Students can test their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills with Math Compass. You can set levels of difficulty and the particular operation (or random operations) to practice. In practice mode, you solve equations and are rewarded with a cute picture when you get them right. The correct answer appears when you get them wrong. Game mode consists of three single-player and one dual-player drills. The two-player Head to Head option lets you set an ending score, while Time Trial ends after the interval you've chosen expires. Other games just keep going. Tutorials offer great tips on quickly solving the different types of problems. The session report details each question, your answer, and the correct answer for practice mode.

Unfortunately, we ran across a few difficulties. We had to install Visual Basic to get Math Compass to work, and we had to uninstall the program using its uninstaller rather than our PC's Control Panel. The Web link in the right-hand window of the practice panel led to a "coming soon" page littered with typos. Equations repeated more often than we'd like. We wish each game had an end point and displayed correct answers when you answered wrong. Still, the varying levels make Math Compass a decent pick for elementary through middle-school students.
