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 like that this incorporates maths concepts into a real life situation. That appeals to me greatly. Jake does struggle with it somewhat in that he needs to commit an hour at a time, which for an off task child is challenging. I would love to see the program adapted so that it had half hour segments but I still recommend the program to others regardless.

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)

My 11 and 13 year old boys weren't too sure about "another math game", but this one keeps their interest and they WANT to figure it out. In fact, I've seen them do a level several times, b/c they weren't satisfied with how they did! My only complaint is that we have 1.5 Mpbs DSL, and even though the game is supposed to work at that speed, it's way too jerky in the speech. This isn't really a problem with Kos-Journey, just our Internet. This game will keep your kid's interest and stretch their brains!

My son woke each morning itching to continue Ko's Journey. Students apply knowledge of ratios, percentages, etc to solve concrete problems, and my son was hooked from the moment he started. The price wasn't discounted through the Co-op, but at $12 for the experience, we thought it was money well spent.

This was a wonderful way to get my daughter interested in math. She had struggled with math due to concepts she wasn't taught before we started homeschooling. Ko's Journey helped her realize that she can do math.

I picked this up for my 6th grader, who struggles with math, and 'hates it.' We started working on Ko's Journey together, and he got into it and was understanding the concepts very quickly in the live context of the story. We got busy and were not able to 'journey' for a few weeks. He's been asking me every day when we can get back to it! I am so impressed by how rather complicated concepts are presented and make sense to us, and especially to students who ask, 'Why do I have to learn all this dumb stuff, anyway?' :) I will be using this again ...(more)

We love the drama of the game, the back ground music and the tone of the characters voices adds so much to the excitement of play. However, my 11 year old, sixth grade student is finding Kos Journey quite a challenge. He does ask to play it daily, though he is not getting very far very quickly. Having said that, it does stimulate his intellect and by the conclusion of the game I know that he will have benefited greatly.

My 11 year old daughter who loves math also LOVED Ko's Journey. Her only complaint throughout the whole course was that it was over too soon.

The only frustration I had was when to stop the interactive portion and complete the associated lessons and watch video. Maybe I'm just dense but a queue from the program, "Stop here and complete lesson or continue with journey." As we went along, we figured it out but I would have preferred an in-your-face prompt.

At first I found the associated live-video portion of the program EXTREMELY annoy...(more)

My 13yr old son has always struggled in math. He has found it boring and it has always been a fight to get him to work on his math. First off, never have the words, "Mom can I do my math first?" EVER come out of my son's mouth. With Ko's Journey he was eager to do math! He wanted to learn, wanted to get to the next stage, and did not get frustrated even when he had a rough time with a particular part of the storyline. He just kept at it working it out over and over again until he got it correct. I found that concepts I had been trying to ...(more)
