My Experience: My six-year-old son, Braxton has a Nintendo 3DS, and he has been playing Lola’s Math Train every chance he gets for the past three days. It is fascinating to see him getting so into it. Braxton is learning number identification, addition and subtraction, as well as sequencing numbers in a row, equations, patterns and shape recognition.
The players are put in the conductor's seat of a train headed to a big bash, and all of Lola's animal friends are invited. During each leg on the six-step journey, 11 math problems must be solved before arriving at a station where a single animal can be loaded into one of the available carts.
After every three math problems, there's a fun activity, such as a puzzles to solve or little games such as arranging separated pieces that make up a whole number, sets of shapes where one or more instances in the pattern are missing and must be filled in, and one where numbered balloons must be dragged over to create an acceptable equation.
I am actually amazed at how much my little boy is learning from playing Lola's Math Train. (He's actually smarter than I thought at math.) I wish I would have had a game like this for when I was a little kid. I was always so bad at math, and I still am!)
All in all, I am very pleased with Lola’s Math Train. My son loves it. As a mother, I love watching him play it, and to see how much he is learning from it.
