MathGalaxy - Review

MathGalaxy is a stand-alone math program.  You only have to pay for it and download it one time and it is yours to use.

From their website:
  • It's like having your own personal tutor for K-12 math, guiding you through the exercises at your own pace.
  • It connects the abstract concepts of math to concrete experiences, with graphical illustrations at each step to help you remember.  
  • It gives you unlimited practice and detailed explanations.

Each concept has a tutorial which walks the student through the problems step by step (if needed).  He also has the choice to go straight to the problems.  This is great for extra help or just extra practice.

One thing that I really like is the riddles fun!  There is a silly riddle to be solved and after the student answers the problems correctly, he can see what the answer to the riddle is.

MathGalaxy doesn't have a lot of facy graphics to it.  It is a plain Atari looking program but after looking at a workbook or textbook, MathGalaxy is going to look really cool!  No, it doesn't begin to compare to talking cartoons but it does do the job well.  (You can try a demo on their website.)

What I like to do is to use a workbook or textbook and then cover the new concept even further with MathGalaxy.   There is plenty of practice with these programs.  Another option is to get the eBook for extra practice.

Each program is $24.95.

Janet ~ re: your ? on my blog about American History resources ~ I just loved so much from Vision Forum (www.visionforum.com & .org)! Not only for kids & teens but for adults & the whole family. Great books, great DVDs, great CDs & CDRoms, great games & even historical toys. I have all girls, so I had to find really interesting books that made war & other serious (& sometimes seriously boring!) subjects interesting them.

I also appreciate A Beka's (www.abeka.com) history/gov't books. We are VERY eclectic & during the years where we used textbooks as a 'guide', I would often use portions of the textbooks as a spring board to the actual book on the subject, or person, we were reading about. When you read a book about a person/time-frame/war/period in history, you always get so much more b/c the author has poured their time & heart into their research.

On that note, take time to consider WHERE you get your historical (& science) materials from, that it's not revisionist history, etc. Again, I would trust Vision Forum...also Christian Book Distributors (CBD).

Hope this helps!

Blessings from Ohio...Kim<><
