I remember improving my spelling and vocabulary with Scrabble. I was hoping this would do the same with math for my daughter. So far, so good. It's given my daughter great self-confidence in Math. She was doing division with fractions in the game, which she hasn't learned yet in school.
Only complaint:The tiles are cardboard and thin. Easy to lose, but they come in a ziploc type bag.
Better yet, my husband and I find it fun too! We played it the other night with him, and after he went to bed, we continued on the game for another 45 minutes. It's challenging for adults, which you can't say about too many games you usually play with your elementary school kids.
Now for some tips. The tiles included have addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division signs, whole numbers between 0 and 9, and a bunch of fractions. Mostly easy ones, like 1/2, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, etc, but there are some tougher ones like 5/6 and 2/6 in there. Your kid will need to know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers AND fractions to play with this set of tiles. I'd say 4th or 5th grade level of math. Otherwise, order the Junior set of tiles to go with this game board. Those tiles have more addition and subtraction signs, and no fractions. I see there is an advanced set that lets you do negative numbers and more complex equations, too, which we will definitely get as he gets older.
The only drawback, honestly, is that the tiles are made of really thick cardboard. They aren't really plastic tiles like I remember from Scrabble.
This game is great for the kid who loves math. I highly doubt that if your kid is struggling in math that this will help them. You actually have to be good at it for this to be fun; otherwise, the strategy involved is too frustrating when you are already struggling with how to do the operations. This is also really fun for adults who like math too!
