MathRider is designed to help elementary school kids practice and master addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The software takes kids on various quests, all the while learning where they are at in the fundamental arithmetic skills. It then hones in on what needs to be practiced, with rewards and animations that match their levels of mastery.
This is a game that Madison and tried out together. To be honest, the animation has a lot to be desired. In a world where you've got computer animation that almost looks real, this is definitely lacking in that court. However, Math Rider does what it says. You child's math skills will get better without them even realizing it. I did find that even on the easiest setting that Madison had some issues typing in the answer fast enough (though this was solved with me typing in the answer after she told me it). I loved the graph it shows you. You can really tell what numbers your kids are struggling. I also liked that you could set up multiple profiles, so if you have more than one kid in your house who needs math help, this will work for them too. I also liked that it has all four math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division).
If you have a child struggling in math, I would definitely recommend trying this out.
