Educational Insights brings a terrific idea to life in Math Shark, a combination skill-building tool and calculator. The shape, colors, flashing lights, and beeps--all reminiscent of a hand-held electronic game--will appeal to kids who may not otherwise be interested in practicing math. (Parents: the sound is unobtrusive, but can be turned off.) Math Shark offers eight different skill levels and seven skill groupings: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, fractions, and percentages. After every question a red or green flashing light and a corresponding beep let you know whether or not you answered correctly. If you get one wrong, the right answer flashes, and the question keeps appearing, along with any others answered incorrectly, until you get it right. After each set an encouraging comment--"You did it!" or "Way to go!"--comes up on the screen. The sets are timed, and your score, based on how long it took to answer all the questions correctly, appears at the end. When practice is done for the day, Math Shark becomes a handy calculator. Requires two AA batteries, not included. --Rachel RadwaySee all Product description

I bought this online from Amazon for my child who needed to learn multiplication 'math facts' and hadn't mastered it yet and her class was moving on to more difficult things, upon which multiplication was a basis. I had tried flash cards and a ton of apps, some free and some for a fee, and nothing seemed to work - or the app would be fun, but not helpful to learning math facts.
I finally bought this after a tutor said that the only issue was just memorizing math facts - I suddenly realized that all the money for a math tutor was a lot more than just buying this educational toy.
I bought it and within a week, my child has almost completely mastered her multiplication 0 - 12. She already had about half those numbers down, but she was stuck on the other half. Every day, I make her use the math shark - she would rather do other less academic games, truthfully, but she is still willing and pretty happy to play on this product. I make her do different numbers alone (under the level1 or 2) and then the machine times her and I write the time down on a chart so that she can see how much better she is getting with each number she learns. The positive reinforcement and realization that this is actually FUN once you are good at math facts - has had a snow ball effect and her confidence and attitude about math has soared. I am truly happy - my child is almost caught up and I feel like this product really saved us and will make this academic year much easier. I am recommending it to everyone..
We haven't tried division yet, but that's next.
For future versions of the shark math, I think the company making it should update the screen (making it easier to read), should put in some 'memorization' function so that the machine keeps track of how fast kids are learning, and should make it easier to use, if possible (not impossible to use, but I did have to read over the directions). But all and all, I am very happy and relieved that we found this.
A reviewer complained that that you cannot change the contrast but you can. Just read the users manual. Another reviewer complained that if you make a mistake it will not show you the correct answer, but it does...right before it changes to the next problem it will display the correct answer for about two seconds. The problem will then recycle into the end of the game.
There is no way to adjust the volume...but there is a mute and a quiet setting. It does not matter if the sound is on or not, because it will only bother other people if they are holding it.
I will now explain the durability. My daughter dropped it a few times, and it still seems to be working fine. As far as the buttons go, they seem to be working fine. Just to make sure the keys functioned, every time you type a digit, check to see if it appeared before moving on to the next digit. This makes me have to say that even if they know the answers, a little kid could not use this, unless they did not get frustrated about having to check the digits.
Also, you should be aware, that it says it is a full function calcuator, but it is not really one. It is missing a memory.
A final problem is that, unlike the sounds, there is no way to shut the lights off. That is disappointing because the lights are very bright and will hurt the eye if you stare at them for a while.
If you want more information, read the user's manual after you purchase math shark. I hope I have helped you decide what to fill your shopping cart with.
