Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen Great!
My 6 year old son loves numbers & this is perfect for him. The device was easy to hold and is small enough that we brought it on the airplane during vacation. My son was able to play the game independently and enjoyed the green/red lights to indicate correct/incorrect.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cindi Big hit with my 6 year old!
I received this product for free to provide my honest feedback. This toy is a hit with my 6 year old son! My son loves math, so when we received this product, he immediatly wanted to start playing with it. I like that you can add, subtract, multiply, and divide with it, so my son will be able to grow with this toy. He is going into 1st grade, so it is nice that he can practice adding and subtracting, all while having fun with 'an electronic' toy. He even took it with him in the car and played on it the entire 4 hour car ride to go on vacation. The screen it a little hard to read if the light hits it just right, but it is easy to hold and my son will be able to grow with it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mom of 2 Helpful educational math tool
My daughter was thrilled when she got this to use. She is always trying to learn math above her 7-year-old level and this is great for that because it allows you to adjust the difficulty. Love how it has sets for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division and even tougher problems like fractions. She was able to quickly figure out how to use it herself. My one complaint is the screen is a bit difficult to read if you aren't in the right lighting. But otherwise, I'm excited to have her use this as she goes further in school to practice tougher problems. It's also a great size for the car or waiting for an appointment. I received this product free from Educational Insights in exchange for an honest review.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TXMomofTwo Fun, educational math product
My four year old loves math and electronic gadgets and Math Shark was a hit with him! He currently likes doing the easier levels of addition and subtraction and I like that this product will grow with him as his math skills develop further. It is convenient and educational - wonderful for travel or just small outings where waiting is necessary (like going out to eat). My six year old plays with the Math Shark occasionally and although she's less a fan of the product (because it is dedicated only to math) that is also another plus for the parent - you know your child won't be switching over to some mindless ice cream game instead of practicing math if you have the Math Shark vs. a tablet. Also, this product makes it so much more fun to do math drills than having to use flash cards. I would give this product five stars if the display screen was clearer - the numbers are sometimes hard to see/distinguish. Overall, this is a product I would recommend. *I was provided the product in exchange for an honest review*
Rated 5 out of 5 by Opale Great Learning Tool!
My daughter was excited to practice math with this learning tool. The shape is nice, making it easy to hold, and everything seems very sturdy. I like how you can choose the learning level so this device can grow as my kids progress in math. The sound and light-up feature for correct/incorrect answers make this an easy-to-use learning tool.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SueB Great toy with educational perks!
Educational Insights Math Shark has been a big hit in our home! My 7 year-old son has really enjoyed playing with it and finds it easy to understand. Math Shark has several games to choose from including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, fractions, and percents. Each game also has various skill levels. There is even a calculator mode! Math Shark is portable and would be a great toy for car trips. It kept my son entertained for quite some time.

My daughter is in 2nd grade and this product works well for drilling basic math facts. I like that you can select different levels of difficulty and different operations to practice. I also appreciate that this is a product that will grow with my child, and she will be able to use to drill the basics for several years. And of course, these drill can be done on computers or tablets or phones, but those things have all sorts of other distractions on them; if she's working on this, at least I know it's math she's practicing!
Rated 4 out of 5 by cands They liked it at first, but lost interest
The kids were excited to receive this and played with it for awhile and then lost interest. I tried to get them re-interested but no go. I'm hoping now that summer is over I may be able to re-introduce it and have positive results like when it first arrived.
