Math Fact Challenger was created by parents of elementary school kids who were looking to build confidence and independence in kids as they learn their math facts. We have observed that kids will find greater satisfaction and will practice much longer when they are in control of their own practice. This builds confidence and growth in math learning. This game can be played daily, similar to flash card practice, but can give the parents a chance to let the kids practice and learn on their own. Parents, teachers and students will all appreciate the value of this method.
Our game is designed with simplicity in mind while helping the students to learn and progress. It is done in a way where the players can practice independently while having the ability to report the important time tracking for the practice. The simple interface enables the student to easily select what they need to work on and to play. There are no complicated set up processes. The interface will work in portrait mode and landscape. In landscape mode, the game will support both left handed and right handed players. We believe that every detail such as this will build the student’s confidence. This tells the kids that they are considered important whether they are left handed or right handed.
This tool encourages personal effort in finding correct answers rather than negative reinforcement. Students will never receive a “Wrong!” statement, nor will the student simply be given the answer. This game is about practicing and learning for growth and mastery. The player can continue to try for correct answers or they may skip when stumped. This supports a growth mindset learning environment. To continue growth, the game is able to manage the level of problems for the player if desired. The game will increase or decrease difficulty by the amount of time required to answer each problem. There is also the option to pick exactly which number range and operation.
Parents are able to clearly see how their kids are doing by taking a quick look at the summary report after each session. There is reporting after each round so that the players can show that they did their practice and can be sure to stick to their school’s daily requirements. This report will show the number of answers that were correct or skipped per level per operation. This will help to track where the student is, but is not a distraction while the student is practicing. This report can be saved.
The game has a timer that allows parents or teachers to know that the students are putting in their time. The timer is there to track the effort spent on the practice. The idea is that the students will improve just by practicing and playing within the timeframe.
The game will allow players to choose any combination of level and operation and will produce questions within those selections. The game also has a level up mode that will automatically level the game based on the frequency of correct or skipped answers. The dynamic leveling also works within any combination of operations that is selected.
