EdAlive Maths Invaders Online & Typing Tournament Online

I am part of the Homeschool Review Crew. All opinions are my own.

Do you remember taking computer classes in school? I remember we started having computer classes when we were in 4th grade. Back then, computers were just Windows 98! But apparently computers were already so important that our school thought we needed to learn them from an early age. So we started with fun video games to help us learn. I think using games can help kids a lot more than just focusing on the mechanics of computers. So that's why I was so happy to review EdAlive's Maths Invaders Online. We also got to check out Typing Tournament Online too!

Math was never my strong subject in school and it isn't for Mary either so extra practice is always helpful to us. With Maths Invaders Online, your kids get to play an online game that helps them learn math problems and with practice, helps them get to the answers quicker.

Since Mary and I are both slower with math, I decided to try out level 2 to see what the questions would be. The game starts off with you as the spaceship on the bottom. The questions are moving right and left and you have to move your ship and type the correct answer to blast them. Once they are blasted, they disappear and you receive points. Each part of the game has different levels too so if you pass the level, you will move onto another stage.

What is nice is that you don't have to start off with level 1 or 2 like we tried initially. You can start off where you think your child needs to start, even if it's level 10. When you first start the game, you can pick the level based on sample questions too so if your child hasn't learned something yet, you can go to a lower level.

What makes the game challenging is that the questions are moving so you have to try and think fast. This is like a math drill like what we had in school. On paper, we would have to do as many questions as we could in a certain amount of time and with practice, we got faster. This is a lot like that. It might look intimidating at first, but you'll get the hang of it since it's a game.

Maths Invaders Online is recommended for ages 5-15 and covers a lot of math concepts;. I would recommend playing around 3-4 times a week for extra practice after a math lesson.

The other program we were able to check out was Typing Tournament OnlineTyping Tournament Online is set up like a medieval game and you're a knight. I love the fact that it's not just typing drills, but also lessons too.

As you can see from the picture, in order to even get to the drills, you have to go through the lesson first. The first lesson teaches you were to place your fingers on the keyboard and then you get some practice.

When you first start, you will start with a speed test to see just how fast you already type as well. You can choose if you want it to go for 1 minute or 3 minutes. I chose 3 minutes and then you begin typing. If you make a mistake, you can go back to fix it too which is nice. Some other typing tests don't let you go back which can be unnerving.

Throughout the program, you'll have a storyline too which is really fun for kids. In parts, there are activities like defending the castle from invading words too. They don't feel like they're learning, they feel like they're playing! The game was actually so cute I played for a bit!

With Typing Tournament Online, I recommend using this also 3-4 times a week to help master typing skills. Most likely, the kids will be asking for more days though because it's so fun!

Overall both of these games are amazing, well made and extremely fun to play! The storylines are cute and kids will be having so much fun, they won't even know they're learning! If you want to check out the other crew reviews for these programs, click the banner below!
