Summary: Very disappointed. I thought I would give this a try, but the users who complained about how difficult it was to get the game to accept your handwriting were right. This is very difficult to use for my fourth grader. There are many free, less frustrating math games she can play online instead.

Summary: This was an extreme disappointment. I purchased this for my nine year old, hoping he could spend some of his time on his DS learning something. Unfortunately, the mini games were extremely simplistic and out of date.
Summary: The cover of this game states it teaches 1st thru 4th grade math skills, but as other reviewers have noted it is really only appropriate for 3rd and above. I also found that the drag component didn't work well and that it was difficult to play as a result.
Summary: terrible game not useful. complicated just to figure out what your supposed to do. There is absolutely nothing good about this game. I wrote nintendo about their lack of good math tutorials and other educational games and they told me they were comeing out with another one of these games and I...
Summary: I admit it... I overlooked a number of well-articulated poor reviews of this product and hoped that it would be better than it is. I have a first-grader who loves math but isn't challenged by the math being taught in his classroom.
Lack of feedback and ignorance of correct answers make this game a very frustrating experience

Summary: I bought this game for my 6yr old son. Given the choices of problems available, I'd say the game is a great fit. However, the lack of feedback from the game doesn't allow a kid to learn from its mistakes.
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 year old daughter who will be entering 1st grade in September. The game says right on it "For grades 1-4", unfortunately, when you start the game the options are only for 2nd-5th grades. So, if you have a child in or going into 1st grade, this game is NOT for him or her.
