Got a phone, computer, or tablet? You can practice doing math in your head!
As a parent of young children, I observed their tablet time throughout the week. I mean, which kid doesn’t love their tablets? Lately, I’ve introduced them to the idea that tablets are more than just devices to watch baseball highlights, cat videos, and games. It was also a key to unlock the world’s knowledge all in the palm of their hands. So since I have a background in writing code, I made a procedurally generated math quiz… basically, online math flashcards that get harder and harder as the player progresses and level up.
I had my children test it out as I was building it and quickly realized addiction slowly happening as they were playing. I guess that’s a good thing right? I mean, it’s not much different than quickly adding two cards when you’re playing blackjack.
So I invite you to give it a try and challenge your young ones to do math in their heads. You’re able to pick the type of math problems you want in the game. Oh yeah, there’s no “final level”, since the math problems are automatically generated. Let me know which level you end up at and how I can make it better.
