From DreamCatcher Interactive, this collection of math games can by synced with syllabuses for grades one through four, making it easy to ensure problems are just hard enough to keep students both interested and motivated.
Cool, Castle Graphics Keep Exercises Fun
At the outset, players are welcomed to the castle and asked to enter their name and grade level. This information is stored, so it’s easy for multiple players to set up characters on the same DS unit, making it a great choice for families on the go or students who want to compare results with their friends on the bus.
Once they’re ready to play, kids will start working through lessons as little green vampires, and they’ll have the opportunity to progress through 10 different topics, learning new concepts, practicing them, and repeating lessons to ensure that they stick. They’ll also be tasked with mastering brief quizzes that provide an incentive for practicing skills until they are perfect.
Even Vampires Need Math for Everyday Tasks
Whether it’s arranging geometric blocks into Tangram animals, figuring out how far the monsters drove on their European road trip, solving mazes, or doing basic addition and subtraction to figure out the cost of items in a store, this game ties learning abstract concepts to concrete examples for better overall understand–and extra fun.
More advanced students will even get a chance to earn stars and other rewards by racking up right answers to division and multiplication problems, just like they do in real classrooms.
