Math Bakery Multiply/Divide is based on the same pedagogical principles as the other games in the award-winning Math Bakery series.
It provides the student with:
• Better understanding which increases motivation.
Tasks are visualized through elegant attractive graphics showing an environment easily recognized by children. Dad the Baker demonstrates, using cookies on a baking tray, how to multiply and divide. The principle is used for example such computations as 5 x 6, 56/8 or √36. Suddenly math becomes real and intuitive.
• Help and Advice
Whenever it gets hard or goes wrong, help is available towards the correct answer. The child need never therefore feel failure – and will therefore succeed!
Whenever a task requires help, it is repeated immediately until the child is at last able to manage alone. A great way to absorb knowledge.
• Reward system
A kind reward system encourages practice, leading to ability: collect cookie jars and build a super gingerbread funfair.
• Play together
”The Duel” section allows a child to challenge a friend or adult by creating own math tasks. The Duel can even be played in teams and is useful whenever a teacher or parent wishes to demonstrate a particular idea.
