What is Math Rider?

 

Math Rider is a computer game designed to teach children four math operations:  addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  The software is built to reward progress and ultimately help children develop mastery of each operation with numbers one through 12.

Each player lives in the Land of Ray and rides a horse named Shadow.  His or her mother is sick, and so he or she has been sent {by the doctor} to The Mathlands to find the mysterious Pythagoras flower to help her.  Playing through math quests, the player advances across the map to find the flower.

Our Thoughts

 

I think Math Rider is a fun way to encourage mastery of math facts in your child.  The game play is easy for children to grasp, the maneuverability is easy, and they are rewarded for making progress, not for perfection.

In addition, the game intuitively determines your child’s speed and knowledge and adjusts ride speed and questions based on this.  It is easy to track progress, see where you are on the map, and view the facts that you need a bit more practice with.

One thing I wasn’t too fond of was the fact that while the math problem is on the bottom right of the screen, the answer box is on the bottom left.  This doesn’t really affect game play, but if you have a visual child who needs to see the answer as they type it {or if you’re like me and thought you typed it but aren’t sure}, they’ll have to do a lot of glancing back and forth.  A big deal?  No, but something I thought I’d mention nonetheless.

I also want to point out how great a value I think this game is.  We love video games in this house, so I know a thing or two about games and pricing.  We’ve tried {or are currently using} several different games to enforce learning in a variety of subjects.  Most are monthly subscriptions, which can add up and are rather expensive when you add it over a year’s time.

At only $47 {a one time cost}, you have access to Math Rider for up to eight children.  That’s an amazing deal for a game that covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division through mastery.  Love it!!

Here are a few screen captures of the game:

  1. Thanks for featuring this game. I have been looking for something to add the the school week to be a little bit fun for the kids but still educational and I think this might be the perfect thing!

  2. Dear Tiffany,
    Thank you so much for your positive review of MathRider!
    You make a very good point about the answer entry box being on the left and the questions moving in from the right.
    It’s great to get this kind of feedback, because it really helps us to see what kind of improvements we could make to the game next. And of course we do make all updates available free of charge to our existing customers. :-)
    Thanks again and best wishes to you and your family!

The planet that we live in is mostly water, which means that divers have plenty of unchartered seas, oceans, lakes and rivers to explore. There are still so many underwater discoveries, which are yet to be made, and the next person who sets out just might stumble upon the next big find.
