I received this item for my daughter who is 12. She loved the item and even said this makes math fun! If you click on the addition you add numbers and the subtract button is for subtraction. There is no multiplication or division on this game. If you click on the three exclamation points, you will add three numbers together. This increased the level of complexity. If you click on the question mark, it provides an addition problem with a missing addend. The arrow button allows you to put numbers in order from least to greatest. Overall, a great product!

Put the batteries in and my 7-year-old started playing. Within the first couple problems it became apparent that the largest of the answer buttons was difficult to press, taking multiple tries at several angles before taking the answer. Then the wrong answers started popping up. Sometimes it gave the sound for a wrong answer when it was correct, and at the end it still said all of them had been correct. Occasionally it didn't show the correct answer at all, which usually turned out to be a problem in displaying the correct answer with the digits transposed (e.g., you could press "21" when the correct answer was "12", and it would make the sound for a correct answer. Put it back in the box and testing the "satisfaction guaranteed" part now.

Comments about Educational Insights Math Slam Electronic Game:

Super fun way to get my first grader to practice his math facts! He loves to play the timed games. Flash cards are boring and work sheets are repetitive but this truly is fun. I find that if I leave out out he will pick it up and play throughout the day. Many different skill levels and the option of addition and subtraction make it a toy we will have and use for a long time. Thank you so much for making something that makes the homework struggle much less of a battle!

    My 5-1/2 year old doesn't enjoy math, but she enjoyed playing with Math Slam and didn't even realize she was learning. This is definitely a breath of fresh air compared to all of the boring worksheets they make them do in Kindergarten.

      Comments about Educational Insights Math Slam Electronic Game:

      My kids love this. I must confess that they don't always use it as designed. Frankly, just slapping the things is pretty darn fun for a 5 and a 3 year old. My 5 year does get to use it as its designed a bit. There are 5 different games on it. One where you put the numbers in order, one where you add two numbers together, one where you subtract one number from another, one set up in an algebraic way (4 + ? = 6), and the last is called triple slam. In triple slam, there are 3 numbers to add or subtract -- ex. 9 + 2 - 3 = ?

      The volume level goes from nice and quiet to not super annoying. The constant banging can get annoying for me (I have a noise thing), BUT the game is super durable and withstands all the banging/slamming. And there is a headphone jack if quiet is necessary -- or you have multiplication going on in the car at the same time.

      We are a homeschooling family and this is one of the learning toys that I allow them to get out on Monday's which is our game day. It's also a great car toy and because we have 3 similar ones, there are even enough to go around (Math Slam, Math Shark & and Multiplication Slam). I recommend it to anyone who would like to ensure their children's mastery of the math facts, whether you are in in public, private or home school. You can only do so many worksheets and flashcards. This is great for independent practice.

      My kids that I treat with special needs love it for the cause and effect. My kids who are higher functioning do like to play with it, but it seemed like when they got excited and hit the pads a little harder, I thought the toy was going to break. But overall, this game is a fun game. I also let me friend's kids play with it, they thought it was fun and spent all night playing with it.

        This is a fun way to review math facts. My 5 year old had some trouble with it and needed assistance but my nine year old loves the challenge. I would say it is better for older kids, even on the lowest level. I like that my kids find it fun but it is still teaching them a lot! It works well as described.

        Comments about Educational Insights Math Slam Electronic Game:

        This is my almost 6 year old daughter's new favorite toy! She loves addition and subtraction facts and this is awesome for her to do on her own to review. I wish there was a backlight to use it in the dark on a car ride or as she's curled up in bed at night. But she can seriously sit with this for at least an hour. She really enjoys it. As a homeschooling mom, I love that she thinks math is fun!

        We received a free set of Math Slam in exchange for my honest opinion about it.

            We received the Math Slam game for review. I was totally impressed with this game. My 7 year old daughter does not like flash cards- even the Hot Dots type lose their appeal for her very quickly. This game is so much cooler than flash cards. It makes a fun game with several options for play out of learning math facts. You can also go up in difficulty, so it will last for a few years of learning. I love that it cycles the questions back through again when they get the answers wrong- this gives them the opportunity to really learn it. It is fun for my daughter to try to beat her time from before when she plays another round. she does not play this every day- but fairly often. She is definitely more excited to practice math with this game than any other way I had tried so far.

              Math Slam is a hit at our house and in my classroom! My daughter (age 5) is enjoying practicing her addition and subtraction fluency using this fun, game. Math Slam allows you to select to practice addition or subtraction at various levels. You can indicate by pressing a button which level you would like to play on. The thing I like most about this product is that during the game, any questions you miss return back to the screen to have more than one opportunity to solve. My students love this product as well and it is perfect for our math center. This would be great for any kid age 5+ who is ready for addition and subtraction.

                I used this product with my students who were more advanced in the mathematical concepts of addition. They seemed to like it. It kind of reminded me of the old SIMON game with a twist for today. It would be best used in small groups or one-on-one in the classroom. I would recommend for later in the year Kindergarten and above.

                              I bought this to help my daughter with Attention Deficit Disorder focus on learning her math facts (addition and substraction). She used it during 1st and 2nd grade, and we saw a sharp increase in her timed test scores (both at home and school). One of the things I really liked was its durability--kids who don't really like math will enjoy "slamming" it--really hard--and it stands up to all that abuse!

                                I was given this product to review and we love Math Slam! My husband will be bringing it to his 2nd grade classroom next week, but at home our 4 year old son can do simple addition so he can play the Sum Slam level on this game. It really makes him think, and since the game is timed he is always wanting to get a better score. A positive feature is that the incorrect problems are recycled and asked again so the child has to learn the right answer- not just guess. We as parents love that there is a place for headphones so my son can use it in the car. The level and game options really span quite a range of ages. If you are looking to reinforce math in a fun way I recommend this product!
