TOS Crew Math Facts Now Software Review
Math Facts Now Software
Just the facts. No games, cute animals or aliens. Just the FACTS.
Math Facts Now is computer software that helps your child learn their facts via drill in a no-nonsense fashion. There's nothing to distract them from this objective!
The parent is able to choose the math function (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division), how many problems per drill set, how long to allow the student to answer each question and how many times a wrong answer must be typed out correctly in order to advance to the next question, AND something very unique. The parent can choose to input a reward into the software for the student when they answer all the questions correctly. Afterward the parent is able to print out the lesson results.
We used this software with my 2nd and 4th graders. It worked wonderfully for my older student. He loved zipping through the drills and then seeing the reward as a fruit of his labor. (Generally an extra 10 minutes of computer time or going outside to play earlier than usual). But, for my 2nd grader.....it didn't go over as well. Typing out missed questions with the whole equation at least twice was very discouraging to her and she needed me by her side to help her with the number pad.
All in all, this is a good product reasonably priced.

I received this software free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
