The cards only contain single digit numbers and the winning or losing answer is never greater than a value of 10. This is perfect for the beginner level that she is at. We also bought her an abacus recently and that's proved to be a perfect compliment to understanding these cards. She joyfully works out her answers with the abacus, and the abacus assists her in getting the correct answer every time.
The premise of the game is a familiar one to most, and the rounds end so quickly that there are plenty of opportunities for each player to score a luck-based win. Considering the learning-based premise of it, I think that's important. I want her knowledge and understanding to increase, not for her to feel it's something that has a 'failure' stigma attached. Of course, the gameplay is slowed by her need to perform calculation, but I predict that over time she will begin to recognize similarities in the problems and be able to solve them without the aid of the abacus - that is, if she doesn't simply memorize the problems and corresponding answers first.
As an added bonus, the company (School Zone) who manufactures these cards does so in the USA, a rarity these days, but this pleases me as we've been trying to avoid products manufactured by slave labor in third world countries. The cards themselves are attractive enough, with happy little children adorning each. And, of course, the price is right.
I'd highly recommend these to anyone with youngsters developing an interest in mathematics.
When I saw these Math War Addition and Subtraction game cards on the Amazon website (they also have School Zone Publishing SZP05032 Math War Multiplication Game Cards, I was thrilled. The kids love playing the card game War already. It turns out they LOVE playing Math War, and my little finger-counter finally made the transition to doing the math in his head, which will really help give him a strong foundation when he makes the progression to more difficult math.
As a Mom, I love it when we can start and end our evening Homework Sessions with Math War. It's much less like pulling teeth to get them started!
Great learning tool, and fun, too....for ALL of us.
