We are excited to announce the release of our next game – Motion Math: Wings! Click here to download the app and use the accelerometer to control a flying bird who travels across diverse islands, building a nest and winning colorful feathers. Along the way, the bird solves multiplication problems. Most math worksheets and math games only show numeric symbols, such as 2 x 3 = 6. Motion Math: Wings shows multiplication in six different visual forms: rows of dots, clusters of dots, “groups of” dots, a grid, a labelled grid, and symbols (2 x 3).
Fun flight animations and sound effects help learners master foundational concepts of multiplication and estimation. As with our last game, hints appear when you need them. Challenge comes in the form of Challenge Islands, where you have to get each problem right to pass, as well as levels difficult enough for adults.
Thanks to all the kids, teachers and parents who helped us design this game. During the development of the game, we visited classrooms and the Children’s Creativity Museum to gather feedback from the experts: kids. We greatly appreciate the teachers and students at the elementary schools who volunteered to user test and offer valuable feedback – Kerri Willa, Jenny Howland, Kim Davis, Ken Wong, Jill Slagter, Ben Grossman-Kahn and students at Chinese American International, Stocklmeir Elementary, De Vargas Elementary and Katherine Burke School.
As always, we appreciate your thoughtful reviews on the App Store and the comments, suggestions, and feedback you send to us. Any questions on this new math game? Leave us a comment below!
