When my 6 year old was struggling with new math concepts, I bought a lot of software. I wanted something for her that was both educational, and fun. This program is by far the best we've tried. You can set the difficulty levels, so kids don't get frustrated, but also they don't get bored. The characters are really cute, and because there is an overall goal of building the boat, kids want to keep playing! For each 3-5 question activity they complete, they get a boat part as a reward. The various activities cover all math basics, including fractions, money, and time.
With other programs, my daughter would play, and then get bored or overly frustrated very quickly, but because of the ability to customize this game to your child's skill level, she played for hours and hours. The skill levels on it vary widely, so it can teach concepts from a 1st through 3rd grade level, unlike so many games that are only relevant for one grade. My daughter's gotten tons of fun math practice out of this game, and she's still playing! I'd recommend it to anyone.

I bought this for a seven year old who can spot "educational" games a mile away. (He is also special needs but is a visual-spatial learner). I told him that this was a "learning" game but he should give it a chance.

He loves this game, which honestly surprised me!

The game starts with Reader Rabbit and Sam (the Lion) entering a boat race. Due to a storm they crash on an island. A parrot they know comes along and plans to help them find pieces to build a new boat, but she warns them to watch out for the Pi-RATs who like to steal boat pieces and tickle wrecked passengers with pillow feathers!

Once the premise of the game is set the program gives you a map of the island. The child then gets about four or five choices at a time. Each place they click on the map has a learning game. If they complete the game they get another piece for the boat.

One thing that is great about this program is the ADAPT technology. The game moves with the child so if they struggle with ordinal numbers, but do really well in fractions, the fraction problems get harder but the ordinal numbers stays at the same difficulty.

Some of the Games:

Fractions: This is a very cute game where you have to help the Parrot make a Pizza. Monkeys come and give a specific order, such as pizza with 2/3 spiders. The child has to choose the appropriate number of slices to cut the pizza into, the right bug, and how many of each bug.

Greater/Less Than: This game has the Pi-RATs trying to get onshore by climbing in barrels. The child has to shoot water balloons at the "right" barrels to keep the Pi-RATS from making it on shore.

My sister literally sat down for 5 hours playing it! She finished it in 2 days! She was hooked (she's crazy about gamecube, and apparently, this program was right up her alley). Although I'm not sure if six year olds will really be able to handle it (some of the concepts seem too advanced for the average six year old), it is great for second and third graders, particularly the summer before fourth grade (which is when my sister played it).

This is the best math program I've seen. Though I have more exploring planned I know already there are plenty of turkeys. The tragedy is that math is (IMHO :) interesting and practical, yet drill-and-kill programs never make it seem that way. RR Math is partly a drill program but disguised in arcade-style games.
My almost 6-y.o. has rekindled his interest in RR Math and had played a lot over the last week, and has even been cajoled to ratchet up the skill levels -- with the promise he can always go back down. The program can also auto-ratchet the skill level. Most of the individual activities are reasonably fun, though the animation is pretty crude by the standards of other programs (Think early "Speed Racer" or other made-for-TV cartoons :).
I'm impressed they put in an activity for counting money, something that's not all that simple I realized when I tried to explain it. The telling-time activity likewise gets quite challenging. As you can see, I've been watching over his shoulder and haven't been bored away, although the repeating theme music *really* gets on your nerves after a while. (It can be turned off, but HE likes it.)
I predict playing these "games" helps my son towards a familiarity and confidence with numbers that makes the more advanced stuff later on less intimidating. But realize it is still the grown-ups who teach the actual math, as well as we can!

This software does not work on my Mac (OS X 10.5) or my PC (Windows XP). Very, very disappointed. Not as advertised!

This program is great fun and educational for any kid between the ages of 5 and 9. My 4 year old loves to play even though he hardly understands math concepts. He sees the fun his older siblings are having and therefore joins in. My 2nd grader gets easily frustrated with math but not with this software, simply because it is entertaining and he does not even realize that he is doing math.
