Cool Math Games: Quarter Mile Math
Cool Math Games: Quarter Mile Math is one of the programs that has more math and less game. I like it!
Learning Math Software:
Math drills can be a chore. At first you can make it fun with flash cards but unless you mix it up with games, it is about impossible to keep boys motivated.
Learning math software can be a great way to add variety. However, many many computerized math drill games are a bit short on the drill and heavy on the game.
Quarter mile math is one of the few math drill games that I like. This is mainly because there is actual math involved.
This is a racing game. Your student can choose to be a race car or a horse. Your student chooses the level of drills to be drilled on. As fast as the boys answer questions correctly the faster their vehicle (or animal) goes.
Students race against the computer for only the first five races. After that, they're racing against their own five previous best races in the other five lanes. I love this because you know as their speed is improving... so is their skill level. :0)
My boys enjoyed the game and loved competing against each other. My only job was to be sure they were working with problems at their own level. Occasionally I'd notice that they were choosing levels way too easy. It is still good review, but I also wanted to be sure they were drilling harder levels as well.
Quarter Mile Math is offered in several packs of different grade levels. Choose the one that fits with your boys ages.Be sure to order by clicking on the image at the top of this page... you'll get a 5.00 discount!
