[prMac.com] Westchester, New York - InterAction Education and Zephyr Games today are pleased to introduce Math Evolve: A Math Game For The Next Generation. Math Evolve is an innovative educational app that helps kids practice multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. Math Evolve is the premier app of its kind, providing a fun and engaging way for kids to improve their math fluency, number sense, and mental math skills. Appropriate for ages 6 and up.
* The most fun and engaging math app available for kids
* Combines math practice with gaming, creating a true synergy between learning and play
* Exciting gameplay, beautiful artwork, and unique music
* Parents and teachers gain valuable performance statistics to help students improve
* Hours of content that can be customized for children of all ages
Achieving success in all levels of math starts with having a solid foundation in multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. Reaching a level of comfort with these skills often requires hours of repetitive practice. Traditionally, students have relied upon flashcards and repetitive drills that quickly become boring. Math Evolve was created to give students, parents, and teachers a much more enjoyable alternative.
The writer and creator of the original concept is Adam Coccari, an elementary school teacher and math instructor from California. After teaching fourth and sixth grade for a few years, Adam became passionate about teaching children through games and interactive media. Along with artist Clinton Bopp, he started InterAction Education with the mission of making games that are fun, inspiring, and educational for kids of all ages.
Math Evolve takes educational gaming to the next level, allowing children to practice math skills while embarking on a quest to save the universe. Math Evolve seamlessly blends math practice with a video game to produce an engaging entertaining, and educational experience. The app shines with very high production value and imagination, as beautiful artwork and dazzling special effects bring the game to life. As they progress, players evolve through three unique environments: the microscopic world, the ocean, and outer space. Challenging enemies, epic bosses, and a rich soundtrack make Math Evolve the most complete and immersive math game on the App Store.
In addition to the game (story mode), there is also a flexible "practice mode" for doing math drills without the gaming elements. A player's performance statistics are saved in the app so that parents, teachers, and tutors can help students improve by targeting their practice. These two game modes, flexible difficulty settings, high scores, and achievements, give Math Evolve an unprecedented level of content and replay value.
Project Development, Animation, and GUI Design was done by Teravision Games LLC. Audio Design, and Composition by Roarke Menzies, Sound Effects were done by Steve Horowitz of The Code International, and Art Design by Clinton Bopp. Finally, the game was produced and published by Zephyr Games, Inc., Kenneth Johnson, CEO.
