I am happy to present today’s review, Mad Dog Math, a math drill software program that encourages children with incentives to improve their math facts skills. Can be used either at home or in a classroom to achieve math mastery in basic operations. Using short drill lessons enables the child to enjoy the lesson and become more confident as they progress.
I do want to point out this is only the software we reviewed but the Mad Dog Math program is much more than just the software. The video explains how the program is set up for schools but I can see this translating into homeschools very easily.
There are four levels of ability to drill math facts
- Level 1 +/- focusing on 0-18 families
- Level 2 +/- more focus on 10 – 18 families
- Level 3 Multiplication and Division
- Challenge Level mixed operations drills
Also available are flashcards, certificates, paper and pencil forms, instructional materials.

My boys are not close enough in age to appreciate the competitiveness with each other but they did enjoy the self competition trying to beat their own times and such. I loved that this program can be tailored for multiple ages and they can progress at their own speed. The program tells the student what to work on as they progress and pass each set of problems.
I can’t wait to start my daughter with this program. She is only 2 but I love how I can do math drilling straight from the beginning with her. My boys never got the foundation in math drilling they needed until we began homeschooling 2 years ago and now it is a bit of a struggle. After drilling multiplication this year with my oldest DS15 he has vastly improved his speed and accuracy.
