TOS Crew Review: Mad Dog Math

With a name like Mad Dog, you may be envisioning some rabid, foaming at the mouth of a mutt who could wonder onto your property at any moment.  Well, calm your beating heart, and put down the phone as there is no need for animal control with this product. What I'm talking about here is a most useful, online fact mastery program, meant to defeat that monster of a thing which is better known as the "arithmetic basics" of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.

It certainly barks [for real, you'll hear Ruff the pooch now and again-depending on what you click] but it doesn't bite.  Mad Dog Math is meant to gently break down each level of the four basic areas, into little kibblet sizes, so the student can focus on just one section at a time. The ultimate goal of course, is to have them rattle off their facts without any hesitation.

By no means flashy-but certainly effective-the opportunity to be awarded the "2 Minute Club" sticker encourages the student to practice this rather mundane task.  Then, the the child is naturally motivated to keep working on their facts [sort of like a dog's need to keep digging for that long lost bone] so they can add the "1 Minute" and then the "30 Second Club" sticker to their collections, ultimately earning them the "Top Dog" title. Timed or not, for 10-15 minutes a day-the results are impressive.

My Boy's Experience:

Right from the start, he was engaged and delighted by the prospect of having a new program to test out.  I cannot believe the [great] timing of this product, as I had literally been wondering out loud how I could help him get his facts down pat in a friendly, non-frustrating manner just days prior to receiving it.  Once I loaded up the puppy (oh so sorry I must add in a few play on words here), I gave him the general run down, and he was off and running.  I purposely adjusted it so that he was not timed.  I didn't want him to be all panicky like, but I did show him that it was a possibility and he could add that in when he felt he was ready.  

He has been spending about 15 minutes a day in several of the sections (he moves around from addition to subtraction to multiplication-but has avoided the division for the most part), and I have seen his little face light up when he earns a sticker or a check mark in the list of accomplished facts.  He is learning them!  He and I both agree that we like how he can type in the answer to the problem and it automatically takes him to the next one, making the moving along process smooth and non-annoying.  And like the lazy virtual dog owner that I am-I can just do an occasional walk by to see how the boy and Ruff are doing [and that puts a smile on my face] because this is a pretty self-sufficient program.  Ya gotta love that.

Now, like I mentioned, it isn't the most flashy program on the market, but that is OK.  I am pleased with it because there is no need for a circus event every time I want my child to learn something-especially something as necessary as basic math fact retention. If it works, it works. And the Mad Dog Math program works quite nice for my fam.

TOS Crew Review: Science Weekly

In today's cyber world technology it is still nice to receive a fun packet in the mail (obviously not bills) and this product is no exception.  Science Weekly is a bit like those magazines we used to get as kids, but focused on all things relating to earth/life/physical science, technology or mathematical in nature.  Two issues arrive in one's post box during the school year (Sept-April), to be used to further their child(ren)'s knowledge and add some fun back into their studies.  Originally geared toward the typical classroom environment, this series is another way to add some sparkle to one's homeschool curricula as well.  

We received the Fractions issue [Vol. 27, no. 5] to explore [they included one handout per level] along with the teaching notes [with answers to student's worksheet questions and additional ideas].  Each "packet" is approximately 4 pages worth of info-which includes a description of the topic at hand, then a practical demonstration highlighting it (so for the fractions one-the level B has the student looking at an apple and grapes which have been divided into equal parts), a vocabulary section, a weekly lab (fun idea for highlighting the concept), a math section, a small writing opportunity, a challenge that asks for the child to practice what the concept they have been learning about, and finally a "Bringing it Home" section to wrap up the study. Some of the higher levels dropped a couple of the last ones, added a puzzle challenge and/or even a "Further Your Interests" and "Meet the Scientist" section; whilst the lower levels kept it more simple by not offering more than a typical child that age would want to cover. 

My son and I worked through the C-E levels and found the "Weekly Lab" to be our favorite part of the series.  Most of what they ask the student to do is easily obtainable through every day items found in your home. So it isn't difficult to carry out the experiments at all.  It is charming and a fun way to incorporate a few subjects which usually produce moans and groans from frustrated students and teachers alike.  For about $1.33 per issue/per student, it really isn't that bad of a deal actually.   What's more, they now have an interactive program online [this is a great test to see if you like the product], along with printable coloring pages to explore.

