genius, Sam Squirrel, can help. With his plans of a time machine, it might be
possible to save Mia's home. Mia will need your help to prevent the tragedy.
Guide her on her quest to find all the parts needed to assemble this crazy
contraption. You will also need to gather `sparklies' for fuel. But you must
hurry, because without you, Mia will not succeed.

"Mia is a mouse you
dont want to miss. Producer Kutoka has created a rich environment that is
both realistic and fanciful. The lush graphics depict an incredible amount of
detail as players view Mias world from her perspective.
"Not only is the adventure special, but the nine math games
are particularly well done! Each has four levels and presents a wide range of
math topics in a creative and entertaining manner. Children will explore
geometry, time, fractions, number sense, equations, and logic."
Super Kids Software Review
"Mias Math Adventure does an impressive job of
incorporating a plethora of math skills into the learning games encountered
during Mias quest. The challenges are embedded into Mias journey;
with the completion of a task, the player earns one of the missing parts used
to build the time machine.
number sense, geometry, spatial orientation, time, mental computation
(addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), measuring temperature,
comparing and estimating numbers, fractions and problem solving. The creators
of this program are definitely curriculum savvy. The skill practiced in each
challenge can be made more or less difficult depending upon which of the four
levels the player selects. Unfortunately, the level cannot be adjusted
mid-adventure; it is selected at the beginning of play."
"Mias Math Adventure provides an entertaining way to
reinforce a wide variety of age-appropriate math skills. Additionally,
Mias quest encourages players to use their critical thinking skills to
figure out how to arrive at the next math game and solve the mystery. The four
difficulty levels provide for new learning experiences with repeat usage. While
the quest is best suited for home use, the activities-only option would provide
fun math review in a classroom setting."
