I am aware of how important children being able to quickly recall their math facts is for children, it makes learning upper level math so much easier! So when given the opportunity to review Math Rider for the Schoolhouse Review Crew, a fun way for students to review addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division all in 1 fun game I knew this would be something that the kids and myself would really enjoy!
Math rider was created by a parent that was watching his children fail at math in school and couldn’t find any good math games to help them. So he created his own math training game for his children. As time went on neighbors, friends, and family started seeing the improvements that his children were making, since then 2 years later he has brought in teachers, psychologists, and school principles to help make the best possible math game for students!
In the Math Rider game your student will start their quest in the Land Of Ray, riding their trusty horse Shadow. They will choose what type of math problems their quest will focus on (subtraction, addition, multiplication, or division) Each of the different math skills has 4 different quests your child can go on ranging from easy to mastery, in each of the different quests will earn your student different rewards along their journey and a special reward once they finish a level. While on their quest in the game your student will find magical flowers to heal their grandma, help elves return gems, and even rescue a princess!
Something that makes this program unique is that your student will not have to worry about controlling their person through the game, they will only have to concentrate on answering each of the math equations. Your horse will ride through the area and the math equations will show up at the top of the screen, your students job is to answer the question before their horse gets to the problem so their horse can jump over the barricades and continue along on their journey.
Each answer your child gives in the program is recorded, using this information the program will tailor the questions for your student giving them practice on the problems they struggle with, which means they will not spend time answering the questions they already have mastered but only practice questions that they are in need of practicing.
Here is a short video about Math Rider to give you an overview of the program:
