Nintendo are on a roll in their series of titles to train our brains.

February 8th sees the European release of "Maths Training" for the Nintendo DS device. Its full name is "Professor Kageyama's Maths Training: The Hundred Cell Calculation Method.

The software focuses on basic arithmetic; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills. There are daily test modes and players move up levels after a set of exercises have been completed. There is also a wireless mode that allows 15 players to link together and compete in arithmetic marathons.



Maths Training is retailing for 16.99 on Amazon and the usual game outlets.

More info on the Nintendo site

I wonder when we'll see a version that makes calculus fun?

Looks good although I am waiting to see if it has the appeal to children that Dr Kawashima's does. I wonder if children will suss out that this really is Maths and that it might not engage those that we want engaged because of this. On the other hand it might just do the trick. I'm going to have a right good look at it to see if I can put it into classrooms.
