Trickomatics! Math is a particularly important subject for children to learn because each concept builds on the next. If they fall behind on a certain concept or fail to grasp it, chances are good that they’ll continue to struggle in math from that moment on. So, it’s very important that they learn basic concepts like multiplication. Trickomatics employs unique and enjoyable “tricks” (called mental math) to help children between the ages of 7-11 to compute multiplication problems without the stress that normally accompanies this process. Kids interact with fun cartoon characters and can ask for hints to enable them to move through the process of solving a problem.
The Trickomatics team is also thrilled to announce that they are developing a math-related show with PBS that I think kids are going to love! Check out the trailer below:

The Trickomatics program is available for both Mac and PC. I hope you’ll pick up a copy for your children for the summer. They’ll be happy to play a new game, and you’ll be thrilled to know that they are building problem-solving skills and getting better prepared for the next school year!
