How is Math Makers useful for teachers?
Math Makers is designed to introduce difficult math concepts to children by having them solve puzzles. Each section contains difficult areas of math that correspond to a certain grade.
The game helps children understand many math principles, such as place value, fractions, comparison, and more, without assuming that they have already learned them. The ﬁrst levels are designed to familiarize children with the game and teach basic concepts, and later levels use these concepts to show more difficult mathematical concepts, as well as introduce proper math symbols.

As a homeschool family, we have found this game invaluable for introducing math concepts and operations to our 4 year old. After two months of guided play, my child's number sense and intuitive math ability have skyrocketed beyond my expectations, laying a solid foundation for the first grade math curriculum we will be following. I appreciate the play-based pegagogical approach that the developers have pursued in the game design, I can affirm that it really works for younger learners. Thank you!
My daughter loves this app and would happily play for hours if I let her. She is fully engaged, challenged and always asking to play! Today she was excited to create her own level in creative mode for other kids to play. Awesome app and Canadian made - even better 🙂
