The foundation of Dr Kageyamas 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 9which 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.

They used this in an after school DS Maths club for my son in year 2.

I've got the game & to be honest it's better from Yr3 (Juniors) as it has various ability levels & allows children to practise their times tables and also mental maths starting at addition / subtraction & gradually advancing to the next level. Adults can pick the hard levels - there's plenty to tax even the cleverest brains ;-).

It is very good for proper maths sums though, the sort they do at school as there seem s to be a lot of mental maths assessments done now as well as written work. :thumbsup:
