Nintendo DS Learn Math From DreamCatcher Reviewer & Giveaway

We received Nintendo DS Learn Math from DreamCatcher for reviewing. DreamCatcher is a Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based publisher of video games founded in 1996 by Richard Wah Kan. They have  operated their own Online Store since 2002.
Nintendo DS Learn Math for Grades 1-4 is an educational game which progress through 10 different topics allowing you to learn, practice, and repeat lessons based on a syllabus for grades 1-4. With a range of diversified exercises, Learn Math for Grades 1-4 ensures that you come across a particular exercise just once. This educational game features tricky quizzes at the end of each exercise for proper recalling of the new topics learnt. Now pick up your Nintendo DS and make learning Math much more fun by setting new highest game scores.
At the beginning, players are welcomed to the castle and asked to enter their name and grade level. This information is stored, so it's easy for multiple players to set up characters on the same DS unit, making it a great choice for families on the go or students who want to compare results with their friends on the bus. This enables Learn Math to tailor its challenges to an appropriate difficulty. As the player improves, the challenge is slowly increased. Every now and again players are asked to take a short quiz to determine how well they have understood concepts from the previous lessons.
Once they're ready to play, kids will start working through lessons as little green vampires, and they'll have the opportunity to progress through 10 different topics, learning new concepts, practicing them, and repeating lessons to ensure that they stick. They'll also be tasked with mastering brief quizzes that provide an incentive for practicing skills until they are perfect.
Whether it's arranging geometric blocks into Tangram animals, figuring out how far the monsters drove on their European road trip, solving mazes, or doing basic addition and subtraction to figure out the cost of items in a store, this game ties learning abstract concepts to concrete examples for better overall understand--and extra fun.
More advanced students will even get a chance to earn stars and other rewards by racking up right answers to division and multiplication problems, just like they do in real classrooms.
3 of my grandkids play and learn with this game. The older one (3rd grade) loves math so he whizzed through the majority of this game. It did help him with estimating distances though. The other 2 (both 2nd graders) have learned quite a bit while playing it and are having fun.
When you answer a question wrong the mascot shakes his head.
I love that it offers a variety of math like - arithmetic, geometry, number puzzles, telling time, estimating distances and multiplication facts. 
One (1) of my readers will win a Nintendo DS Learn Math thanks to DreamCatcher!
