I had the opportunity to try out Educational Insights Math Slam and we also are giving away a Math Slam to one lucky MomMomOnTheGo fan courtesy of Educational Insights.
Math Slam features FIVE fun games that reinforce important math concepts such as sequencing, addition and subtraction facts, missing numbers, and triple addition and subtraction. Math Slam is great for self-directed practice at school or home.
Math Slam Features:
*Automatically shuts down after 30 seconds of inactivity.
*Answer Paddles (Choose the paddle with the right answer.)
*Easy to read large numbers
*5 Game Buttons
The 5 Games are Slam It Up, Sum Slam, Subtraction Slam, Mystery Slam and Triple Slam.
Slam it up is a number ordering game. Mystery Slam is Random addition equations with one addend missing and the answer showing. Triple Slam is Random addition and subtraction with one addend missing and the answer showing.
Math Slam is rated for Ages 5 and up and for grades Kindergarten and up. We used our Math Slam and our 4 year old enjoys the game as well. With my assistance she was able to use the Math Slam and was Slamming It Up and doing Addition and Subtraction at 4.
I truly love the Math Slam and think it is an awesome, fun resource for helping children get excited about Math.
