TOS Review: Mad Dog Math

Today's review is Mad Dog Math.  Mad Dog Math is a supplement program that can be added to any current math curriculum.  It is a fun way to get in the necessary drills of math.  If your child has not mastered addition, subtraction, multiplication or division then they will never move on to a higher math with ease.  Drill, drill, drill is the best way that we have found for a student to learn these facts.  And Mad Dog Math makes the drilling process FUN!  Your tour guide is Ruff the dog!  Your student competes against himself and tries to get a better time.  The student can go at his own level and progress at his own speed.  I had each of my children spend just 10 minutes a day on the drill lessons and there confidence was really boosted as there problems became harder and harder and their time became less and less!  Your child can earn stickers after completing so many levels.

Mad Dog Math - at Home is for whom? (from the website)

 A family whose child is in a Mad Dog Math school/classroom
 A teacher who is using Mad Dog Math in the classroom
 A parent who is using Mad Dog Math at home to supplement what is going on in his child’s classroom
 A home school family who is using Mad Dog Math
 After school programs using Mad Dog Math
 Tutoring centers using Mad Dog Math
 Any child who wants to improve his computation skills

Here is a sample screen of what you will find.

You can purchase Mad Dog Math at home software for $19.99 for a 1 year license, a 2 year license for $29.99, or a perpetual license (one that does not need renewing) for $39.99.

You can also try a trial version for yourself here!  Scroll down and pick   which version you need - 32 bit or 64.  If you have no idea which one, you can find out where to look there too!

Would our family purchase this?  Yes, the perpetual license is well worth the value!
