CapJaxMathFax is a fun computer program designed to give students practice and drill on math facts.  Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are included in the facts practice.  The program was designed by Jack Fretwell of Starboard Training Systems.  “Mr. Fretwell earned a Masters degree in Educational Technology and has spent over thirty years in education and computers.

With Mr. Fretwell heading up CapJaxMathFax™ for the last 10 years, we have seen many children develop stronger math skills and confidence.

Starboard Training Systems’ goal is to help organizations that teach, train and mentor our children so that not one is without basic math abilities.

If you teach math your students will benefit from CapJaxMathFax™. “

Installation of CapJaxMathFax is simple, by either download or c.d..  The program is customizable by the type of facts included in each practice session and the difficulty of the facts.  Teachers / parents can even opt to set a ‘super seconds’ target (usually 3 seconds) to challenge students to recall facts quickly.  With CapJaxMathFax, the student becomes the calculator.  They learn to have the immediate recall of basic math facts that is lacking through most traditional math curricula.

Testimonial for CapJaxMathFax

The beauty of CapJaxMathFax is that teachers / parents no longer have to make up facts quizzes and drills.  These are automatically generated by the program and automatically scored.  Students love the immediate feedback. Students progress through different levels as their skills increase.  As they gothrough the different levels, they are able to earn merit badges It is recommended to begin students at lower levels and allow them to progress through the entire program.  This builds student confidence and gives reinforcement for skills he /she already has.

CapJaxMathFax is available on the website beginning at $29.95 for the downloadable product.  A cd version is also available, with a small additional charge.  Our crewmembers have been able to enjoy using this program for a  couple of months now.  To read what they have to say about it, click on the linky below.

  1. […] I think this is a great program if your wanting to have your child be drilled, in a fun, non-frilly way and improve his or her time of bringing those facts to mind on a second recall.  While my daughter did enjoy it I think it will appeal to boys as there isn’t your typical girly stuff around but it’s definitely usable for both boys and girls and a variety of ages and grades depending on the needs of your child.  If you’d like to see what other homeschooling parents had to say then check out the TOS Homeschool Crew Review blog.
