We loved Ko's Journey. Getting my daughter to do math homework is often an uphill battle, but this program had her spending hours on the computer trying to figure out the solutions so she could advance to the next part of the story... and in the process figuring out math concepts which are far above her grade level. I wish there were other products like this!

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)

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)

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)

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!

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)

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.

I have been impressed with Ko's Journey. Although my son was stumped a couple of times, he kept at it until he found the answer. And that is saying a lot when it comes to math! He has finished the journey, but I am sure he will take it again. I am pleased with this product and highly recommend it! Thank you, We would not have taken this "journey" without the Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

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.
