MathBreakers!

0x0ss (1) Math was always my least favorite subject when I was in school…mostly because I found it difficult to understand…and well, I was the kind of student who would rather write a 10 page book report than learn a new math concept! 😉 It’s funny how the ‘tables have turned’ now though. Here I am, a mom of 5 beautiful children, and I am homeschooling them – teaching them the very same math that I disliked! The only difference is that since I’m their teacher, I get to be a bit creative and find ways that are more fun than worksheets to help us learn math well.

One of the most recent math discoveries was Mathbreakers. This is, by far, the most FUN math game or activity that we’ve come across so far. Simply put, it is a learning video game for grades 1-6….but really, it is so much more than that! It is a chance for your kids to explore a 3-D world while mastering addition, operators, negatives and fractions at their own pace.

Our oldest, who is in Grade 4 this year is “hooked” on Mathbreakers! When I first showed it to him, he commented on how it was “math game” and he didn’t want to do a math game – but it only took about 5 minutes for him to be sold on the game. After that he CHOOSE to do Mathbreakers during his allotted amount of computer time each day. Success!!

0x0ssSo, here’s a little taste into the world of Mathbreakers…It is a world of toys and machines. Each one can give you all sorts of different results. Experimenting with how these gadgets work is 100% encouraged as it reinforces the underlying concepts that the toys are based on. Each time our kids find a new toy they insist that I come and check it out…and there are some pretty fun ones in there! Mathbreakers is a world where worksheets and flash cards do not exist…but numbers certainly do, and through finding the correct solutions to different number barricades and puzzles, you’ll discover a world of castles, magic and fun!

Mathbreakers is Common Core aligned and in our opinion, it is an ideal way to help kids build a strong math foundation. For us it is the perfect activity that is both fun and affordable and that comes alongside our regular schoolwork and reinforces and builds on our childrens’ math skills.

  1. I just saw this on your FB page. I’m thinking of getting the game for my daughter, it’s so important for girls to do well in math.

    I used to love maths in school and was pretty good at it, I even did A level maths too. I think this is a great game for kids to get used to maths and learn how it all works. Another thing that’s good for teaching kids basic maths is playing dice and I think that’s because they can picture the numbers through the dots.

    Math was NEVER my strong subject in school, I would have chosen to read or write a book report too! This is why I am glad for educational games such as these to give my kids a boost in their learning and it’s an added bonus that it is fun for them!

    Looks like a great program. Math was my least favourite subject in school and I never excelled at it.
