Details

Math Galaxy Word Problems Fun is another interactive learning app in Math Galaxy’s series of educational apps. This time, the developers design an archaeological themed game with math problems to create an app where children get to practice their math problem solving skills while having fun playing against each other in the game.

The gameplay of this app is like a cross between Monopoly and maze searches while the math problems included cover the core of elementary and middle school math: whole numbers, fractions, decimals, multi-step problems, ratios & proportions, percents, negative numbers, time, length, area, volume, weight, angles, and graphs & tables, along with other higher-order skills woven throughout the exercises.

You and your fellow archaeologists have landed on Prospero’s Island in the Mediterranean looking for lost treasure in underground caves and labyrinths. You each start with $25,000. If you collect all the treasures in a cave you get to own it, you can then charge any other player who lands on it a fee of $1000 for each cave that you own. To enter a cave, you must answer a math problem to open the cave door. Once inside, you control a robot to get the treasures while avoiding the different obstacles inside.

The game can play up to 4 Players. Each player will choose his/her avatar and what specific math topic to answer questions from. An onscreen calculator is provided, since the purpose is to understand the structure of word problems and not get mired in calculations.

 

What iHeartThisApp Liked

The developers have created a pretty hefty app in terms of the number of topics and problems that the game contains. It covers a wide range of elementary and middle school math. What’s unique about this game is that the players, while playing against each other, also get to learn independently. The game allows up to four players but each player gets to choose a specific topic and all their questions will come from that specific topic. For example, Player 1 will answer questions about Length, Player 2 about Percents, etc. They can work on their own topics to suit what they are currently learning or practicing in school which means that children of different levels can still play against each other.

When answering a question, the app brings up an onscreen calculator to easily input the answers and it also provides a visual representation of the answer so children get to analyze how to get to that answer if they get the answer wrong. This is also a good app for parents and teachers to play with the children so they can guide them through what they are answering.

Suggested Enhancement

For future versions, it would be great if the visuals of the app would be upgraded to a more modern design so it could catch the attention of kids better. Also, controlling the robot inside the cave is a bit difficult so it would be nice to improve on that.

Overall

Math Galaxy Word Problems Fun is an interactive learning game app that pits elementary and middle school children against each other in a Monopoly and maze search-type of game which involves answering word problems from a slew of math topics. Students of different levels can play against each other while focusing on their specific topics at the same time.
