Quarter Mile Math Deluxe Edition is currently being tested at our house. And if 33 races in 5 days says anything about how it is being received by my 12 year old daughter, I would say it is a hit.
The Barnum Software website says, "The Quarter Mile Math motivates students of all ages and the broadest abilities to do an incredible number of mental math problems at their fastest possible rate."
The topics available range from Numbers and Letters to Equations and are correlated with State Standards. I can tell you from personal experience that some of those races are very challenging! The student can switch back and forth between horse and car races. And once the student has reached five top scores, he races against those scores instead of the computer.
One great feature of the Deluxe Edition is that my children can use QuarterMile Math on any of our computers. Since their scores are recorded on the Barnum server, they can be accessed from any computer that has Quarter Mile Deluxe and an Internet connection. There is also a report available for each student that shows all the races he has run and the race times.
Another great feature is the price. For only $19.95 per year (or $2.95/month), a family can have access to this challenging math aid. There is also a Standard Version available if the Deluxe does not fit your needs. Homeschoolers, make sure you check out the page just for you.
I know in our house Quarter Mile Math Deluxe Edition will continue to provide a challenge for many years to come. You can read other reviews from the TOS Crew here.
