Mathletics ~ TOS Review

As a member of the TOS Crew, I received a free 45 day trial subscription to Mathletics. Mathletics is a fun and interactive web based program that (you guessed it) helps teach your child math! Your child can compete with children all over the world online in fun math drill activities or simply work at their own pace and at their own level in various math practice activities. This online community is completely safe. There is absolutely no way for the children to communicate with one another while they play against each other in the timed online math drills.

My children enjoyed this subscription very much. They also thought it was fun to be able to create their own character which you can see in the graphic below. My 7-year-old daughter asked to do this everyday (I think that speaks pretty highly of this program).

This is not meant to substitute a math curriculum, but is a good tool to use to help your children practice their math skills. A one year subscription costs $59.00/year. There is a 10 day money back guarantee. So, your family can try this out totally risk free. This subscription price covers ONE child. So, this subscription price can get pretty hefty if you have a large family, and in my opinion that is the ONLY drawback to this fun and interactive way to help your children enhance their math skills. I would like to see Mathletics offer a special deal for families one day. You can click here to read a brochure on how supportive Mathletics is of families who educate their children at home.
