Personal Trainer: Math


Write in answers with the DS stylus

Review Excerpt: Now you can turn your child’s Nintendo DS into a math learning aide. This title, one of a series of self improvement titles from Nintendo, puts thousands of math facts — and their answers — at your child’s fingertips
Developed by Japanese math teacher Hideo Shogakukan, the $20 cartridge combines a calendar based record-keeping system with timed sets of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication math problems. Because you enter your answers in writing, this is one of the few games where penmanship counts. You can choose to take a daily test, or fill in a grid with as many as 100 problems in one sitting — ranging from counting to division equations. The better you do, the higher your score, which is saved along with earned medals. A single cartridge enables up to 16 other players to compete by downloading one of the quizzes, so you can turn a school bus into a rolling math contest.
