Learning mathematics can be perceived as boring by many young children, especially when they are taught using the traditional rote learning method of memorization and drills. But if you add some fun elements with meaningful context, it could make a huge difference and children might even get hooked to learn it better. That’s what Adam Dream mobile app can do! Developed by Malaysia’s Terato Tech, the mobile app (for iPad and iPhone) allows young children or even teenagers to learn arithmetic with the elements of arcade, puzzles and role-playing.
In this game, the user has to take the role of a 9-year-old kid called Adam Dream who is trapped in a alienated world. The only way home is to destroy his enemies by solving math problems. If the solution is provided fast enough, user can earn “mana” to power up. There are four worlds, each with distinctive arithmetic sets of problems (e.g. World 1 is on addition and world 2 is on subtraction) and 12 levels to be completed. The difficulty increases in each level.
The app interface and characters are very engaging and neat. The stunning graphics add more appeal factor to it. It also supports multiplayer feature which allows children to compete among their peers. As simple as it may seem, the game is rather addictive and challenging. Adults would find it a good time killer as well.
The app can be downloaded from the App Store. Try it out!
