- a Live Mathletics section where you race with math problems against other kids around the world;

Your situation: Daughter attends main stream school. Just finished year 1. (Age 6)
Daughter loves mathletics and also spelladrome. She likes to also do the easy and harder tasks. Spellodrome is set at her level and she enjoys trying to spell new words which are not on her school spelling list. I expect her to do 1 maths challenge and 1 spellodrome challenge a day and to do 1 live mathletics which helps with number bonds. Often she does more and is pleased with herself for learning new concepts. Over the holidays moved on to year 2 which she is finding more challenging but picking up very quickly. She has managed to learn to tell the time properly (including minutes) within a week and her comment was "Oh, that's what the minute lines mean." (been telling her for months). She does the work on her own and saves each piece we then go through it and discuss the concepts to make sure she understands it, the next time she repeats the ones she has not got 100% on. If she is still struggling on that area I sit down and go through it with her while doing the program.
Highly recomend Mathletics and spellodrome.
Any other helpful hints: Click on all areas to find out what can be acheived it was 3 months before we realised there was the easier and harder sections. Easier sections are from a level below and harder sections a level above. When moving up a level some areas are repeated but these are highlighted as being completed so you know where the child is.
