Fun and cognitive!
Multiplication facts start in third grade. In this game, the player flies along in a 3D environment selecting the right answer by running into the appropriate answer block. There is debris to shoot at, but it is only to sugar coat the learning. It doesn't affect the score. In fact, it can be ignored. What's cool is that there is a review before the game starts, so children can learn their multiplication facts instead of just being tested on them. Like any educational game, I doubt this game will replace Mario of Sonic, so just use it the night before a timed test. Trust me, it's a lot better than flash cards and the like in getting a child excited about learning over 100 facts.
i would rather go to 2d
First my Son played it and he said its the most boring game hes ever played all you do fly and shoot NOTHING ELSE!!! i know educational but its supposed to fun too well it not its the most boring game ever my Son said. So don't waste your time with this stuff just go back to 2d or on a paper its way better then this.
Rather old graphics, seems only to review multiplication tables
Rather old graphics. The application only seems to review multiplication tables as opposed to challenging you to determine the correct anwser.
Mediocore, stil searching for a good math app
I brought my 4th grad son over to play the applicaton and our overall impression was that this was a mediocore app that could use some design work. There was no option to tailor the application to various levels. It would be nice if you could tailor the speed at which it gave you questions, keep track of your results, etc...Example: When you first start the app you select a times table by flying into a selection. It seems like we are waiting too long for this to happen every time we play because the guy is flying slow and we can't speed it up. This happens as well during the tests. We know our answer, and are just waiting until we fly into our answer. Not fun.I gave it 3 stars, and will continue our search for a decent Math app. I'd advise you to do the same.
this game is super fun! I really love it! yes it is 3D and yes it is not just endless math drills so it will inspire kids everywhere for a love of math.
