Last year math was the dreaded subject in our school. I spent many days frustrated and in tears trying to teach math to our oldest son. I started spending time in prayer over his schoolwork, as I knew we couldn’t keep going in the same course we were on. Thankfully I found a different program that is working beautifully for our family – Teaching Textbooks! We also have found a math drill program that is fantastic to use!
Quarter Mile Math is a computer game that drills math facts. This game is good for grades K-9, so a child can get a lot of use out it! The student can choose to race either a car or a horse, and depending on how fast he answers the questions he can win the race. The student races against his current best time, not against the other racer’s times.
You can see a complete list of the math facts that are covered here, but suffice it to say there are plenty! Kindergarten level starts out learning numbers and letters. Then you go on to easy addition and subtraction problems, and work your way up to multiplication, fractions, Decimals, Estimation, and more.
What I like about Quarter Mile Math is that while it is a game, it is not flashy enough to cause any distraction in trying to answer the math problems. The game does not give the appearance that you are playing a video game, which I personally like.
My boys (almost 9 and 7) have loved playing this game. I actually have to pull them away from it, which is saying a lot for my child who is not a lover of math problems!
You can buy Quarter Mile Math in individual level’s for $39.95, or you can buy a bundle package with all three levels for $89.95. Since you can use this for 9 grades, that works out to be $9 each year.
