About Math Splat App Review

Splat Math Game is a truly customizable splat math game that engages children through gameplay but allows targeted learning at the same time. 

Math Splat App Review Review

Overall Maths Splat engages children with the game play, but more importantly allows children to customise and select their skills, targeting learning.  Well worthy of a 5* rating.

How can the Math Splat app improve learning?

Upon opening this splat math game, children are first presented with two simple choices: “level mode” or “custom mode”.  “Level mode” initially asks children to enter their name, this allows Maths Splat to retain all their achievements and times. This area is split into four different levels with each level then subdivided into four different skills: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with an additional section which combines all four. 

Level mode

Once a level is selected in Splat math game, children are presented with a 3 by 7 grid of random numbers along with a question at the top, to which the answer is in the grid. A correct selection ‘splats’ the chosen number, while an incorrect selection makes a negative sound and a life is lost. Incorrect answers prevent children from accessing the next question and are logged as an error on the apps scoring system.  This ensures that children understand and achieve the correct answer and by recording the mistakes, children are able to see which skills they need to repeat and continue to practice.

Times are also recorded, allowing children to see their best times so they can use them to improve.  Completing the main four skills unlocks the final section - a combination of all four skills. Once complete this section reveals a certificate, which is cleverly designed so that children able to take a photograph and then print this out. Returning to the main “level mode” children can progress through four different levels, presumably these map to different levels of difficulties; it would be nice for the developer to explain how these skill progress.

Custom mode

The second option in Splat math game is “custom mode”.  Within this area children are able to precisely practice a selected skill at their desired level. This area is truly customisable allowing a child, their parent or teacher to direct the level of learning. There are hundreds of possible combinations from the six main areas: the four operations, “number bonds” and “doubles”. Addition and subtraction permit almost any combination of whole numbers added or subtracted, similarly the multiplication and division section allows practice any number from 1 to 20. “Number bonds” included the basics: 5-10, then 20, 50, 100.  While “doubles” included 1-5 and 1-10. With the range on offer, almost every skill a child will need for their number skills can be covered. Again, times and errors are recorded at the end. From a mathematical perspective, the ability to precisely customise these skills is the apps unique feature: it allows meticulously targeted learning, perfect when children have gaps in their knowledge.

Splat Square - An interactive hundred square for exploring number patterns. The children love the splat sound!

What could the Math Splat app improve on?

Finally, there are limited additional buttons within the homepage: music; rate; and further apps.  It should be noted, that as an adult using the Splat maths system, the transition between pages felt time consuming and the developer might consider how to speed up these, however, as a young child using the system they might not notice this. Additionally, the developer might also consider further features to prolong engagement, for example, a multi-player approach using different colours for each child.
