[prMac.com] Madison, WI - FastMath Quest is the newest way to get your youngsters to learn their math facts!
Math Questers start off by choosing a character. Lords, Ladies, Jesters, Knights - there are a number to choose from, each with custom art. Once your character is chosen, it's time to start your quest!
Start off by going on a simple adventure learning the very basics of addition. Later adventures introduce subtraction, multiplication and division. The advanced journeys get into orders of operation and multiple operands. If a problem is too difficult, there's a skip action. Of course too many skips will result in escaping from the battle!
Simple: 3 4 = ?
Orders of operation: 2 3 x 4 = ?
Orders of operation: (2 3) x 4 = ?
When quests are completed, the questers are rewarded with gold. When enough gold is saved up, a trip to the pet store is in order! There, questers can purchase companions to join them on their journey.
FastMath Quest will surely keep your students entertained and challenged! The ability to purchase companions will keep them coming back for more.
Future enhancements will allow MathQuesters to purchase new backgrounds and "bling" for characters and pets. Additional enhancements will include simple algebraic equations.
