Product Description:

CalcuPak 1 contains CalcuLadders 1-3 (basic and advanced addition and subtraction, telling time, basic and advanced multiplication, and basic division) and ReadyWriter (basic letter stroke practice). The software comes on CD and runs on Windows or Mac. Information is included with the CD on obtaining an activation key for setup. After installation, open up the application and you'll see all of the volumes listed. You can easily print off as many of each drill as you need from this screen, as well as keys and achievement records. Another great feature of the CalcuPack is the CalcuClock™ which can time up to five different students in one sitting. You can shut down the timer if they finish before their time runs out, and when you enter their scores, it will calculate accuracy and performance scores.


Publisher Description:

The CalcuPak software is compatible with Windows 10, 8.1 or 8, Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate, Professional, or Home Premium, as well as on a Macintosh running OSX, version 10.11 or higher. However, the CalcuPak software is not compatible with Mac OS Big Sur.

This CalcuPak has a value of $55.80, so take advantage of our fantastic price!


Category Description for CalcuPaks / Calculadders:

These are great - painless, quick, easy to take and good for you - no wonder they're called "Learning Vitamins." These are designed to get the brain working quickly and automatically - a must before going into higher-level math! We have seen marked improvement in our children's computational speed and skill after using these. Advantages over other drill sheets we've seen (and used) are the sheer variety in the sheets and the incremental level of difficulty from one sheet to the next. Cute graphics "grow" up the margins of the page as students progress, adding to the visual appeal, and an appropriate scripture verse is a definite plus (if you're drilling several students, the ones who finish ahead can meditate on something worthwhile!).

Originally printed as a workbook with 12 copies of 16 individual master worksheets, students completed one page each day until they reached the target speed. Then, they moved on to the next worksheet and repeated the process. The target speed might be reached after completing two or three worksheets or it might take a student the entire 12 to reach the speed goal. Although the print versions of the Calculadders have gone out of print, the publisher has transitioned their successful drill program to either a computer-based option (CalcuPaks) or the Super-Slate (an interesting and somewhat uniquely designed re-mark system) that uses a single master copy of each drill sheet.

Calculadders have six levels which take the student through basic math - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, telling time, fractions, percents, and decimals. These roughly correspond to elementary grade levels but can be used whenever needed. ReadyWriter provides practice in basic letter strokes and would be used prior to a formal handwriting program. AlphaBetter helps students speed up their alphabitizing skills.

I used this with my own children almost 20 years ago, and am now purchasing for my grandson who struggles keeping up in his math class at school. This program gives kids an instant boost because they ALWAYS get faster with each successive try. Math goes from something dreaded to something conquered in just a couple of weeks.

Calculadders for reinforcing all the math processes they might otherwise say they forgot.
Hannah P on Aug 25, 2018
My son has some learning struggles. We tried a few sheets of this with someone else, and found it to work well for him. The whole way of doing the practice reinforces learning in his regular math, gives extra review and practice, moves one toward accuracy and speed, and lets me know that he completely understands. One reaches new levels fairly quickly. It is encouraging for him, and fun, as it is some positive reinforcement in a subject of difficulty for him.

I have found that Calculadder is a great way to improve elementary arithmetic skills.

We have used this resource for years and really appreciate them. They are a wonderful challenge for the boys. We started with their print material, switched to the cd masterpak version, and now are more than happy to spend money on this next option.

I used this program for homeschooling some of my children and for supplemental materials for my other children whom I did not homeschool. For either purpose, it's a great economical way to help children with math especially for those families who are sadly stuck with the convoluted and confusing Common Core!

I wanted extra math facts practice to accompany Math U See

This was recommended to me by a homeschooling mom of 6 grown children.

I've been working with flashcards with my 1st grader, but I loved the idea of a step-by-step "timed drill"-type program that objectively helps me know how he is doing on his facts.

Goes up to simple division. Easy to maneuver
Easy to navigate. You install and email the maker they email you back with a code to access the program on the disk. They were fast in getting back to me like 2 days or less. You print out the worksheet and print the answer sheet to correct . The bottom of the worksheet has a new bible verse.

Very Helpful!
The drills are great for improving my children's accuracy and speed on basic calculations, and they get excited about beating the clock on the computer timer.
