Math Galaxy (A Homeschool Crew Review)

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
For the last few weeks we have been supplementing our math curriculum with fun riddles from a collection of ebook workbooks from Math Galaxy.

We were given four bundles of ebook workbooks to use in our Homeschool.  The bundles included 30 different workbooks  all together.
Whole Numbers (11 Workbooks) - 1 and 2 Digit Multiplication Riddles; 1-3 Digit Addition and Subtraction Riddles; 3 and 4 Digit Multiplication Riddles; Expanded Notation, Order of Operations and Pattern Riddles; Multi-Digit Addition and Subtraction Riddles; Time and Money Riddles; Whole Number Division Riddles; Whole Number World Problem Riddles; Spelling Jumbles Grade 3-5; Rounding & Estimating Whole Number Riddles

Fractions (8 Workbooks) - Adding & Subtracting Fractions Riddles; Equivalent Fraction Riddles; Fraction World Problem Riddles; Identifying Fractions Riddles; Length & Area Riddles; Multiply & Divide Fractions; Reducing & Improper Fractions; Volume, Capacity, Weight & Angles Riddles

PreAlgebra (7 workbooks) - Decimal Operations Riddles; Decimal World Problem Riddles; Length & Area Riddles; Percents Riddles; Ratios & Proportions Riddles; Understanding Decimals Riddles; Volume, Capacity, Weight & Angles

Algebra ( 5 workbooks) - Algebra-Properties & Operations Riddles; Algebra-Solving Equations Riddles; Algebra- Word Problem Riddles; Algebra- Scientific & Metric Notation & Operations Riddles; Algebra - Linear Equations Riddles

 Each workbook follows a basic format - students are given a riddle to which they must solve questions in order to figure out the answer.   Each answer corresponds with a letter that they use to fill in to answer the riddle.  Some workbooks offer both a riddle page as well as just a practice worksheet without the riddle for students to work.   They also range in page size - the workbook for Multiplication is 43 pages in length while one of the Algebra ebooks is 143pages.

For this review we focused on using the 1 and 2 Digit Multiplication Riddles ebook as this is what the kids needed the most practice with as of lately.  This gave us 20 worksheets for the kids to use for this section.  Each day, I would print out one worksheet for the kids to work on their on.  Each workbook contains both the student worksheet as well as a corresponding answer worksheet that has the solution to the riddle.

The riddles proved to be a great incentive for the kids. This particular riddle workbook featured child appropriate riddles.  These riddles have been super cute and it has become a new thing in our house for the kids to get to share their riddles with their grandparents when they call throughout the week.  Their PawPaw usually calls at least three times a week and they are always eager to share the day's joke with him when he calls.

In addition to the printable ebook, there is also a file for Google Slides. These files can be uploaded to your Google Drive account and accessed on the computer to provide paperless practice for many of the same skills found in the ebooks. While we personally did not use this in our homeschool, I did look at how this option works and I see where this could be extremely useful for a larger classroom setting with many students and where situations where distance learning is needed (much likewhat the country is finding itself at currently).
