The game is aligned the CCSS for Math Operations to develop fluency in addition (1.OA.C6; 2.OA.B2) especially for single-digit addends and sums up to 20. Because of the time element in the game, repetition in finding sums, immediate feedback, freedom to fail, players have many opportunities to transfer basic math facts to long-term memory. Additionally, players are forced to move from inefficient methods (using fingers or counting) to more efficient recall strategies.
