"Fantasic for practicing basic facts for maths."
5 stars"

This is a fantastic game for helping children to practice their maths basic facts. It starts with very basic facts (ie: adding to 10) and gets more complicated as the player passes each level. The comments by the ‘Professor’ are amusing, and encourage the player to complete a short test every day, making comments about the success or missed tests. We loved the fact that it knows what time of day it is and makes appropriate comments, and also knows if you've missed a test and also comments, focusing on encouraging a daily practice and testing. This is exactly what children need – daily practice to get better and memorise basic facts. Schools will love you if you buy this for your child!!

"Great Homework Practice"
5 stars"

As a Mum with 3 school aged Children I think this game is fantastic, It is more of a quick maths review game (but still fun) that you play for only about 10min a day (we use it for home work before other games are allowed to be played), you start at level one and as you get better the levels will get harder, my youngest is 6 and plays it with ease and I enjoy playing it too especially against my secondary school aged daughter as we have a bit of a competition to bet each other..lol Yes that's right with one cartridge if you have more than one ds you can link and compete in different tests… Up to 8 people I think you can link at one time, so group can study together… Its not a game you can play hours on end unless you are obsessed with math, but like I said a quick 5–10 test a day is all it takes to refresh those skills and makes a happier mummy:) There are alot of brain training games but I like this one better for all ages as some of the other ones can be to difficult for 5–6 year olds unless you specifically buy the ones for there age but then to easy for the older kids if you get the gist… I am not disappointed with this game as its just what I wanted to help with homework.


The foundation of Dr Kageyama’s Maths Training is 100 square calculations a method conceived by Kageyama Hidea, a Japanese elementary school principal. The DS is held side ways like a book and all answers are written using the stylus.

The key principal of the software is repetition which according to Kageyama stimulates the brain. The main exercise 100 cells maths, consists of 100 hundred simple maths problems combined into a 10 by 10 grid using the numbers at the top and side of the grid. There are however many other exercises, ranging from simple one digit math problems to slightly more complex three digit challenges.

  • The selection of three exercises changes every time the user advances to the next level 9which happens every five days).
  • Depending on speed and accuracy a player will be rewarded with a bronze, silver or gold medal and a listing in the top three best times for that particular exercise.
  • The software keeps track on the days in which the users trained by rewarding them with ‘tick’ mark in the built-in calendar.
