“Great fun but I would like the children to have to do more of the maths exercises in order to earn time in their study or with their monkey. It seems possible to do a lots of playing without much maths!”
“we were offered a discount after not initially taking on after trial as deemed it initially too expensive to justify . I liked this , I think it is well worth paying for now and I believe is great value for money .”
“I use Whizz for 3 kids at different ages and levels
I like the short lesson as other programmes we have found don't teach but just test
Occasionally if they are struggling it seems to just tell them to stop whereas maybe a 'STOP - can you ask an adult for help' sign might enable them to get a different understanding of what they are doing?
Also, in some of the practice 10 questions they seem to start with the harder questions and get easier!!
I like they have to earn credit to play the games and that each session is a perfect amount of time.”
“My son really enjoys the new version of Maths-Whizz and seems to understand most of it. He Likes the the interactive sessions, which are then re-enforced with the ordinary maths, which we like! My husband was sceptical, but agreed to give it a go and we are glad that we did. Our only gripe is that once you log-in, it defaults to the student page and we can’t find the parent dashboard. My husband who is good with computers can’t find it either, so we can’t review my sons progress. We would like to have a link which is easy to find and we can log-in ourselves without spending hours looking for it.”
“I took Mathwhizz for 3 grandchildren, 2 like it. The eldest one is not interested because it went on giving him exercices much too easy for him. It may be because he was correctly judged one year ago and improved a lot since, but not with Mathwhizz and when he tried again, Mathwhizz did not adjust
