The MathBlaster website is awash with eye candy. Gorgeously detailed graphics in full vibrant colors invite the player in and let them feel as if they were actually moving through a high tech space station armed with a blaster shooting targets along the way. What is really going on of course is the reinforcement of math skills. Answer correctly and advance to the next level. There is no underestimating the sense of pride and achievement that this brings. Parents felt that their children were using fine motor skills and strengthening their eye-hand coordination while simultaneously enhancing their analytic abilities and strategic thinking. Kids returned again and again, eager to conquer new levels and blast a few numbers along the way.
