I remember improving my spelling and vocabulary with Scrabble. I was hoping this would do the same with math for my daughter. So far, so good. It's given my daughter great self-confidence in Math. She was doing division with fractions in the game, which she hasn't learned yet in school.
Only complaint:The tiles are cardboard and thin. Easy to lose, but they come in a ziploc type bag.
Better yet, my husband and I find it fun too! We played it the other night with him, and after he went to bed, we continued on the game for another 45 minutes. It's challenging for adults, which you can't say about too many games you usually play with your elementary school kids.
Now for some tips. The tiles included have addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division signs, whole numbers between 0 and 9, and a bunch of fractions. Mostly easy ones, like 1/2, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, etc, but there are some tougher ones like 5/6 and 2/6 in there. Your kid will need to know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers AND fractions to play with this set of tiles. I'd say 4th or 5th grade level of math. Otherwise, order the Junior set of tiles to go with this game board. Those tiles have more addition and subtraction signs, and no fractions. I see there is an advanced set that lets you do negative numbers and more complex equations, too, which we will definitely get as he gets older.
The only drawback, honestly, is that the tiles are made of really thick cardboard. They aren't really plastic tiles like I remember from Scrabble.
This game is great for the kid who loves math.Read more ›
Having purchased many boardgames I would say quality is above average and exceeded my expectations.
I love the concept of this game. I was always a child who loved math, but the only real math game out there was Monopoly. I grew to appreciate word games like Scrabble or Boggle, but I am thrilled that there is finally a math equivalent to Scrabble. However, no game is perfect, and if I had to name a flaw with this game it would be the quality of the tiles. The board is standard chipboard; unfortunately so are the tiles, so keep them away from water. I personally would prefer the tiles to be made of plastic as that would make them more durable. That gripe aside, it is still a wonderful game. The beauty of Equate is that if you don't have time for a full game, you could always use the tiles as classroom manipulatives to reinforce what your children already know.
If your child loves math, then this will be a fun game and a delight to play. If they don't, then they might grow to appreciate math more. I'm not guaranteeing it will turn them into a math-ophile, but they will at least see that math can be fun and not just a chore.Read more ›
