    While we had a bit of a difficult time installing the program at the beginning because Norton said it was a High Risk, I am glad we were able to install the full program. Mikayla has been able to get on and review her math facts. I have seen improvement in recall and we will continue to use the program until those facts are solid.  Montana is coming up in the ranks and will be able to begin the addition portion next school year.  I love the fact that for added incentive they offer Merit Badges for $4.00 a set for  mastering the four different math facts.  I plan on purchasing these for a little more incentive for the girls.For $29.95 CapJaxMathFax is available for instant download. The Photobucketaddition portion of the program is free to check out, you can find the link here. If you enjoy the addition portion I know you will love the full version which gives access to all four types of math facts for the $29.95. Find out what my Crewmates thought of the program by clicking here and reading some of their reviews.
