What's it about?
With JUMPSTART STUDY HELPERS MATH BOOSTER, kids practice specific math facts by playing three arcade games. For example, if your child needs to review addition facts involving sums from 0 to 9, she can play a game of DigiHog Drop in which she arranges cute little DigiHog creatures into equations that solve those sums. She can also learn those sums by playing a pinball game or a fast-paced, shoot-the-asteroid-type game. The software can be played in English or Spanish.
Kids can choose to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, percentages, and decimals at six levels of difficulty. Youngsters can also control the level of difficulty of the arcade play, and determine whether they want to compete against the clock. The coolest portion of the software is the Editor. Here, kids (or their parents) can enter a specific set of equations to appear in the arcade games so players can hone in on specific problem areas.
