The Distance Game is wonderful. I'm currently using it with a class of gifted and talented 6th grade math students. They love it and so do I! It's fun and it's educational...a combination that can't be beat!

My students are plotting points and learning strategy. I didn't want to leave the computer lab and neither did my class. For a math learning game to hook 11 and 12 year old students as well as their teachers, it has to be pretty impressive. My 12 year old grandson is also learning the game. He said, "It's fun! Can we play it at home? How do we get a copy?!"

I've taught math to students in grades 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, and also served as a middle school math chairperson for many years. Having taught math for 40 years, I can tell you that quality math software for ages 10 and up is very hard to find. This game is definitely 5 stars!
