Review and Giveaway: MathBlaster.com


Math Blaster
Ms. Q and I were recently given the opportunity to review the online game world of Math Blaster. From Knowledge Adventure, the makers of Jumpstart, MathBlaster.com is a fun "out of this world" adventure game that challenges players to use math skills to help them complete intergalactic missions while playing arcade-style computer games.  

Ms. Q proclaimed Math Blaster her new favorite game to play on the computer but wasn't sure what it has to do with math.  Perfect because if Ms. Q knows a game is in any way related to schoolwork she'll complain.  If the "school stuff" isn't that obvious, she thinks the game is much more fun.  Well, the math practice in Math Blaster is sneaky.  One games uses patterns, shapes, and direction following to create a monster of your own formulation.  In another game, the player has to use number skills to escape some flooding ooze and climb to safety.  The games are fun and the characters are really cute (even the weird alien mutt thing Ms. Q adopted).

The website has a free play option and a membership option.  With the membership your child gains access to a greater variety of math based games and really neat options at MathBlaster.com that they will really enjoy.  The membership for MathBlaster.com also includes some game downloads and is a dual membership giving your child access to JumpStart.com as well.  You can add up to six children per membership so everyone can have their own avatar and own adventures!

If your kids like playing computer games (and whose don't) and you want them to practice their math (and who doesn't) then why not try out MathBlaster.com.

I used this program back when my twenty year old was younger. I think it would be fun for my youngest now.
