Two Player Bluetooth Math Game! You can now use two devices and play against your classmates or parents.

A math game intended for upper elementary and middle school students that helps students enjoy practicing their order of operations. The game encourages students to use higher order thinking to solve the "target" number by working backwards given the answer but not the equation. The best feature about this simple math game is that teachers are able to receive immediate feedback of their students progress through email.

Are you the best shot? Can you solve problems involving multiple steps and multiple operations? A fun interactive game to help middle school students master and understand how order of operations in math work.

This math game is made for students at different age groups and skill levels. For example an elementary student could use simple addition and subtraction to achieve the target where as a middle school student could perform complex combinations of many operations to reach the target.

This area is one of my passions, and I think one of the least explored and emphasized area in education. One of my biggest goals with these math apps is to create and figure out a way to implement formative assessment strategies into math games so teachers can have a better understanding of how their students are doing. This game has a built in reporting feature that informs the teacher how the student is doing and how much time they spend playing the game.

What Some Teachers have said about the Print Version of this game:

Great center activity. Simple to prepare yet more challenging to play as opposed to simply putting numbers in order. Just what I was looking for. Thanks. - Heather White

We would love to receive feedback from you to help us in creating and evolving this game into the best learning environment for your students or children.
