The Numberwise Course starts at rock bottom and builds very slowly, allowing even the weakest student to cope.

As with all computer games, the student's natural drive to break one's record leads to the student doing thousands of questions without feeling that he is doing maths! Compared with old fashioned rote learning, children find Numberwise fun.

Instead of a student slipping down into the maths graveyard, Numberwise
