This program is to help students learn their math facts. The teacher sets the parameters and the student is presented with random problems to solve. The program lets the student know how they did on each problem and also keeps track of progress. It can be set up for Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication or Division. There are 9 levels and 10 problems to a level for addition and subtraction. There are 10 levels with 11 problems to a level for multiplication and division. Each questions allow 3 seconds for an answer but you can set that number higher for beginners. You can play for a rating (which saves your scores) or you can play for practice.
Essentially, instead of buying flash cards and spending hours with our child going through them, this handy dandy program does it for you randomly and automatically and then records progress reports for you so you can go back in any time and find out how your child is progressing.
I have a little one just starting out on her math journey and I know she will spend countless happy hours at the computer honing her skills with CapJaxMathFax. A couple of years ago I spend hours tutoring a young girl who was trying to make progress in math. I wish I had this resource back then for her! I recommend this product to homeschoolers as well as those attending public schools who need some extra practice at home.
