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)

This is an awesome addition to your middle school math program! My son loves it! I have recommended it to many!

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 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.

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)

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)

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 daughter loved this game. She put a lot of effort into it and it really challenged her.

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)
