Teachers recommend Box Drop Math because it helps children master basic math facts. By answering math questions, players earn boxes and are then challenged to build a stack without knocking them over. Some boxes are special and add bonus points! A fun animation with sometimes unexpected results is played once a level is complete.
Players earn top points for answering equations correctly within 3 seconds - a demonstration of mastery. A progress monitoring graph keeps players and parents informed as mastery is achieved. Box Drop Math starts with simple equations that get harder as mastery is achieved. The game tracks and keeps scores for up to 5 players.
Box Drop Math is designed by Jeff Holmes, an experienced instructional designer and researcher of how kids learn with technology. Although we don’t always want kids to “just learn the facts”, there remain a few areas, such as basic math facts, where sustained practice and memorization is essential for success.
Box Drop Math provides the right level of fun and motivation to keep learners practicing until they memorize these basic equations. The game is designed to reward early achievement but keeps the learning challenging by providing more difficult questions as players gain confidence in their math skills.
