Next in the long of math products to review is factsfirst, from the publishers of Saxon Math. Factsfirst is an online math program to help students master addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Each child starts by creating a character – similar to creating a Mii, for you Wii owners. Two facts are introduced in each lesson as the student works towards mastering the problems. 5 minutes of arcade time is rewarded after each section is completed.
The Math Fact Matrix makes it very easy to see what your child has been working on, and where they need improvement.
My kids love this program! They actually ask to use it. They are very motivated to do the timed drills in order to play the games, but they enjoy the lessons as much as they do the games. I like that it works for all of our kids. The older ones use it to really nail down their multiplication & division skills. The younger use it to reinforce what they are currently learning.

The Nitty Gritty:
- $49.99 for a 1-year subscription, which provides access for 4 students
Value: This is a great value for our family. My 4 students range from 1st grade to 7th, and they have all enjoyed this. $12.50 per student for a year is a deal for a good program that everyone loves.
