Math Rider - TOS Review

Looking for a fun way for you kidsto practice math facts, you may want to check out Math Rider.

Math is one of those subjects it seems, that we never have enough help with. This is even more true when it comes to mastering those Math facts. That is why I was more than happy to try out another Math product for the crew.

Math Rider is an online educational Math game that seeks to help your child master the basics math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

The way Math Rider works is that each child gets to be a rider on a quest, or a mission. In order to complete the mission he has to keep answering math facts questions, and as he answers them correctly he progresses towards the goal. If he gets it wrong, he still advances but at a slower pace.

From the website:

"Ride your horse on noble quests through the magical MathLands. MathRider combines fun math game play with a highly sophisticated question engine that adapts to your child. The game propels your child to mastery of all four math operations using numbers 0 to 12 in record time."


Math Rider is a downloadable program and consists of 4 different level, Easy, Medium, Advanced and Mastery.

Our opinion:

My 6 year old's  answer to how do you like Math rider:
"It's good and fun to play, you get to find treasures and you solve math problems, some difficult, some easy. You have to answer the questions and if you want to speed your horse up you answer the question faster."

Personally, I think that Math Rider is a great Math tutor for mastering these math facts that often gives us, homeschool mom, a headache as to how to ingrain them in our kids' brain. I did not have to force them to play, which in other words, meant practicing math facts. they have improved in their math facts mastery, which was not that high to start with. My eldest is good at understanding Math concepts, but retaining Math facts is not his thing, so this is helping greatly. With my youngest one to whom math facts come a bit more easily, it is really helping him cement and practice and add on more.

Math Rider comes with a 30 days money back guarantee, so no risk here.

Disclosure: I was offered Math Rider free of charge for an honest review.