This as a supplementary item to one's regular studies, and for those with children who love to do paperwork and science experiments-then this is a wonderful way to go about reinforcing their interests.  It is definitely a traditional approach to learning. So depending on your teaching method, it may or may not be a good choice.   Oh, and for those who use the workbox method, this would be a good item to tuck into a box for an occasional "fun" activity.  As for us, it was interesting to try but not something we would normally seek to acquire for our homeschool. Now I am not implying that the Science Weekly publication is terrible or not worthy of further investigation/subscribing to.  Actually it is a nice complementary tool for some to use in their studies, and could certainly bless many homeschoolers.  For us,  it just is not our regular "cup of tea".   

the younger set will need your assistance and some experiments will also need supervision

TOS Crew Review: Math Galaxy

So math is not your "thang" (as it truly is not mine) or maybe it isn't your child's either. I am sure there are times when you wish you could say-jettison yourself far, far away into a whole 'nother galaxy-other days perhaps just use the math text as a missile to destroy an incoming meteor. I mean really-I don't recall Will and Penny Robinson [Lost in Space] plugging away on any old, boring math book. They had the robot to help with computation, and tons of gadgets which dazzled and intrigued them instead. Well dear math-challenged friends [actually even non-mathaphobs will enjoy this product], there is something that is worth exploring called Math Galaxy.  

Because of the generosity of the folks at Galaxy of Education, we were able to download all of their products to review, which was such a blessing.  Unfortunately, due to the time limitations; and the fact that my kids are not working at, or in some of the levels-I am only able to highlight a few that met our needs.  I have to send you to the site to read up on all the concepts, and levels that are available in each software unit.  

To give you a better idea of what Math Galaxy is, I wanted to share with you this ditty from their site:

Unlike most math textbooks, which throw a mass of material at the student, Math Galaxy focuses student attention on concepts sequentially and interactively, based upon the ideas behind math manipulatives (such as counting blocks) and connecting new concepts to familiar experiences. Unlike most math software, it goes beyond simple games, low-level operations or rule memorization to link familiar and concrete experiences to higher-level processes. It goes beyond physical math manipulatives by linking each physical operation to its mathematical counterpart at each step, and by allowing manipulations that are difficult to do with physical manipulatives. It stresses concepts that run throughout all of basic math to provide basic understanding rather than memorized rules. Our goal is to provide students a foundation for analytical thinking in the modern world and for higher-level math and science. 

My 8 year old spent most of his time in the Whole Numbers Tutorial. He worked on the lessons, all the while earning a robot for each problem, which then would be used in the Labyrinth game. There is also the Word Jumbles, Riddles (cute ones) and the Bridge the Swamp to play after going through the regular concepts.  The child will have to work for some of this, so it isn't just handed over [in the game section] to them.  The presented material is what they would have already been exposed to in the red level subjects. I did have to monitor how much time was spent in these areas, because if he had his way-he'd be there the whole day.  I decided to give him a timer with the instructions that he had to spend 20 minutes in the regular lessons, and then could play for 10-15 in the games section.  Because he is a beginning reader, I did have to stay very close to give him the directions. For the children who have little or no basic reading skills, you will need to be close at hand-making this a not so "on your own" program for them.  

As with all of these Tutorials-instructions are given, showing how to get the answer, before the the student dives into it.  They will see a big  "Correct" flashing if answered as such, or the student can try a few extra times before the right answer is given. After each problem, they are also asked if they want a new one or not.  I liked that feature, because some programs make the kid go through so many of them-that they lose interest (I made my son do a certain amount before he could quite) or give up in despair .

You can also purchase the Math Riddler Worksheet Generator to go along with the above program.  It allows for you to print off worksheets which correlate with the lessons.  There are some 500 riddles, and all the problems to boot.  I especially like this software unit, since I can now access and provide extra learning materials, to reinforce what he has been working on. These are very colorful, so to save ink-we print them in gray scale.  I recommend getting both of these, so that you can offer hands-on along with the computer practice to be sure you meet your child's learning styles.

Whole Number Fun and Whole Number Worksheet examples

For our teen-we have her switching up betwixt the Pre-Algebra and the Algebra units.  She has been able to play around a bit to give me her opinion on them [we are still working on getting her more 'puter time but with all I have going lately, it is a challenge], and I have gone through some lessons, to refresh my gray matter too. We are both liking it a lot-which is a relief to this momma who is tired of running through math programs like Imelda went through shoes.  You get the same robot earning concept as the lower levels, same colorful material, and same intrigue-just with beefier concept coverage. 

We have decided to have her spend the majority of  her time working through these two programs for her math curriculum. We have hit a wall with her understanding this higher-level material (mental block I do believe), so we have put the text on hold. We are hoping that these instructions/games/riddles help her recall the basics/algebraic lessons so she can be up to speed by this fall. I will be sure to come back in a few months to update you on our progress.  Suffice it to say, I am praying this is the answer to our problems.  I have some glimmer of hope as this is the first one to really pull her into the material, and make her want to learn this stuff.  The Pre-Algebra does not have the Worksheet Generator option, but the Algebra does.  Since they are basically the same concepts, I can use this in conjunction with each other quite nicely.

