Math Rider is a math game for kids
So I am not gonna lie…I was sneaky with this review and getting the 12 year old to play it. He thought he was ‘too old’ for the ‘game’ and said it was for younger kids.
I opened the program and went to the difficult level of addition.
As you play the game and advance you go across the Mathlands from The Land of Ray.
So as the game was telling the story, boy child got interested. When it came time to play after the story he pushed me aside to play himself. He enjoyed it!

It is a bit slow moving for my 12 year old…but he feels that way for all math so I don’t feel it is reflective on Math Rider itself. One nice attribute….if he misses, say 12+21, the game pauses and says it out-loud with the correct answer….then, after a few more questions, asks the one he missed again. I like that part!
It is a download, which I had a few issues with, but they were quick to return e-mails and very nice! I am sure it was operator error more than program error.
Math Rider is an instant download for $37 with a 30 day risk free guarantee.

we reviewed this last year and my youngest son it. I couldn’t get him off of it. This is definitely geared towards boys.. My son really grasped the multiplication with this and got his facts down because of jumping the hurdles.. Wish it was cheaper..
We’re reviewing this, too. My 9 yo seems to enjoy it pretty well. I like that, because of his developmental/learning delays, that the program will go slowly for him. I haven’t been able to get my 12 yo on it at all! :p But I played through a quest myself, and it was fun to see how quickly I could answer the questions, and see how quickly the program actually moved! 😉
I’m now following your blog; hope you’ll come follow mine! 😉
