Mystery Math Town combines learning math skills with the fun of solving perplexing mysteries. Kids must solve equations and math problems to help a friendly ghost search Math Town for fireflies. Players unlock doors and secret passages that lead to mysterious rooms, all the while having their skills tested in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and equations.

Teacher Review

Mystery Math Town sends children on a mission. They must find and release fireflies trapped in jars. These jars are hidden in homes throughout Math Town, a spooky (but not too spooky) town. Children must visit each house in Math Town, solve math problems and release the fireflies. A catchy little aria and beautiful, gothic-inspired illustrations lend a tantalizing air of mystery to the game. The town is abandoned, but never fear, the dour portraits dispersed throughout the town like to talk, and a little ghost is your child’s constant companion.
 
This game presents math as a mystery to be solved and enjoyed. Children get plenty of math practice and have fun along the way.
