Summary: I know this game is trying for learning experiences but it fails in epic proportions. i thought that since i played games 24/7 i can at least play a little bit of this so i can think better in class. I've played this game maybe a few times then got bored of it real fast. don't bother with this.
Summary: I bought this game for my eight-year old son through the Scholastic Book Club at school. We were very excited for it to arrive, and were sorely disappointed when it did. First, there are only two "games", so the selection is limited. Second, the games involve mostly guessing or luck-of-the-draw. Therefore, you may know the answers to the math problems, but it doesn't mean you'll win. Very discouraging.
Summary: My 7-year-old daughter bought this through her school's Scholastic catalog with her own money. She LOVES math and was so excited to get it. It was heartbreaking to watch her dissappointment as she realized this game has NOTHING to do with math or, for that matter fun. I also have a very video savy fourteen year-old who double-checked to make sure she and I weren't just missing something. His angry comment, "...this is the worst game ever!
Summary: This game is very fun! I highly recomend it for grades 1-8! It's got everything from easy addition, to extremly difficult long multiplication! If your having trouble with math, this is great, because you can do it over and over 'till you get it right if you want
Summary: This is the worst DS game ever. Don't waste your money on this game. This is a luck and guessing game and it has nothing to do with math. The instructions are pretty poor. The formulate section does not even work. The makers of this game need to pull it off the shelves and fix it.
Poor instructions and difficult understand, but worth the effort

Summary: I would not recommend this for 3+ ages, my 6 year old does not understand it and the 8 year old needs adult supervision and its still a little muddles a week later. The instruction booklet is very poor and the screens could be improved. I think once you get into it, the children will eventually catch on. I would recommend that an adult plays this across two DS's with another adult.
Summary: I bought this for my six year old, who enjoys maths and his DS!. So I thought this would make a difference to the games he usually plays. However he has only played it once and much prefers to work through his various maths text books.
