Both our kids (8 & 5) played this demo non-stop for two hours until they passed out on the couch (they chose this over watching a movie with us)!!!
The game basically has them run through several different types of drills covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with the help of a very cute animated professor!
The only frustrating thing is you have to teach yourself how to write the numbers so that the game can process your answers in order to get the best time.
The kids have got that figured out and now they do their daily tests each day. Our son is at a level six. He's very confident in his ability to solve math problems quickly (which is a huge improvement). It's so nice to see him excited about math!!! What a change in his attitude and approach to the subject this game has made!
Some reviewers have complained about how the game doesn't recognize their handwriting. Although this is a little troubling at times, I actually really like this feature of the game: my 2 youngest sons are left-handed, and they make some of their numbers backwards, or in inefficient ways. This game requires that they make the numbers "correctly." It's one thing to have your old mom keep correcting your handwriting; but if you have to do it right to win the game, then you very quickly change your ways. Hooray for 7's and 4's going in the right direction!
This game has all sorts of clever drill methods, and many levels of practice, ranging from one-digit to 3-digit. It provides feedback on speed and accuracy. An effective and fun way of improving skills for both children and adults.
Personal Trainer: Math for the Nintendo DS, is a stimualting title, that reintroduces the memory and challenges of solving simple, everyday math problems. The gameplay is simple, and easy to understand, as you use your stylus, and your mind to go through everyday activities. The graphics are simple, and let the gameplay speak for itself. As you go through the game, there are numerous exercises that help stimulate your mind from basic math problems with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, to easy to understand word problems, and even memorizing flash cards. While the game might seem like it is for babies, it actually teaches math strongly to those who need to be refreshed on their basic skills. While it isn't able to be as addictive as Brain Age was for DS woners, but expands the DS library very nicely, as a smart teaching tool that works well.Read more ›
