Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Mathmateer is an educational arithmetic and basic math game. Kids solve problems — choosing from addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division — to earn money to build rockets. Each operation includes questions at three difficulty levels, with more difficult problems earning kids more money. When they’ve earned enough money, kids can design and build their own rockets, which can then be launched into space on missions. Kids help guide the rocket on its trajectory by tilting the device. Missions cover such topics as odd and even numbers, money, shapes, telling time, fractions, and decimals. When the rocket reaches space, kids tap numbers or answers that fit the mission as quickly as possible before the rocket reenters the atmosphere and lands. Kids are awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals if they attain a certain score for the mission. Mathmateer allows multiple profiles, so up to five kids can design rockets and earn medals, as well as choose profile names and avatars.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Space theme saturates the whole game, making the arcade-style play really fun. The placement of math problems in space is awkward, though, and can be hard to see in the heat of beat-the-clock play.

The Support Level for Mathmateer (formerly Rocket Math) is about a 3 out of 5.

Figuring out how to launch the rockets takes some trial and error since there are no instructions. Stats on the rocket’s flight and on math problems answered correctly are reported but not tracked over time.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