Pre-Algebra example

As you can see from the selection, they cover quite a bit of material. 

Note the fact that these line up with the lessons/practice found in the Algebra Fun Tutorial program.  Again, I recommend that one purchases both of these to get a more rounded approach (some on the computer, other practice with paper and pencil. And speaking of those antiquated materials-for most of these programs you should have some available for the kiddos to use to figure out the answers). Don't forget there will be some ink expense, since you have to print these out yourself...but you can pick and choose the ones that trouble them the most-so it shouldn't be too budget unfriendly.

Algebra Fun and Algebra Riddler examples

Overall wrap up of the Math Galaxy Tutorials:

I am thinking this would mostly serve as a good supplemental, as a good tutorial product to coexist with your regular math programs. But again-as I mentioned, we'll be using it as our main program for our teen right now, until she has a much better grasp of these I guess it is up to you. You can also purchase the Fraction Fun/Worksheet Generator (W.G.), the Decimal, Proportion and Percents Fun/ WG,  the Word Problem Fun Tutorials, plus the eBooks for Whole Number, Fraction, Dec./Prop./Percents, and Algebra Riddles.  

We found the explanations and activities to be fairly clear cut [still working through the mammoth amount on each program so I can speak of what we have seen right now], addressing the major math concepts one would need in life.  The software is not as splashy as some of the other math downloads I have reviewed, but it suits our family rather nicely.  In fact, my "anti-computer math program child" stated that this is her favorite set up.  She enjoyed the lessons-which is half the battle with this student of ours. The graphics reminded her of what she designed when she built a game through another review we did.  It appealed to me too-as I tend to favor the less flashy games/graphics for our programs.  I also liked that there is no sound.  I grow tired of the noise from such products rather quickly, as I like things a bit more subdued around here.  But-I do have to point out that when my two were working through the games with the robots-they became like a bunch of chattering, wild monkeys...I actually had to tell them to "Hold it down in there!" on several occasions...they were having that much fun.  That gets two thumbs up from me-they were learning and enjoying themselves-excellent.

TOS Crew Review: Family Mint-a virtual banking system

Spearmint, peppermint, butter mint, dinner mint, creme de mint, US Mint, mint condition, and varmints-but Family Mint?  I hadn't heard that one yet-well, until I was asked to check them over and review them for TOS.  So what is Family Mint?  

Simply put-it is an online source to assist families with the vital importance of learning about money.  Yes, money.  Something that seems a bit rare these days-but none the less, one should understand it-so perhaps the up and coming generation can avoid what we are currently experiencing in our country today.  
Best yet, it won't cost you a mint to join-as it is FREE! Isn't that grand?  You can use this unique program to train your children and it won't cost you a dime.  I love that.
There are two sections to this easy to use program.  One for the Banker(s) [which in our case is my husband and myself] and the child's section.  With the Banker's assistance, the youngers can navigate this site and learn whilst doing so.  The older kids can go it "alone" because after all-they are more mature.  This virtual banking system is not connected to any real bank, because you (the parent) are the bank-this is a personal tracking system.  I actually have the basic outline of it posted below (from their website) because it best explains it.  
  • Kids log in themselves and manage their own money within FamilyMint.  From deposits, withdraws, and transfers, to working towards goals they can create themselves, FamilyMint is meant to be a place for children to learn by doing.
  • To you and your kids, this is REAL MONEY in FamilyMint.  They manage, you approve.  Every dollar in the bank is a real dollar that you owe your kids.  You are a real bank to them.
  • In essence, when they hand you cash (i.e. when they make a “Deposit”), they are giving you a loan and you are in debt to them and need to pay back that debt when they ask for it (just like your bank would for you).
  • To anyone outside your family, this is virtual money.  Nobody can hack in and steal anything because FamilyMint is just a tracking system.
  • FamilyMint is… a mixture between a personal money management tool (such as Quicken) and an online bank. There is a period of time that things can be changed, and after that they are firm (like an online bank).   You can always see a complete history of what changed.
Neat huh?  So after a few short, easy steps-we set up our 8 year old's account.  He decided to deposit his $50 (IE: handed it over to us) that he had from gifts and from his Pen/Pencil Store [more about that later].  We logged that initial deposit in for him. Now, Buddy and his father have been adding new deposits, and finally decided what he wants to work toward (a dirt bike). This will be an on-going process for a quite some time, which is great.  He will learn what it is like to make deposits, withdraw (only when necessary) and set more goals to strive toward.  We actually started savings accounts for all of our children, right after they were born-so they have had to (our requirement) deposit the majority of their earnings/gift monies into it, while being allowed to keep some cash on hand, for minor purchases. We will continue to do so (the deposits Buddy makes to us, will go into his actual account like before), just that now he has a visual step of it, using the Family Mint program.  Prior to this, the kids were not really able to "see" what it means to "do banking" -outside of having sat in the backseat (while we ran through the drive-thru),  to catch a glimpse of the tube as it sucked up the money, to then return empty-but for a measly sheet of yellow paper (and if they were lucky-a Dum-Dum sucker) in exchange.  Not a good way to "get the complete picture" of what it all entails.

