# Math Manimals - Train math the fun way

- Paid - Paid

## Teacher Overview

A game based number app, similar to flappy bird, that allows children to practice their calculations using the four operations.  Targeted at younger children who can count and are now beginning to understand number operations, by answering questions correctly, they are encouraged to collect stars throughout the game, levelling up and unlocking different characters.  Mathematically, children practice their mental skills and are able to alter the level of difficulty too, selecting from numbers between 10 and 100.

## Teacher Review

A flappy bird style, number based app, that allows children to practice their four operations: addition; subtraction; multiplication and division.

In terms of the mathematics, children are able to select the desired operation and the appropriate level of difficulty.  Although selecting numbers within 10, 20, 50 and 100 is effective for addition and subtraction, it is not appropriate for multiplication and division questions.  Instead, children should be able to select the specific tables, from 1-12 times tables, then perhaps, multiples of 10s and 25s.  Upon first glance, it seemed that the developers were aware of this and had compensated to some extent, as the questions that appeared tended to focus on multiplying or dividing a 2-digit number by 2, 3 or 4 – extremely age appropriate.  However, as the game progressed, questions such as 68/17=4 appeared which become difficult to solve mentally.  Such a question could be easily switched to become 68/4=17 which would be much more appropriate.

Returning to the homepage, the total number of correct answers (stars) is displayed in the top corner. Children can use these to purchase additional characters, with each subsequent character costing more.  This is the motivation children need to continue practicing their mathematics.  Strangely, there are no other “options” within the app and this might be useful, for example to mute background music or change the speed of the game play.

Overall, worthy of a four-star rating.  However, with a few tweaks, this app has the potential to suit a range of different audiences and abilities, and certainly become a five-star app.
