Math Galaxy (Review)

You're probably thinking "oh my gosh, not another math game review"! To be honest, I thought the same thing when I received Math Galaxy as part of the TOS Crew. This particular product is a different blend of bells and whistles vs. plain Jane. During the actual math problems, there are no bells/whistles. However, as you progress, you earn more robots to play games with at your convenience. This cuts out the distraction, but gives kids a goal to work towards.

You can purchase several different programs, based on your child's current math level. Each game sells for $29.95 and is quick and easy to download. Below I've listed the table of contents for each game level, colorful, aren't they?

Olivia enjoyed working on the whole numbers section. Incorporating the computer in math has improved her speed and helped with her fact memorization as well. Although, she (and I) both had trouble trying to figure out what in the world those little robots were supposed to do once we got them. I'm pretty certain they were just sitting ducks for all those crazy snowmen, spiders and boulders.

The good news, is that once you've purchased the product and downloaded it to your machine, you can use if for as many kids as you'd like. The bad news is that at $29.95, the cost can quickly add up if you have different kids on different levels starting out.
