Software Review:    Math Grade 2

Comprised of 30 virtual workbook pages, as well as arcade-style games and animated rewards, this title will please parents looking for an engaging method to help drive home second grade math facts. Entirely age-appropriate drills are featured, and kids will work with math "fact families", number lines, place value, and addition and subtraction with regrouping. A companion printed workbook is included in the package. Children work through the drill in a linear fashion, and enjoy all-fun activities in between. These can be bypassed, but itís doubtful children will pass them up. This title is just one in a whole series of "On Track" programs based on the well-known School Zone workbooks. Parents can trust the advertised grade level on these packagesĖ-something that is sadly not always true in the world of childrenís software.

 
Pros:
  • Graphics and audio are exceptionally appealing
  • Simple, straightforward presentation

 

Cons:
  • Though exercises are randomized, the educational content is not very broad
