"Connect Sums" is one of a series of challenges included in the award winning "Math Doodles" iPad app. This version of "Connect Sums" has been designed specifically for the iPhone/iPodTouch screens.

It wasn't until after my school years, that I became a lover of math. I managed to slip through all of those classes, text books, and homework assignments, without learning one of the most important math lessons of all. Math IS FUN!

I design Math Doodles to provide a place where anyone can discover the joy, wonder, and fun of mathematics.

Math Doodle challenges provide plenty of mathematical practice, within a recreational math setting. The mathematical puzzles allow users to play, explore, and experiment with mathematical concepts, while developing and strengthening their strategy and problem solving skills. Math Doodles challenges are designed to allow for multiple solutions and strategies. There isn't only one correct answer.

CONNECT SUMS

Select a series of values on a grid so that the sum of the selected values equal the value of the target number.

Users can choose from 25 different value representations and two levels of difficulty.

CHALLENGE MODES:

1. Solve Mode: Strategically solve the puzzle in the fewest number of moves.

2. Infinity Mode: Play as long as you wish.

3. Race Mode: Rack up as many points as you can solving puzzles, before time runs out. The timer is represented by a tab of paper that works its way around the edge of the screen.

DIFFICULTY MODES

1. Easy Mode: Selected values need not be neighbors of each other on the grid.

2. Hard Mode: To make things a little bit harder, each value selected must be a neighbor of the previous value selected on the grid.
