Challenging App by M.L.I.S - Version 1.4 - Apr 14, 2013

"This is a fantastic app for 4th grade students and up. It reviews the procedures for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions in the instructions and gives the users challenges. The best part is probably the ability for users to challenge their friends and connect using different devices close by!"

  • Great game

    by Jugheadz

    Veru unusal game. Its really 21 century, can connect to 5 devices and play. You must try

  • Nice

    by Yinismss

    Unique concept. Nice design. It's a great app for kids to learn and play at the same time.

  • Definitely challenging

    by !Teacher

    Just because it's a "game" doesn't mean it would be motivating to your average kid. This is not for learning about fractions, it's more for challenging someone with a lot of background knowledge. I can't use it for my average elementary kids, might work for a gifted middle school student.

  • Awesome

    by bleeding star

    I find it an awesome game to get my lazy boy focus on maths, especially the fraction section. The game itself is already awesome while the app carrying it is even more awesome with fun dices and cute animating stuff. In fact, my boy, who hates maths, now seems to get better. Thanks for making it.

  • excellent game

    by *xuka baby*

    this is an excellent game for young students. It helps to develop math & logic capability to some extent. The game is touch and challenging even to a teacher. At first, ones may think it's quite easy to play as all the pieces are there and they just have to put them to the right place, but they would end up hours with countless number of trial n error attempts. Since there is no certain formula to solve, therefore a proper way to approach the problems is very important. The more my students play it, the more likely they will develop themselves a good strategy to approach and solve it. This kind of game has been proven helpful for maths skill development.

  • old game but creative play

    by 4wordsloveletter

    I passed this game to my big boy and he has been enjoying it so far. The game maker knows how to make boring math problems into a highly interactive game with stunning sound & graphic. A brilliant educator to whom I would tip my hat. This game should be well spread across the schools.

  • My brain likes it

    by joh╬▒n

    It's a bit hard to gather up to 5 grown up brains at the same time to play something together, it's even harder for those brains to solve a single problem in this fraction game. But when we were on, it's a great and engaging experience. B/c there is no fixed way to find the right combination of the dices your brain has to work constantly until you hit the eureka moment, which is a good exercise for the brain.

  • excellent

    by lovely kayla

    Another cool math game from Justin. I told my kids to try this game and they are now playing it & challenging each other all the time. Sometime even an adult like me finds it very headache to find the solution to help the kids. But the point is to get fun while playing educational stuff, so I see that this app does an excellent job. We all love to play it.

  • Great app!

    by Sneezor

    Very cool, please add in iPhone 5 support.

  • Impressive!

    by SD_SLP

    This app was extremely enjoyable for me because I enjoy math. I love the problem solving and critical thinking skills that were addressed by having the user figure out the equation while having the answer. I love the Bluetooth capabilities. That was interesting to say the least! I think is is appropriate for middle school age kiddos who need a challenge. If the user struggles with math, this could cause frustration.

  • Nice Math App!

    by Frances Amato

    I love that this app can be played between two players. By allowing students to connect they can group and play together. Another thing that I like about the app is that you can send progress reports. Also, using it with a variety of students you are able to be used with multiple players in order to track progress with different classes throughout the day. I see over eighty students and this app would be helpful for an educator a similar position. I like the white board feature as well. It is wonderful that students get the chance to work out the problems as they would on scrap paper. Overall, the app does encourage students to use higher-order thinking. I also like that when shaking; kids can shake the ipad to throw the dice. What I love is when using this app with students it promotes that players use problem solving skills for adding, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions.I like how it gives that answer and you must find out what would give you the answer by working with the four dice that you roll.

  • Great math game

    by Ezigbo

    A very good app to help learners practice the four basic functions with fractions. In this unique approach, players use numbers rolled in dice to build an equation to match a provided solution. The Bluetooth feature allows multi-player games in two devices. This amplifies the competition hook that appeals to young students. Based on a great concept, this app promises to solidify learners' grasp of the math concepts they practice.
