Watch A Video Demo Of Quarter Mile Math To See How It Works!

With only forty-four topics, but over 21,000 problems, this drill software's broad spectrum includes decimals, percents, and topics from the simplest negative number concepts through pre-algebra.

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.

Does not work on our November 23, 2014
Reviewer: Nancy B.  
Does not work on our computer, It was a complete waste of money. TD Reply: Update 12/19/14: <br/>Timberdoodle reached out to the publisher on our customer's behalf and they were able to send her the fix for the problem she was having. <br/> <br/>Followup comment from customer on 11/24/14: <br/>I would like to "update my review to show that Timberdoodle's costumer service has been helpful[.] I also forgot to include that the Mathmatical Reasoning level k book we order was received in perfect condition and that my daughter is really enjoying it. I was second guessing if we wanted to use your curriculum for our daughter's first grade year worried that some items may be received damaged and I am relieved by the way Timberdoodle is handling this. I was so excited to discover your company and then so disappointed with our first purchase. I will keep the cost of shipping and delivery time in mind on future orders. Thank you for giving me a reason to order from you again." <br/> <br/>Original comment: <br/>Nancy, we are so sorry the Quarter Mile Math did not work for you! You are welcome to return it (http://www.timberdoodle.com/returns.asp) for a refund or if you would like help getting tech support you may contact us at customerservice@timberdoodle.com or 1-800-478-0672.

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.
