This version is Middle School Math Bash, for Middle School and Junior High students ages around 11-14 (Grades 6-8) in the US.
Math Bash is a range of applications that offers students a chance to engage and practice their maths skills on the go and in a fun way. Maths Bash is written specifically for iPhone and iPad.
It was written by a working maths teacher and is based on software that has been tried and tested on pupils over several years.
The app has 2 parts:
-the standard math quiz using multiple choice, against the time and competing on high scores
-the pairs game offers you the change to access the same questions, but in a match the question and answer game
What do you get?
The Math Bash applications offer pupils opportunity to:
-engage quickly in random questions
-choose questions based around topics (e.g. Algebra, Number, Data, Shape)
-choose specific topics to practice
-choose length of play
-engage in topics by the conventional multiple choice mode
-engage in topics in a pairs game
-high scores tables
-high scores in Game Center
-achievements to attain in Game Center
There are currently about 80 sets of questions available. All questions are randomized in order and use random numbers, so you will never get the same game twice. The questions cover around 80% of the topics found on the full curricula.
