Saturday, May 19, 2012


Chad is at the point in school when we are drilling, drilling, and drilling math facts.  He is fairly quick with addition and subtraction, and is just learning multiplication and division.  You should hear the groans when I pull out the old flash cards! He would much rather be doing something on the computer than doing flash cards, so I was interested in trying CapJaxMathFax

Jack Fretwell is the creator of this program, and has over 30 years experience in education and computers. CapJaxMathFax is a drill and practice program that you can download to your computer, starting at $29.95.  It is meant to be used as a supplement to any math program you are currently using.

As the teacher, you would set the parameters for your student's drill and they can practice anytime. You can choose from addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, or a combination of the four.  The program randomly generates problems without repetition, and provides immediate feedback. The student gets extra reinforcement for fast, correct answers, and can even earn merit badges.

Teachers receive detailed reports, and with the rating system students can set personal goals and keep track of scores. Click CapJaxMathFax at a glance to learn more about the program.

Personally, I found CapJaxMathFax to be a fine, solid drill program for the computer.  Chad was a little overwhelmed at first with how busy the screen was, which he got used to. He has a different program for drilling on the computer that is still his favorite, but this would be a fine supplement for any student.
