[prMac.com] Hong Kong - StusApps have released Mathical Vol.1 to the Mac Appstore today. Mathical is a 5 in 1 compilation of awesome, fast paced games for primary / elementary aged children to practice mental calculation skills. A version for iPhone and iPad was released earlier this week to much praise by reviewers. The app has been featured in a front page article on the number 1 iPhone blog tipb.com.
The games have been developed by primary school teachers to target key skills. Mathical games all have customizable and increasing levels of difficulty depending on the age or ability of the child. Each game was created with continual play testing by children. The skills the games encourage are:
* Multiplication facts
* Division Facts
* Times Tables
* Addition and Subtraction
* Inverse Operations
* Place Value
* Ordering decimals
* Fractions of shapes
Included in Volume 1 are the following games:
Multiple Slime Climb:
Slurp, jump and pop. Choose a times table and then help your slime climb up the tower popping only bubbles from that times table. Hit a wrong one and it's game over.
The cute little birds have got confused in this place value game. Order the birds by numerical value. Includes numbers from 1 - 20 all the way to 2 decimal places depending on the difficulty level you choose.
Move your daring monster to the correct answer to the division calculation. If you're ready in the right place when the timer stops you'll safely avoid the huge heavy log that's coming crashing down.
Missing Numer Skydiving
Choose a target number and either addition or subtraction questions. Guide your skydiver through the correct answer targets as you speed towards the ground.
Simply move the paddles to guide the fraction balls to the correct fraction on the large rectangle (which is much harder than it sounds.).
