Another Best Deal on the Planet!

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to offer the BEST DEAL ON THE PLANET for Ko's Journey, an award-winning online interactive middle school math game and curriculum supplement from Imagine Education.

Engage your Middle School Student in Math

Ko's Journey can help students in grades 5 through 8 improve their foundational math skills while developing their higher-level problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

The program was developed over a span of seven years by a middle school math teacher, Dr. Scott Laidlaw, and has been tested by math teachers in both public and private school settings.

Ko's Journey is a story-based game about Ko, a girl in an ancient wilderness who is separated from her kin. Her spirit grandfather helps her find a guidebook to teach her how to travel through the wilderness back to her people. Along the way, Ko encounters many challenges that require math, such as saving a wolf cub by mixing medicinal plants in particular ratios, or encountering "Luna of the Night Sky" who teaches her how to find the North Star by using her culture's method of mapping with Cartesian Coordinates.

This web-based, online instruction is self-paced to support different learning speeds and provides personalized feedback as the student progresses through the story.

The main features of Ko's Journey are:

  • 15-hour curriculum of core middle school math embedded in rich story
  • Easy online setup and administration
  • Automatically tracks student progress and assignments
  • Excellent preparation for state testing (includes pre and post tests)
  • Interactive learning environment with peer teaching
  • Creative tool aimed at addressing emotional resistance to math
  • Empower student comprehension of fundamental concepts

I have been impressed with Ko's Journey. Although my son was stumped a couple of times, he kept at it until he found the answer. And that is saying a lot when it comes to math! He has finished the journey, but I am sure he will take it again. I am pleased with this product and highly recommend it! Thank you, We would not have taken this "journey" without the Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

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)

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!

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 daughter loved this game. She put a lot of effort into it and it really challenged her.
Sara McGrath, Co-op Member
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)

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)

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.
Renee A, Co-op Member
It is not surprising that my daughter loves Ko's Journey, since she loves all things related to archery. Having a main character with a bow and arrow who has to hunt for her food was a real hook for her. I love that it ties math to real applications and not just numbers on a page.
Kristin W., Co-op Member
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)
