    Teaching Fact Families
    Rather than learning math facts through drill and practice flashcards, this is a different method for teaching the fact ‘families’. Each child learns differently. This concept of teaching kids to look at the entire fact, rather than just the sum is better for some kids. This it not a ‘toy’, but kids do have fun with it. My daughter has toted it around back and forth in her backpack. It is durable. The sound can be on or off. (I like that feature.) I also love the different levels it provides. It has provided my daughter with a mental math warm up before she takes her timed math tests in school. I need to stress that this is for school-age children. This is similar to a child learning flashcards. It isn’t a ‘fun’, interactive, points, next level game/toy.Ideas for this item’s use: -have a child use this when you can not practice math flash cards with them; -have teachers use it as a learning station during school; -use with older individuals with stroke/dementia; -great mind exercise.***UPDATE***: I keep seeing this minute math device get poor reviews. I use these so much with kids in school that I thought I could help clarify some things. (1) This is not a toy. It is a way for kids to practice their facts in a different way other than flashcards. In fact, think of these like flash cards. You wouldn’t expect kids to be motivated to use them or even think they are fun. This is just a different means of practice. (2) The noise does go off. Hold the ON button down 1/2 way. It will blink quickly indicating the sound is off. It truly is in the instructions. (3) Fact Families or Triangle Math is just another way for kids to learn routine math skills. Some kids learn in a rote manner, where they learn all their multiplication facts and then their division facts. Most the time these kids can carry that over to other areas of math. Some kids need a more global approach. Teaching kids fact families sometimes helps kids see a bigger picture of how all the facts are connected. (4) This is called MINUTE math. It is designed to go quickly just like the timed tests the kids have to take in school. Many classrooms still do the quick 1-2 minute math drill test at the beginning of the day. This is just a way for some kids to warm-up or get used to that way of doing math. (5) Your child may be gifted or advanced. However, please don’t complain if your child is younger than the recommended age for this device. Would you also complain about flash cards being to boring?SUMMARY: This is simply another means for a child to learn. I use these as a station all the time because a child can do it independently. I hope this helps answer some of the questions/concerns about the device. I also hope this helps you make an informed decision if this is exactly what you are wanting to purchase for your child.

    Untimed Mode
    There seems to be some confusion about the timer. YES, you can turn the timer off, as explained in the instructions. When prompted to select which level you’d like to play (1, 2, or 3), just hold down the button for a few seconds, and then you can play untimed.Overall, I think this little toy is pretty decent for the price. I like it more than any free flashcard app I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a bunch of them. As an educator, I think the fact-families method of learning math facts makes more sense, so long as your little one understands what s/he’s doing. Obviously the toy is limited, but that’s why it’s only $10-15 as opposed to the flash master which is $50.

    Best way to practice the “facts”
    Finally a simple way to practice math facts with 4th & 5th graders without carrying around all those flash cards. All 4 functions, forwards & backwards. Quick and easy! Love it!

    No subtraction nor division?
    I like the way this works. My grandson has definitely increased his addition and multiplication speeds. BUT…we cannot find any way to make this do subtraction and division! The orange slide only has 2 positions. Left, addition and right, multiplication. We had no problem muting the sound or turning the timer off, but I would be a lot happier if he could also practice subtraction and division. Suggestions?

    Horrible. It clearly stated that you can use it …
    Horrible. It clearly stated that you can use it in a no timer mode. I followed the directions and tried several times. It does not work on no timer mode. It only works with the timer which does not give the kids a chance to think if they need extra time for math. It also makes them feel rushed with the constant beeping. Returning.

    Disappointing.
    I’m disappointed with this. My son is seven and very good in math. I thought this would be a good tool to reinforce addition and subtraction skills while introducing multiplication and subtraction. Unfortunately, the game has a timer that rushes the user rather than giving time to figure out the answer. By the way, I found instructions for how to turn off the timed mode, but it did not work properly. I’m returning this since that function does not work.

    We work with the triangular flash cards and this item seemed to be a great tool for self teaching time
    I read multiple reviews before ordering this product as I wanted a device to teach my grandsons their ‘fact family numbers’. We work with the triangular flash cards and this item seemed to be a great tool for self teaching time. Not so. For one simple reason: You can turn the timing feature off but all that does is make it possible for you to do as many problems as you would like—not being restricted to just the amount you can complete in 60 seconds. It does NOT keep each problem on the device for a longer period of time so budding math students can think through the fact family and come up with the right missing digit. It only works in FLASH mode—-expecting quick responses and not pondering thoughts. Useless unless one is looking for a fast quiz for known facts. Not good for LEARNING those facts. Still debating returning it as it may be of some use in the future but not helpful now with a 1st and 2nd grader still learning the basic adding and subtracting combos. I’m wondering if they intentionally leave the clarity of what ‘turning off timing mode’ really means off their product description. In my mind when it says you can ‘turn off the timing mode’, it means you can turn off the necessity for speed in the problem solving, not just the time limit.

    Ehhh, Not Impressed
    Have to push keys harder than I expected, but easier for the kid than me. Not enough variety in the random order of problems–repeats some too often. Overall, not too bad, and electronic is more motivating for most kids. As a teacher, mother, and grandmother, I’m just not impressed.
