My son first tried Ko's Journey when he was in the 4th grade. He enjoyed playing it, but was unable to get to the end due to not having enough math knowledge at that point. He asked to try it again the summer before his 7th grade year. He loved it so much that he finished the game in about a month! There were a few times that he had to really stop and think about how to solve the problems, and a couple of times that he asked for help. He was able to do most of the work by himself, and he had fun doing it.

I really appreciate the price of K...(more)

We loved Ko's Journey. Getting my daughter to do math homework is often an uphill battle, but this program had her spending hours on the computer trying to figure out the solutions so she could advance to the next part of the story... and in the process figuring out math concepts which are far above her grade level. I wish there were other products like this!

Middle school burn out hit us hard in the area of mathematics. I needed something to stir the imagination while incorporating materials previously learned. Ko's Journey was just what we needed. I used it as an assessment; my son saw it as a break. His only complaint was that the graphics ran a little slow on our laptop. It was well worth the Co-op price!

Son likes the program. Plays it as part of his math school work. I like that I can log in and see what he has missed so we can work on those items. Like that it was affordable. It also gives my son a chance to play a fun game and learn too.

I purchased Ko's Journey about 2 years ago or maybe one and half years ago and my daughters who are now 11yrs old struggled through the pretest and didn't want to do it. I thought to give it another go recently and emailed the company and they RESTARTED the game for FREE. We tried it again this month and they whizz through it in less then a month and LOVED it. They rushed to it everyday and were so sad when it ended. They learned a lot from it. I say make sure you cover slopes, coordinate graphing, percentages, decimals and fractions well befor...(more)

Sarah (10) my mid to high leveled learner has been working through Ko's Journey since September.

She loves it. There is a PDF which supports each lesson and offers expansion exercises. We enjoyed these and this did exactly what they were meant to do - they expanded the course to contain a higher level of content and integrity.

We are only sad because this journey is ending.

For the price I do feel it would be better for the student to be able to go over the journey more than once. The only change to content I would make is t...(more)

My son had burnt out on his traditionally formatted text and workbook. It was important to me, though, to keep working on important math concepts. Kos Journey covers many of the concepts we had left for the year, but in a much more fun and engaging way.

My son used Ko's Journey over the summer to reinforce concepts that he had learned over the year. He generally tends to dread math of any kind, but Ko's Journey made the math challenges fun and engaging. It is hard to find interactive math programs that incorpate a stimulating platform into learning for older children. We have used other programs whose directions were unclear or whose interface was difficult to use. I have to say that this is the best math program of its kind. Furthermore, the program has been updated since we initially subscri...(more)

My advanced 4th-grade son watched the short video explaining Ko's Journey and was mesmerized from the get-go. He worked daily at the game and it took him about 2 weeks to complete the journey. Because of his age I permitted him use of a calculator; I wanted his fascination with the story and the concepts to not be tarnished by his prodding through calculations. (If he was older I wouldn't have let him take those short-cuts.) I can assure you his love of math grew through this game, several basic math concepts were solidified, and he enjoyed the...(more)

My daughter enjoys the game until the test portion. There she is very frustrated. For example, tonight we worked on part 2 of the game, Travel. The game talked about velocity and calculating distance based on velocity. The test then had a problem adding up purchases and applying sales tax as a percentage. Multiplication with percentages and moving decimal places was not taught in the game portion and was not something covered in my daughter's 5th grade math curriculum yet. When purchasing this game, I was under the impression that concept...(more)
