Everyday Mathematics® Beat the Computer™ Multiplication
I go to the Forestdale School and this is the math program we use, Everyday Mathematics. Really fun game!!!!!
Horrendous game, poor educational value
It`s a shame that McGraw-Hill will attach their name to such poorly executed material.
First of all if it`s a game it must be at least remotely fun and this isn`t. Second of all if it`s educational it should offer feedback, and this one offers a useless one: a score that doesn`t tell you much and that isn`t even recorded for comparison (eg high scores, improvement over time etc)
Third, as many other games do it and as a good educational tool would do, it should adjust the difficulty based on the answers given. After answering correctly 6x8 7x6 etc why one earth would the computer give at least a half a dozen of multiplications by zero and ten?! And lastly, if it is on an iPhone, why does it have to be so backwards in terms of typing? If you can not code a decent interface then just use the iPhone`s! They made it look "retro" but it is also hard to use for such a ridiculously simple app. Seriously, a kid could develop a much better app than this and that would probably be educational whereas this app it isn`t.
This game is definitely helpful but the questions it gives you are way to easy for me. Don`t get it it`s a waste of money.
