Rating: (1-5)    1=poor   5=excellent

Strong Points: There was animation and sound, as well as changing screens.  The content was good as far as math problems and the level of math computation seemed age appropriate.
Weak Points: The amount of time doing math is only about 50% of the time spent playing the game and it was unclear how to play the game to be successful almost every time.
