My daughter uses it to practice addition. The Math Mat gives her an equation, such as `what is 2 + 8' on the "Easy" Level and she runs around and jumps on the usually correct number. If you don't get the number correct, the Mat tells you what the answer is. And key to the Math Mat's success and popularity is that it always keeps a positive outlook.
My 3.5 year old son on the other hand can't do equations so he plays at identifying the numbers. The "Easy" Level on the Mat is just that: identify the numbers from 0 to 10. The more "Difficult" Level gives children a sequence of numbers for which they must give the missing number. For example, the Mat will say something like, `What number comes next". Then it will say the sequence "3, 4, _" and your child has to come up with "5" for an answer.
I foresee a slight lag problem where the Mat might not get much use. A Toddler might have fun identifying their numbers, and a Preschooler might have fun filling in the sequence, but there will probably be a gap in time before they progress to an age where they can do simple addition equations. (Then again, if they have the Math Mat maybe there won't be a gap.)
Four Stars. Good educational fun. Toddlers and Preschoolers will probably need parental help and motivation.
The Math Mat takes 3 AA batteries. To play you put the mat on the floor and then choose whether you want to do addition or subtraction or number identification. It is all pretty intuitive and we haven't had to look at instructions.
I think this is so good for my son because he is hyper and it allows for and even encourages movement. Yet, this toy also requires listening and focused attention. Due to the latter fact, I will admit that at first it seemed like another waste of money. He was getting frustrated because he wasn't getting the right answers and didn't want to play. My son does not know all his #'s and that was my main purpose for buying this item. I did figure out the best way for him was to deivide up the #'s between us. He got the 0-5 and I took 6-10. It's been less than a week and he has almost mastered his side. All in only 10-15 mins of play each day. The fact that he will still play it is a major thrill for me. It's fun factor also comes from it being sort of a timed game so that after each correct answer its ticking will speed up and once time is up it will tell you how many you got correct. We have the highest score possible on the #'s and he is almost as proud as I am.
There are 2 levels and 3 activities: Numbers, addition and subtraction. We are just on numbers but once he learns all of them (my side and his)I know this will be a great way to help him with adding and subtracting as well. There are also some really great suggestions as for other ways to play using the mat included.
So as long as it holds up I'd have to say it's a wonderful toy and not just in theory.
