    I am amazed and so happy to have purchased this. An excelent tool that is extremely valuable to all students.
    I would love to become a rep in Australia for the Maths Shark. I feel it to be a necessity to all school students.
    Something all schools should make compulsory.
    Please contact me if this is somehow possible for me to do this over here for you.

    My six year old daughter loves playing this game. The only complaint I have is that I am having a hard time convincing her that she can do more than level one, which goes in numerical order. Level 2 is where it starts mixing up the problems. I am confident we will get there though. I would recommend it. She seems to be getting faster with her math work. The first game that was shipped to us didn't work, but CBD was very quick to send a replacement which works fine.

    An easy and fun way to drill the basics. It's also durable. Our first one had years of heavy use. I'd buy it again myself--I did! :0)

    I purchased this for my 7 yr old grandson's birthday and he loves it! So do both of his brothers (8&5). It's a little confusing going from game mode to calculator but once they got the hang of it they have had hours of fun while learning!

    I would highly recommend this product because it has both sequential and non-sequential games for math practice.

    I am very happy with this product because the different levels allows me to choose specifically which set of facts my daughters need to practice.

    Very poor LCD screen. Display of problems is very poor. This is to bad because it could be a good tool for math drills. Does not give kids good feed back for 10 correct answers. Could use more bells and whistles for little cost.

    I was disappointed in the product. My kids quickly figured out that everything goes in order (1+0=1, then 1+1=2...)...no random selection by the product. So, they don't even have to try to figure the equations out.

    This is a great tool for a child who is a visual learner. My son likes to practice and see if the answer it correct by the light. A great tool to help your child improve his Math skills