This is his goal page-showing how much he needs to deposit to get the dirt bike, and how often he wants to make deposits to reach it.  Plus they have cute icons for them-or you can upload your own, and it looks like a widget that has pictures of what a kid would want to save up for (various toys, etc they can choose from).

Our son has a knack for coming up with some unique far we have had quite a slew of them-including, but not limited to: a Soap Store (baby food jars filled with water/dish soap to use for daily cleaning needs),  Hair and Back Salon (my favorite because he not only "did" hair, but lotioned up our dry hands, feet and massaged our "soldiers" [shoulders]) and his latest, the Pen and Pencil Store (sold pencils/pens/erasers, etc. to us and anyone who visited...he was quite the hoot because he would get his older siblings to donate stuff only to sell it back to them!  The real giggle was that he charged 10% shipping, even if you were standing right there!) So as you can see-he likes to come up with some creative ideas.  What is awesome about Family Mint is that we can track his business/outside earnings, and he can see it happening.  I actually have turned this whole process over to his daddy-who has stated things like, "It is really fun and easy to use." and "It's a good learning tool."  
Which sum up my thoughts about it too.

There are many creative ways to use this system.  You can do it as intended (even if you don't do allowances-like us) or come up with some unique learning projects (such as giving them fake money along with a sheet listing what they need to do-like deposit/withdraw a certain amount, set goals and so forth) to make it mini-school project, if you will.  I may be crafty enough (hopefully soon) to design some worksheets to do just that; so once a week or so, I can pop them into his workbox and then have him come to our bank. I know many of my TOS mates have been coming up with some great ideas, so be sure to read their reviews, as well.  And because it is free, there is no reason why you cannot partake.  Do it for "real" or do it for "Life Lessons 101" classes.  Either way-the children will glean valuable banking and financial skills they can carry over into their adult life.

TOS Crew Review: Math Mammoth (Revisited)

I am rather familiar with the Math Mammoth company, as I had the opportunity to review for them last year.  I found them to be quick, easy and extremely affordable.  This time around is no exception.  I was given four selections to work through with my family-2 for the elementary student and 2 for my teen.  Now before you go any further with this review, please take a hop over to my review on the Measuring and the Pre-Algebra set from last year's voyage. Be sure to come back though, as these are four different products am discussing here.

The elementary books were my favorite ones this time around.  I found them to be great supplements for my son's regular math curriculum.  I like that I could go through the wide selection of topics to then select the ones he needed the most help with.  The directions are clear and easy to understand.  Most lessons were about 2 pages-which is extremely helpful for maintaining his attention.  There are four areas of concentration the Math Mammoth worktexts are broken down into-the ones we selected are from the Blue Series.

Introduction to Fractions Grades 2-4, $4.00 eBook download
  • one-half and fourth parts
  • concept of a fraction
  • concept of a mixed number
  • adding and subtracting like fractions
  • adding and subtracting mixed numbers with like fractional parts
  • equivalent fractions with pictures
  • comparing fractions - special cases.
  • finding fractional part of a whole using division

We have just started working intensely on fractions and this suited our needs perfectly.  I simply printed the necessary lessons and popped them into his workbox for the day. And because it is for grades 1-3,  I can stretch it out over several semesters. You can download some sample pages [look for the icon on the right-hand side of the Intro to Fractions page] to test drive it for yourself.  I have included a two-page section of what my son did so you can see what a typical lesson looks like.


Early Geometry Grades 1-3, $2.75 eBook  download

Topics it covers:
  • shapes
  • creating new shapes by combining shapes
  • parallel lines
  • right angles
  • beginning lessons on area, perimeter, symmetry and solids

This is my son's favorite one so far.  I like that I have little teacher prep, and can teach the concept in a few short minutes.  I have included another picture of one of his lessons, but you can also download a few sample pages for yourself.  Again-just look on the right of the screen on the Early Geometry info page.  I will be purchasing more of these units as we progress through his math. I highly recommend this series to anyone who has a child that requires more practice in various math topics, and the price is amazingly low-hence the piggy bank icon.  You will need to print your books (but look through the site because some texts are available in hard copy) but it is minimal and can be spread out over many weeks.

