We received a digital download of this product. Downloading the product was a bit slow, but nothing too unbearable. We were ready to start learning within an hour. This is a fun, engaging, supplementary math program that uses interactive stories, songs, and quizzes to help teach children the higher multiplication facts. By viewing short animated video clips with catchy lyrics, Montana was eager for math lessons.
We were able to use this product 3-4 days a week during our morning time to focus on learning the upper facts, the X's 6's, 7's, 8's, and 9's for the fact families starting at with 3. Some of the learning stories are brilliant! For instance, when learning the 7's facts you can think of it as a week. Mr & Mrs Week are the focus of this fact family because there are 7 days in a week. Fact family number 8 is all about Mrs. Snowman, because and eight is similar is shape to a snowman. I would use the time towards the end of of Morning Time to sit and focus with Montana for 10-15 minutes on learning the stories and facts. Some of them were easier than others for her to grasp, but I can definitely say that this has helped recall her memory on some of the more trickier facts.
I will just tell you now, flat out, that if you have a child that struggles with the multiplication facts, or one who is just beginning to learn this important math skill definitely check this program out. we have thoroughly enjoyed using this program in our homeschool and I look forward to using it with McKenzie and Micah when the time comes for them to learn these math facts. In my book, anything that can make my non-math liking 3rd grader say, “math is fun” is worth every penny to me. Be sure to check it out for a student in your family.
