Maths Made Easy 1
Scholastic come to the rescue of parents with Maths Made Easy (Ages 5 -
7) that is based on the actual key learning aspects of the Australian
maths curriculum. Not only will this software package teach children a
number of lessons regarding real-world mathematics but it comes at an
affordable price of $19.95 and still maintains one of the lowest
computer requirements, ensuring that this software package will work on
the majority of computers.
Maths Made Easy simply autoinstalled when the CD was detected by the
computer and after a few clicks of the mouse, the software was ready to
be used. I must once again applaud Scholastic for their easy
installation of their software packages, therefore making it accessible
to a wider computer market. Even if you do get stuck, Scholastic has a
wonderful support via their website at
supports a full year of math sessions for each year group with a total
of 24 individual units that cover the following sessions:
2D and 3D space
between Maths Made Easy 1 is extremely intuitive and easy to use, making
this software package a great compendium for children between grade 1
and grade 3. The mini-games in the title are varied and interesting and
contain various exercises to help children master basic mathematics
through visual recognition.
Graphically, the title isn't as impressive as many of the other
Scholastic titles on the market at the moment but the graphics are cute,
colourful and meaningful which do fulfill the job required. Match that
with some great sound effects and you have one entertaining and
educational program for children between the ages of 5 to 9.
In conclusion, Australian software developers Nightingale Software have
done a brilliant job at making Maths Made Easy 1 interactive, fun and
interesting that will definitely improve the skills of your children.
Based on the Australian maths curriculum, there is little to fault with
this program and if you wish to give your children that extra edge in
school, then you really should check this program out. Recommended!
