Super Kids Educational Software Review

"MindTwister Math is great for drilling math facts and newly acquired (or currently rusty) skills. It shoots problems at the user rapid-fire -- no messing with a lengthy storyline or overdone graphics. Most of the problems reflect concrete, real-life uses of the involved math, while challenging the user’s mental math abilities. Four difficulty levels allow the program to suit a variety of computational abilities, and a multi-player option lets up to 4 kids participate at once.

"Our teacher testers were pleased with both the content of included questions and subject depth, and unanimously agreed that they would recommend this program to students needing to work on math at the 3rd and 4th grade level."

"MindTwister Math provides a fun review of age-appropriate math skills. Kids who are already good at math will improve their computational speed and mental math ability, while students struggling with the subject can use it to review basic math facts and acquire needed skills."
