Mad Dog Math Review

Photobucket

I have had the opportunity to receive and review Mad Dog Math through my participation in the TOS Crew.

What is Mad Dog Math?

From their website "Mad Dog Math is a supplement to any math curriculum... taking the basic facts and braking them down into bite-sized pieces that any child can master. A child progresses through a series of timed drills at his/her own pace."

How To Use This Product?

*Enables children to master their +, -, x, and ÷ facts in a fun challenging, exciting, and motivating way
*Math supplement for any math curriculum
*For grades K through 5th; remedial middle school and high school
*Standard, daily 10 minute time commitment from start to finish
*Huge body of math facts broken down into bite-sized pieces any child can master


There are three levels to this program plus a challenge level. Levels 1 and 2 are addition, subtraction and Level 3 is Multiplication and division. Each lesson consists of twenty math problems on levels 1 or w and twenty-four problems on the other two levels.

Your child will move through short, timed practice pages. It is designed around your child— if your child misses two or fewer problems, they will move to the next set of facts, if they don't pass, they will work on that same set again.

Mad Dog Math is available for Windows only, and it will track mor than one student throughout the entire program. You can try it out for free at their website, and that gives you access to the first fact family in all three of the levels.

As your child masters each level he will get a sticker that will be placed on the top right corner of their screen. So far my son has earned one.

My Thoughts on this Curriculum?

We really enjoyed working through this. We've had it for a little over a month and I have seen a lot of improvement in my son's division. He is middle elementary age so working through the addition and subtraction was easy for him but he did enjoy the multiplication and division. He was eager to beat the clock. As he worked through each level it went from 2 minutes to 1 minute to 30 seconds to complete each page. This really helped him in memorizing and working through the math facts quickly and most of the time he didn't even have to think before typing it in.

How Much Does this Cost?

To purchase, you can choose a one or two year license for $19.99 and $29.99 or a perpetual license for $39.99 and download the software immediately. Windows 32 bit or 64 bit software available.
