Back to What to Buy & Where to Buy It
We're looking for math games for our son (5th grade) that focus on
repetitive math skills (multiplication, division). We've really
avoided computer games until now, so we don't know what's out there.
(we use a Macintosh) Thanks for any ideas.
We love the "Math Blaster" series, and one of the best ones is for 9-12 year olds.
I think we bought them at Costco for cheap, but I've seen them online shopping, too.
Fun graphics, repetition of basic skills, word problems, problem solving, etc.
Try Math Blaster. This is a popular game and I'm sure they have a
version for MacIntosh. There is a basic one, then a more advanced
version. It's reasonably fun, not exactly Lemmings PaintBalls, but fun
enough. Good luck.
