MathsFun: Game Description

MathsFun is an interactive game that makes it REAL fun for kids to learn basic Maths skills. 

MathsFun audience is kids 4 - 7 years old, who start learning Math at school. At this stage, they have to remember all the numbers and learn how to solve basic Maths problems, such as addition and subtraction of numbers from 1 to 20.


The way Maths is taught now is not fun. Kids have to use worksheets to learn it, they get bored and often start hating the Math itself. At this age - the most important for children it to love the Maths. If this happens - their interest in science will thrive in later classes. The game is designed to help children fall in love with Maths once and for all. 

How It Works: 
The game can easily be built using MaKey MaKey. Stars with numbers are used as inputs kids can stand upon or place their hands on. Whenever a child knows the right answer - they simply jump or place their hand on the numbers they think should solve the problem. The game draws its' inspiration from Twister and Guess Who traditional board games.

Game Description:
Maths problems are given out in sets of 10. Once 10 problems are solved - the algorithm adjusts its difficulty level to make it more complicated or easy, depending on how kids scored. Simple problems, such as subtraction and addition of numbers from 1 to 20 are used to challenge kids. 

MathsFun - because Math is fun!
