Summary

Like Using Your First Grader's Flash Cards

The Good

One could presumably practice very basic math with this program.

The Bad

Nothing much fun about this one - just answering very basic math questions. The graphics are merely numbers and math functions. The sound is nothing more than a series of beeps and two short melodies. If you, like me, can handle more than very simple calculations, the game quickly loses its challenge and fun.

The Bottom Line

The program gives you two numbers and a function. You use the controller to input the answer. A short medley plays. After 10 questions, the computer lets you know how many of 10 you got correct. This is basic math without any of the bells and whistles (well maybe one whistle).
