Math Rider
Hi friends! Another week of homeschooling is in progress. Micah has been working hard to learn his math facts. It’s a daily part of our homeschooling and he is getting quite good at his active recall. This year he has been learning his math facts with the help of my secret weapon, a computer game called Math Rider that was created by Thomas Brand, founder and director of Sharper Edge International Pty Ltd in Australia.
Do you have a child who is learning math facts? Are they struggling to get those facts down and it is a daily battle? Do they happen to love horses? Then I may have the perfect solution for you. We were given access to the online computer game, Math Rider, to use with Micah my 7-year-old. The program is designed for children aged 6-12 who are in the process of mastering their math facts. Math Rider covers all the basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts necessary to know for higher level math.
Math Rider presents mastering math facts in a fun and innovative way. The student gets to ride on a horse called Shadow to "travel on a quest" in fantasy-type lands while on a mission to find magical flowers and stolen gems. Your mission is to answer the math facts and clear the jumping obstacles in the process. The faster you answer the math fact the faster Shadow rides and jumps.
Pricing is just right in my book! At just $47 you can get lifetime access to the complete program with free system upgrades. A single family purchase is good for access to up to 6 player profiles within the family. Math Rider is available for Windows and Mac and will help your children master all four arithmetic operations—addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division— with 100% mastery. One thing I love about this program is that your child’s math knowledge is stored in the game and they are only practicing facts they don’t know, rather than drilling needlessly the facts already mastered.
I used this program with my 7-year-old son, Micah. He is in the second grade and he mostly focused on mastering his addition and subtraction facts. By mounting your trusty horse, Shadow, your rider moves through the game at varying speeds based off of previously answered questions. The question difficulty is varied to keep balance and to build your child's confidence. Pressing the correct number and pressing enter helps the rider earn animated rewards. Micah played the game at least 4 times a week for about 10-15 minutes without complaint. He frequently asked to do his Math Rider time before starting the rest of his schoolwork.
I highly recommend you checking out this program if your child is working on mastering their math facts! I see many more years of Micah using this math facts game as we continue working on mastery. Don’t just take my word for it! Be sure to check out what my CrewMates think of this program by clicking the banner below to read 23 more reviews. Math Rider Math Facts Game
