Sheer Genius is pleased to announce our new math games! We have just released 1st and 2nd grade addition and subtraction games. But there are more to come!
Although children with ADHD are often very smart, most do struggle in school. Memory impairments caused by their ADHD may affect a child's math performance in several ways. Your child may have difficulty retrieving basic arithmetic facts quickly. How often have you said to yourself. He knew the math facts yesterday but today it's like he has never seen them before. Not only is this frustrating for you, it is frustrating for your child!
It is critical that your child learns math facts and has rapid recall.
- Math facts form the building blocks for higher-level Math concepts.
- Math facts will expand their number sense as well.
- Mastering math facts will result in much faster computing. This will prepare your child for the upper grades in which math problems become much more difficult.
- If your child is struggling with recalling basic math facts, your child may lose confidence in his/her math abilities.
Now your child or students can practice their math facts but only while they are paying maximum attention to the task!
In these math activities you use your attention to gradually reveal an addition problem. As long as you are able to maintain your attention, the addition problem will be completely revealed. If you lose your attention, the math problem will start to disappear. Once the picture of the problem has been completely revealed with your attention, three smaller boxes will display possible sums of the problem and you will be prompted to Select the correct answer. You must then click on the box that contains the number that you think is the solution. You will have two tries to answer the question. You must answer within five seconds, or lose the try! There are 3 levels of difficulty. The math problems get increasingly more difficult as you move through the different levels. Sheer Genius will tell you when you are ready to move up to the next level. This process encourages you to practice your mental math skills but only while in your peak attentive state. Learning Math Facts has never been more effective or more fun!
