Reviews:

Computer Shopper, May 1995

"Can math be fun for anybody except a mathematician? Children ages 6 to 12 will probably think so after they sample the multimedia Math Workshop. In fact, this colorful, creative multimedia package of puzzles and games will entertain both children and their parents for a long, long time.

"Math Workshop will do more than teach your children math skills; it helps foster a positive attitude to the acquisition of these skills, and, by implication, to knowledge in general. More cannot be asked of educational software."

CD ROM Power, March/April 1995

"With its cheery attitude and engaging activities, Math Workshop will provide hours of play. Its multiple-user setup could also give it classroom possibilities. Created by Broderbund in association with a group of educators, the disc aims to, and succeeds in, making math fun and in integrating math activities into a child's everyday life."
