This is the age of technology and by no means does that leave out our homeschool classroom. The boys aren't huge fans of computer time for the classroom, computer time is a reward system for them, but I did learn that the occasional break from the school table helps them review in a different environment. So, I was intrigued by CapJaxMathFax.
CapJaxMathFax is a computer program incorporating Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication , and Division in a fun environment where the goal is make sure children have basic math skills. The program can be downloaded or a CD-rom purchased to load on your computer. We loaded it onto my net-book as well as Daddy's desktop computer to give us flexibility since the program does not requirement an internet connection.
As the boys work through more and more levels they will earn merit badges and although there aren't any flashy games, they are enjoying the sense of accomplishment from the program.
The program is a good value for $29.95. You can also download a free short term demo version to see what your kids think of the program. I would put this as a definite possibility on our budget.
