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)

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.

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 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.

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)

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)

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.

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.

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.
