Operation Math, by Spinlight Studio, is sizzling with excitement! The mission is possible with this new app, which grabs the kids attention immediately and keeps them engaged on their quest to do good. The goal here is to help destroy Dr. Odd and practice your basic math facts along the way. In order to open the series of locked doors, you must perform either addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or any combination of operations. You can first train in the infinite Base10 Training Room, where your performance will be tracked. When you are up for the challenge, you choose a mission. Remember to proceed with caution, your expertise will be timed… and in order to proceed your computing must be accurate. Cool, huh?
The developers suggest that you, “Cue the spy music. Grab your secret code watch. And download the new elementary app that has kids everywhere learning their math — and loving it.”
We couldn’t agree more, Spinlight Studios has earned our vote of confidence with this app! This group is already known for doing an awesome job with its previous releases in the TallyTot Series.
Operation Math has a wide range of audience appeal and can be incredibly helpful to keep your child fresh with basic math facts. The premise of being on a mission is so apropos, we keep waiting for Illya Kuryakin from the old TV series A Man From U.N.C.L.E. to make an appearance. Check it out!
The app description states, “Dr. Odd is on a global quest to eliminate the world’s even numbers. And it’s your job to stop him, by seeking out his secret bases, destroying his menacing mainframes and making the world a safer place for math.” To complete a mission the player must answer a certain number of math questions in 60 seconds. The timing element can unnerve some kids and that is when the training room comes in handy. The kids we worked with were excited every step of the way and especially liked choosing the location and the concept of traveling the globe for each mission. This keeps the game player in control and gives the players a mini social studies lesson as well. The series of missions and the anticipation of unlocking more doors keeps the users engaged and begging for more, even when it became challenging! This was true for both the boys and the girls. Completing missions unlocks vast rewards in the way of trendy new uniforms or watches for their base agent to wear. The kids love it! The narration and soundtrack are spot-on professional and we here at Teachers With Apps wish we had a game this cool and this educational when were growing up! We already anticipate Operation Math becoming a mainstay in the world of great math apps.
