TOS Review: CapJaxMathFax







What is CapJaxMathFax you say?? It is a program designed to help your child learn their facts with short little drills. It was developed by Jack Fretwell. He started with a Masters in Educational Technology and spent thirty years in education and computers.

What can you learn with CapJaxMathFax? They focus on Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. Cause lets face it, without those you really can’t get much further in Math. :-)

How it works:

You install the program, then sign in. Then you choose what you want the child to start with. After that you can choose what level you want them to begin with. Such as single level or double digits. Let them begin!! You can see more of an overview here.



I started Monkey Man at the beginning cause in my opinion you can always use practice. So he whizzed right through Addition and Subtraction of course. Then he started on Multiplication, which is where he needed the help. He can’t seem to remember the table very well. It is really the only area that he struggles with really badly in math. However, when you try to get him to study them normally he would fit me tooth and nail.

After being able to use the computer.. and practice on CapJaxMathFax he has had a lot more fun with it. He still has trouble, and is slowly progressing but I have seen a difference.

Monkey Man’s thoughts…. He says the best part for him is that he likes that it doesn’t take forever. He likes that he can play for a few minutes at a time.

My thoughts… It’s a great concept. They get to practice without it being to much like work. They think it is fun. I also like that I don’t have to come up with the facts. The program does it for you. So, he can get on while I’m working the with the girls, and practice. Which causes less chaos in my day.

You can purchase CapJaxMathFax for $29.95.  For this price, I think it is worth it. Especially if you have more than one child. This would be useful for any family.
