Summary: I have used this in my tutoring sessions. I have a good response and the children love, knowing that it is allowed to play math games while in school. Would recommend this to others who are struggling with math.
Summary: I wanted a little game that my kid could play to learn how to add and subtract. this is not it. I thought it would be regular addition and subtraction problems, but its this weird layout where you have several numbers and several symbols then you put them in order to make an euation. who wants to do that? what hapened to 8-3=blank? there are several "modes" of play, but they are different in name only.
Summary: I bought this item for my son who was having problems with math. He's still having problems with math-this product did not help. I couldn't even figure out how to use it-yes-I read the directions.
Summary: Got DS lite and only educational titles. Well kid voluntarily was doing math....sure would not substitute parenting, but if the kid enjoys it-well worth the money. Now in the second grade, way ahead of the grade level now. Letting kid reinforce all the knowledge explained to her with the game helped.
Summary: My 6 year old really enjoyed the equation building game and the "UNO" type game. I like that you have the option of being timed or not. I purchased the Spelling Challenges and more games as well, but found that being timed can be very discouraging for a 6 year old just starting out with his spelling.
Too hard for kids to grasp instructions (for a change)

Summary: For a change, I had to help my kid figure out how to use this game. It was frustrating. Once we figured it out, I found it entertaining for a brief while, as did my kid, then we both lost interest. The Nintendo DS brain age games have math-type games that are much more fun. This one was obviously produced quickly and with little thought or field testing, just pumped out to have a product. Hope they improve it.
Summary: This game is pretty good for a math game. I'm an adult gamer, and I wanted something to help improve my math skills. This game is actually good for that. My biggest problem with this game is that it freezes. There's one game where you have to position the cards to form an equation. It's good brain exercise, but the game freezes each time I reach the 10th question. At first I thought it was a fluke, but it happens each time I play that particular game.

Summary: I am an adult gamer who is not good in math so I thought I'd get this game from Amazon to practice my math. It is colorful, it reminds me of the card game UNO in it's design. There was one game where you have to create equations by moving the cards around to make the correct equation. It has several levels and skills to pick from. I got to level 10 before the game froze on me. I didn't think much of it. I turned it off and tried again. The same thing happened.
Summary: I bought this game hoping that the graphics would be great and it would make someone want to learn math. However, the game was boring, and the graphics were lame. For twenty bucks, I guess it was alright, but kids just played it for a total of an hour and went right back to their Mario games. I tried to play it, and found it was very boring. Pity.
