Ko's Journey is different than any other math curriculum or program that we have used before. It incorporates middle school mathematical concepts into story form. Ko is an early human using math to find her way back to her tribe.

All my kids (3 yrs, 8 yrs and 11 yrs) LOVE it!! And my 11 yr old hates math. He loves Ko's journey and asks to do it. The younger children will watch while he is doing it. They are introduced to concepts and can comprehend a surprising amount. There is a decent amount of repetition but the main benefit is that com...(more)

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 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.

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)

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 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.

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 have been using Ko's Journey for a few weeks now. I had a slight issue with my browser and the videos and talked to the creator of Ko's Journey and he was so helpful and the glitch on my end was resolved. The program is easy to use and very engaging for the kids. My daughter is very excited and really enjoys playing...she doesn't want to stop! I think we will complete it early because she wants to do more than one lesson at at time. I actually enjoy watching her try to solve the problems because she takes it so seriously. I would HIGH...(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.

My son found this game/exercise fun and engaging. It helped him recover his sense of enjoying math after a bad experience at school. I liked that it demonstrated how math is applicable to everyday life in so many ways, and that you can go at your own pace. Great for visual/spatial learners who need a story and application to get a concept.
