TOS Crew Review~~Math Rider

Math Rider is a downloadable game for kids to practice their math facts. 
Kids can practice their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 
The more they play the better they get.  Each child creates their own rider.  The game runs on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.  The cost of the program is $37 and you will get an instant download.
You can go to their homepage and watch an informational video HERE.
 Children do not need really good typing skills to succeed at Math Rider.

The children loved this game.  They soon found out tho that if they answered slowly it would make the horse run slower.  They really picked up quick on the math facts and enjoyed playing this game.  We will probably purchase this later for continued use.  With three children to teach it's nice to have some educational game play for them while I'm working with the others.  The only way children will learn math is by doing it over and over.

The game controls are very easy and the kids liked that a lot.  There is nothing more frustrating for our children than to try and figure out a learning game.  While at the same time trying to learn math facts.  This was great for just that reason.  A few minutes of instruction and they were off and running.  This is a big hit in our house.

Go HERE and see what other crew members are saying about this.
