caring, honesty and kindness.
My Take on the Game
My oldest daughter is in Kindergarten and she loves to learn and to challenge herself. So when I heard about this program I had to try it out. The program is both fun, educational and entertaining and I can say that she got a kick out the game itself. We first tried some of the practice rounds to get the hang of the game. For a younger child, I will say that it does take a little time to get used to the speed in which you must be able to provide the answers to the questions, so we had to start on an easier level than we had initially tried.

Once she got the hang of it she was off. This is not to say that you still did not have to concentrate and focus on the math problems, which you did, but it did provide you with the answers if you missed them. I particularly liked the fact that as you get into the game you are on a quest and the better you do in each part of the quest, the more you can achieve. Thus, you are part of the story that is unfolding right in front of your eyes.

Overall, a great game and one that I can see will be a staple in our homes for a while, as I can truly see the educational benefit of the repetition that the game provides, and I know it will only assist to strengthen Diva-J's math skills.
