The foundation of Dr Kageyama's Maths Training is 100 square calculations, a method conceived by Kageyama Hidea, a Japanese elementary school principal. The DS is held side ways like a book and all answers are written using the stylus. The key principal of the software is repetition which according to Kageyama stimulates the brain. The main exercise, 100 cells maths, consists of 100 hundred simple maths problems combined into a 10 by 10 grid using the numbers at the top and side of the grid. There are however many other exercises, ranging from simple one digit math problems to slightly more complex three digit challenges.
  • The selection of three exercises changes every time the user advances to the next level - which happens every five days
  • Depending on speed and accuracy a player will be rewarded with a bronze, silver or gold medal and a listing in the top three best times for that particular exercise
  • The software keeps track on the days in which the users trained by rewarding them with 'tick' mark in the built-in calendar

 Brilliant way to brush up on your maths

| | See all PastyHelen's reviews (1)

If you are anything like me, you will find this game a great way to boost your confidence with basic maths.

I am postgrad educated BUT maths has always been my weak spot and I have always been under confident especially doing calculations in my head. This game starts off VERY basic such as 2+2 and flash cards with a certain number of symbols on that you have to count etc.. but gets your brain working and does get harder and harder as you go through the exercises. No its not degree level or even A level standard, more akin to basic GCSE arithmetic but if you practice a little every day like me you get better and better and soon when someone says "What's 8 9's again?" or " What's this add this?" you will be the one to answer them.

The game consists of daily tests which after several days of play change to a harder level. You can then either have a go on the hundred cell calculation method which is great for getting your brain working on simple calculations or work your way through the exercises which go from simple times table practice to long division and multiplying large numbers.

A must for under confident people who need a refresh, but not suited for people who are already great with maths as it will be too easy.

 Brilliant for kids

As a maths tutor I've been recommending it to all my younger students. Exam success is vital these days and speed of the essence. If you can calculate fast then you increase your thinking time for maths concepts and this is a key to success. So yes, it is a little tedious if you are good at maths, and yes number recognition for 4 and 8 can be tricky, but if it gets kids making basic maths techniques second nature it's brilliant...and practice in this case certainly makes faster and more accurate if not perfect. Dropped the star only for the recognition flaws which badly affects your time...perhaps they could freeze the time if you need to go back to re-enter in the next version?

 Love playing this

I really like this game. It does start off easy. But you move up a level after 5 days, so it does get harder. Lots of practice excercises and I like the 100 cell calculation as well. I agree though with one of the previous reviews about the handwriting recognition. With me it has a problem recognising the number 14. When this happens obviously it affects your score. It's good for adults and also for kids to learn their times tables. Have dropped one star because of the handwriting recognition, but overall a good game and would recommend.

 disappointment :(

not what i expected at all. Its just too easy. definately for the children. i expected it to be challenging like the brain training but its the complete opposite. plus it doesnt quite pick up the numbers i write in, which can be irritating.

 Very good. Worth Buying.

You start off on level 1 which is easy and then it increased your levels as you play each day.
They also 10 levels of practice, where they is a timer to beat. They lots of different math activities like, flash cards, sentence sums, time tables, etc...
It good for all the family. My son is learning his eight times table from this game.
