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 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 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)

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)

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.

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 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 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.

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)

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.
