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.

We love Ko's Journey. It's gaming type way of covering middle school math standards is such a gift to my son. He took the placement test and began the journey. No stress, only fun. His learning in Ko's Journey is demonstrated in his school math work which is coming much more easily and quickly now.

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)

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)

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!

Our family takes the summer off from school and it takes a little time to get going as we begin the school year. Ko's journey was a great review for my middle school kids to ease them back into the school year! It was exciting to see them utilize math to solve Ko's dilemnas. It really gave us a great start!

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)

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 kids are having a lot of fun with Ko's Journey. They're using math to solve real world problems. I have recommended this to everyone we know.

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.
