Professor Kageyama's Maths Training (DS): Simple Maths ?
22 October 2010
Summary: I have been playing Maths Training lately and although I am not that fantastic at math's I am confident on the basics we all learnt at school. This game aims to give people a good start to math's in my opinion and is aimed towards the teenagers and younger adults and your aim is to turn up daily like a routine and try and take part in various mathematical equations.
Summary: I bought this game because I enjoyed the maths games on Brain Training, but thought my brain could do with a bit of maths practice! It focuses on the basic skills of division, multiplication, addition and subtraction, which of course are the main skills you need when using maths in everyday life. After just a couple of days playing it, my mathematical skills had definitely improved and I was much quicker.
Professor Kageyama's Maths Training (DS): Not bad...
15 May 2009
Summary: Not bad... I bought this game as I already had brain training and I love mathematics, so I wanted a game like brain training that had only mathematical problems. However I really did not get on with this game. I found it monotonous and without challenge. Bad points:- 1) No charisma. 2) No storyline, or incentive to improve. 3) Not enough variety in the challenges provided. 4) The cell square method this game uses, I found very confusing.
Pros: Good for improving basic mathematical skills.
Summary: I have used my daughters DS for a long time and have played Brain Training on it many times, which we all love. For Christmas this year I was treated to my own DS, and so I went out and bought Maths Training for myself. Whilst the game was a very reasonable price... I am not impressed with the actual game play at all.
Pros: Cheap to Buy
Cons: No real way to improve your maths, its more about speed than anything else
Professor Kageyama's Maths Training (DS): Maths Training
26 January 2009
Summary: After playing Brain Training non stop on the DS, I thought I'd give Maths training a go. I used to be a right bright spark when it came to Maths as a kid, but despite working for a bank my maths turned out to be awful and I find myself struggling on times tables. So this was an excellent game for me - at first I struggled with some of the sums, but it's amazing how quickly you can pick something back up again, kind of like riding a bike I guess.
Summary: I bought this game as soon as it came out as I enjoyed the more brain training game I got for Christmas which I still play everyday. The maths training game is brilliant. There is a daily test with three sections. There are 20 levels to this and you progress one level every five days of training, after that you become a master and continue with random tests. As well as the daily test there are two other sections.
Pros: Improves your maths skills with repeated use
Conclusion: You start off on level 1 which is easy and then it increased your levels as you play each day. They also 10 levels of practice, where they is a timer to beat. They lots of different math activities like, flash cards, sentence sums, time tables, etc... It good for all the family. My son is learning his eight times table from this game.
Conclusion: not what i expected at all. Its just too easy. definately for the children. i expected it to be challenging like the brain training but its the complete opposite. plus it doesnt quite pick up the numbers i write in, which can be irritating.
Conclusion: This title does what it claims to, my only niggle is that the handwriting recognition isnt as good as some other titles, but its not annoying enough to stop you wanting to carry on training
Conclusion: Having really enjoyed brain training; i thought this would be a bit more of the same. However the format and layout of it was very disappointing and the games pretty boring to be honest. It was ok and the puzzles fine but overall not too great.
