This title does an excellent job of combining the appeal of playing in outer space with fun math activities. Children join human boy Max Blaster and his alien friend, G.C. in playing five different activities at an intergalactic zoo. By counting, measuring, sorting sets, adding, subtracting, telling time, and counting money, children help to give the zoo animals their much needed exercise. Kids will also explore the concepts of “greater than” and “less than.” This software successfully mixes math drill with higher level thinking skills.
