My son has finally found a math textbook he enjoys. A few years ago, he was happy to play Timez Attack, which was really the first 3D game he had played. Now my daughter is ready to learn her times tables, but we’ve been playing Fate and Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Star Wars and Dungeons & Dragons Online, so sadly Timez Attack has just not been holding her attention.
Whilst surfing today, I came across this Mashable entry:
We’ve sorted the contenders from the pretenders and found five genuinely fun ways to help your kids learn math this summer. These unique technologies go way beyond the world of flashcards, and use surprising tools including rap music, adaptive technology, psychological research and wailing guitar solos.
They’re fun. They’re easy to use. And they aren’t lame. —Rebecca Zook
