This week I had to opportunity to review a fun, portable game that helps kids review math facts on the go! A slammin new way to learn math? I'm all for it & Educational Insights Math Slam certainly delivers!
What's in the box?
1 Math Slam Hand Held Game Device (retail value $39.99 - Recommended Age 5+)
About Math Slam:
There are 5 different games
4 levels of play
pass around play options for multiple players
All these features make this a great multi-age, multi-ability level game that can be utilized both at home, on the go and in the classroom.
The 5 math games included are:
Slam it up - which reviews number order
Sum Slam - addition
Subtraction Slam - subtraction
Mystery Number - algebraic addition
Triple Slam - triple addition & subtraction
This is a high quality product - sturdy in it's construction, easy to turn on and off and select a game and level of play, fun flashing lights and engaging audio sounds that provide instant feedback. Kids hear a beep for correct answers and a bong sound for incorrect answers. I like that the incorrect answers are repeated giving the child the opportunity to work out their answer and try again.
Games are also timed which allows children to work to "beat" their best timed scores for answering the 10 math questions. My Little Diva really enjoyed slamming down the correct answer - it definitely kept the game lively along with the flashing lights & sounds.
I appreciate that there are 4 levels to the game. This means it will be around for a long while and will grow along with my girls math abilities. Right now my kindergartener is able to play some of the basic levels on her own but this game has definitely made both her & her little sister a lot more interested in math. We sit and play some of the harder games like Mystery Number and Triple Slam together at their request.
Math Slam definitely gets the Lil Diva seal of approval!
