About Quarter Mile Math:
We have offered a number of math drillwork computer programs in the last twenty years. What has been fairly common in all of them is the lack of a game mode. It is apparent to us that those programs that involve playing an adventure game spend a proportionally small amount of time doing math.

In the past, the only alternatives were computerized flashcards; not entirely mesmerizing, but certainly effective. So now we are delighted to be able to bring you The Quarter Mile Math Program, unquestionably the best blend of entertainment and education that we have seen.

First, the educational side: you will find the scope of The Quarter Mile Math Program to be vaster than any that you have ever investigated. The topics covered go way beyond basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. For younger children, topics include counting and place value. For older children, the subject matter contains fractional coefficients and concepts through pre-algebra, with all manner of topics in between.

Remember, though, this is drill work only. Your child will need to learn the subjects another way. Nevertheless, you will find this program to be beneficial for day-to-day drilling and indispensable if your child needs to prepare for state math tests which include time trials.

The entertainment side involves the choosing of a car or horse to represent the player. His rider-less horse or car accelerates with each correct answer to a “flashcard-type” problem. The horses or cars in the other five lanes are the exact replays of his top five previous races. Therefore, the child is constantly motivated to compete against his own personal best. Because elapsed times are calculated to 1/1,000th of a second, even the slightest improvement is registered, but displayed in a way that a young child can understand.

There is an additional savings if you choose to purchase the entire program at once, but our suggestion is to buy only what you will use for the next two to three years. Technology is changing so rapidly that it is really not wise to buy a computer program today that you anticipate your child will “grow” into. However, those of you blessed with a houseful of children will find that the bundled set will be a very cost effective way for you to go.

Excellent program - useable with all 5 of my kids April 27, 2011
Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
This is a wonderful, simple program that is useable with all five of my kids (kindergarten through 10th grade).  It is a program that drills math facts in 100s of different topics.  (Addition, subtraction, algebra, etc. etc.) you can break it down into simple focused groups, or a variety of questions.  We require our kids to spend 10 minutes a day on any topic they want (with limits - can't repeat the same ones in a row, and the older kids can't do the simpler ones) and it has improved their rote memorization of facts tremendously.  The program graphics are simple (but all you need).  My kids are very competitive and motivated to beat their own best times and proud of it when they do!  Pricy, but we've used it for years and the results have been exactly what we wanted.  When we think of how many kids it has served and all the different topics, it was definitely worth the money for us.  Enjoy!

Simple and effective October 17, 2008
Reviewer: Tammy W. from Sandy, OR  
Quarter Mile Math is simple in concept and effective. I only wish that you could automatically assign which topics children work on.
