About Marble Math

Marble Math is a fun app in which you solve a variety of math problems by collecting numbers as you roll or drag your marble through a series of fun mazes for ages 5-8. Marble Math is super fun and easy for kids to use.

Teacher Review

Using Marble Math app, kids in kindergarten through 3rd grade can practice telling time, doing addition and subtraction, working with fractions, and naming shapes while maneuvering a marble through a maze. As the virtual version of the heavy, wooden game kids’ parents used to play, this activity ups the ante by having children answer questions as they attempt to manipulate the marble. And this game doesn’t end when the marble flies out of the maze and rolls under some furniture. (Or gets eaten by the dog).

Repetition and practice are the keys to mastering new math skills, but for kids, solving problem after problem on a worksheet page can get pretty boring after a while. Marble Math gives kids who enjoy puzzle games an engaging and entertaining way to get the practice and repetition that they need to hone and sharpen their math skills.

It includes features that parents and teachers will love, like the ability to replay games so students build confidence as they work up to the correct answer. This learning app is so much like a game that kids will forget they are doing math! There are obstacles and rewards as they move their marble through the maze, urging users on. This app is a definite yes for older elementary students!

While kids move their marble through the various mazes of the game, they’ll collect answers and avoid obstacles that could halt their progress. They may forget that they’re practicing fractions and decimals as they focus on guiding their marble, but they’ll still gain a valuable edge in their math skills. The app is customizable, so you can set it to target specific skills that your kids are working on in class or struggling with. You’ll also be able to see what kinds of questions your child answers easily and what they have more difficulty with, allowing you even more ability to focus on your individual child’s specific math needs.