You can also purchase a full math curriculum for grades 1-5 under their Light Blue Series if you are looking for a complete program.

For the younger grade levels:

The younger children will need some guidance-but not much as this serves as a supplemental activity.

I looked around and discovered some new products under the Make It Real Series. Before I discuss the ones we used-take a look see at that States by Numbers series! I am definitely getting at least our state when we cover that this coming year. This is a great way to add in some math facts whilst studying our country.

The upper Elementary through Jr/Sr high series are found under the Golden Golden and Green Series collections.


Sets, Probability , Statistics I book   Grades Jr/Sr high, $4.99
[I found it better suited for high school due to some of the concepts discussed, but if your child is working through a more advanced math text-they should be able to do some of these activities].

Topics covered:
  • mean, median, mode
  • probability
  • working with sets and combinations
  • principals of counting (percentages)
  • permutations
  • expected value
  • combinations and probability (events, theoretical, game strategy)
Check out the free download on "Rolling the Dice-using probability" for a good idea of what this covers.
 This one uses real life type examples to draw the student into what they are to be figuring out.  That way they can relate, which can be missing from most math products.  As with the upper level choice from last year, you need to know what it is you are talking about.  This is a supplemental eText and has no real instructions, outside of the answers (which thankfully, are provided just after each section), so you are on your own.  I struggled trying to explain some of these things to my teen-simply because it has been over 5 years since I taught a lot of this, and because she is a bit behind in her math to begin with.  So my advice it be sure you know what it is they are asking-unless you have a highly math directed child in your home.  Otherwise, you may become frustrated like we did. I have 2 college level students who have taken a slew of math, and even they were confused by some of the signs in the lessons (but in their defense-it too had been some time since they had Stats math classes and ones which covered these concepts), my solution is to seek the advice of a more math savvy pal to assist me.  I think I have mentioned this before-but I am NOT a math that could be why.  Neither is this student of mine.  I will add these mini-lessons in with her math program as we move along throughout the year(s).  Certainly do not let our experience keep you from trying this one-it is a true gem.  I love the way the program uses everyday objects to get the point across, and I like that I can zero in on the type of activities my student needs reinforement with...I just don't love that I have to "research" what is I am helping her with (my problem, not most folks).  And because I am one of those who will work to figure it out [eventually]-I know this will be a valuable product for my kids, once I can carve out time to do so. 


Linear Functions I    Grades 10-12, $4.99

complements Algebra I and II concepts

Topics include: 
  • linear equations (choosing cell phone plans, college graduates real world meaning of slope of a line, converting temperatures, gov't nutrition programs rate of change, life spans, making money and music downloads)
  • problems which address real world information,companies, issues
  • lessons which lend themselves very easily to group discussion/solution solving (good for co-op or HS group activities)
   Look for the free "Choosing a cell phone-Verizon" download as well.

Now to be fair to, Maria sent this to us even though it is above what we are studying (she is the gal behind Math Mammoth, and is very helpful in providing ideas and where to start information), it is above what my teen has covered up to this point, so we didn't technically use it.  I did however, provide a couple worksheets to a fellow HSing dad who also happens to teach this stuff at our local HS group.  He is a math person, and kindly offered his take on such things.  He was impressed that this is designed to use real life objects/products/services that a teen is familiar with.  He also said, that for children who need to have that kind of connection-it was a good supplement to their studies.  Of course, he was able to read the directions and then know right off the bat-what it is they are to be doing [different from my glazed over expression]. So,  I guess I simply cannot stress this sure you know what they are to be doing, or have someone who can explain these worksheets to your student(s), in order to get the full benefit of this program, as these are supplements not an instructional text.  Even though the answers are provided in a nice orderly fashion, the student has to have had some exposure to these particular math concepts in order to truly use them effectively.

For both the higher level work eTexts, we found that they will be more helpful once we have had more time to work through the material covered in right now, we have to shelf them.  I am very grateful for the opportunity to revisit the Math Mammoth site and to be able to try out a few more of Maria's great selection of eBook math materials [you can buy hard copies of some products, be sure to check the website for more information]-and I hope you too will find just what you need to help give your student extra practice, or a whole math curriculum!

for those who have no problem with such concepts
Some children will need further instruction from you/guidance-.
