Product review of Subtraction Secrets
Posted 8/20/2013 by Beth Weaver

This was a gift for our grandson, who is entering first grade. He enjoyed following the clues as a motivation to solving a puzzle. We/he also liked the directions (N/E/S/W). Clues were easy to follow.

My 7 year old niece enjoys the challenge of this game - and she's learning math skills while she plays.

Good opportunity to practice math skills
Posted 12/3/2012 by Shana Ravnsborg

Great worksheet to help my son (1st grade) practice his math skills in a way that he enjoys. Also good at helping with fine motor skills as he draws out the lines. I worry that after a while though, he'll bore - so would like to have seen different kinds of worksheets (or more advanced skills) as well.

Information about Subtraction Secrets
Posted 11/28/2012 by B. Martin

We ordered this for our 7 1/2 yr old granddaughter who loves mysteries and figuring games out. Upon receiving it we read the instructions and examples on the covers and couldn't imagine it holding anyone's attention for very long. Every mystery puzzle was in the same boring format; answer a long list of subtraction problems and then draw a line that many spaces North, South, East, or West to solve the mystery of getting from one point on a puzzle to another. Not what we'd call FUN! It was returned and we're awaiting credit.

It's easy to head in a new direction if you took a wrong turn in ordering the subtraction puzzles. Full satisfaction is right this way - visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for details.)

Secret Math Treasure
Posted 10/15/2012 by Audrey Echelberry

My daughter received Subtraction Secrets and has been using it non-stop! She is also learning how to use a compass rose for directions, as each page has a new problem to solve with simple North, South, East, West directions to help solve each problem!
