What Educators Need to Know:

Do you have Halloween on the brain?  I know I do!  Check out Artgig Apps’ newest creation – just in time for Halloween!

Say you are a ghost. You’ve already haunted every house in Mystery Math Town. You’ve collected your buddies, the fireflies, and your art collection is pretty extensive, if a bit peculiar.

But you are ready to move on. What’s a ghost to do?  Ghosts are immortal but powerless without a home to torment.

You hear about a new hot spot. It sounds pretty promising. It’s called Mystery Math Museum, and the premise is the same: move from room to room collecting and releasing dragonflies while solving math problems. You hear that you’ll need to brush up on your division skill set. Now that’s something you didn’t need to do in Math Town!

You decide to give it a try. The first museum has a sports theme. Sweet! As you pass through, the portraits, once again, begin to talk to you. You think they might make an nice addition to your gallery, so you press on, hoping to score some gold coins for your excellent computational skills. As expected, you are soon rewarded, and you decide to make Mystery Math Museum your permanent residence.  Lucky you! You didn’t have to travel far to find yourself right at home.

Once again, Artgig Apps creates a product that appeals to adults and children alike.  Gaming in education is a hot topic right now, and these creative developers have their pulse on how to maximize learning. The ability to add multiple users with varying abilities is essential to the modern classroom.  I love that a simple tap can change the game from simple addition to division using dice to represent numbers. Enrich or re-mediate? Mystery Math Museum can do both!

This app is just quirky enough to get your attention and just delightful enough to keep it!   Like any other institution with engaging exhibits, I will have to drag my kids out of Mystery Math Museum!  It is well worth the price of admission!
