One of my daughters favorites! - Well thought-out variable controls which help the parent make it fun. Let's face it, no fun = no learning. The number line is terribly smart, and begs the question, why haven't I found more apps using it like this one and Khan Academy? The Audio functionally is so cool. My almost 2 year old loves to watch and listen to her 4 year old sister run through addition and subtraction tables. No distractions, no clicking, or selecting, or out of sync audio tracks to distract my daughter. In the beginning it was, reluctantly, IXL. An uninspiring, frankly uninspired, depressingly sad web based system. Then I stumbled upon Khan, which throws IXL back to the standards and creativity on par with 1972 ATARI Pong - no intent to besmirch the game gods Nolan and Ted. Then occasionally, small gifts come my way like this little program. The Karma thing is real man. I hope this teem isn’t taking business governance notes from Kajagoogoo. There's real talent evident here. The parents I know get the seriousness of our competitive disadvantage, and they can’t bankroll an offshore boarding school at 60k per year where their kids at least have a fighting chance at educational parity.

Really useful for reviewing math facts - My daughter has really benefited from using this to review her times tables. I just would like to see the range of numbers (especially for addition and subtraction) increased beyond 9 or 12 to maybe 100 or so. But within its limits, this is great.
Great practice - Great for my first grader to practice and a nice review for me.
Just what we needed! - This is just what we needed to help our 6th grader who is struggling in math.
Nice Program but limited - My son likes working with this program to practice his math. I like the ability to tailor the problems to meet his needs, but as mentioned in other reviews there is a limited range. I keep hoping that an update would be released so that addition and subtraction up to at least 20 would be possible. Stopping at 18 seems a rather odd. For me it was a good value because it got my son practicing his math. He needed the extra practice. I would only recommend it for those that need extra help.
Limited Number Range - Purchased this to help my 1st grader. As a teacher, I like the flexibility of setting up what the drills will consist of: time, range, type of problems, quantity etc. The design on that end is great. What I am very disappointed with is the limited range for the values. Addition and subtaction are limited to answers 0-18 (9+9, you cannot use 10). For multiplication and division, 9x9 and 9/9 are the limit. If these were expanded, this would be a great product, with the limited range I am going to have to look for something else to supplement the addition and subtraction.
