Review by Fides
Mystery Math Museum is an excellent follow up to Artgig Apps’ Mystery Math Town. In Mystery Math Town, children solved addition, subtraction, and multiplication problems while searching houses and mansions for coins and missing fireflies. This time, along with addition, subtraction, and multiplication, they will also be solving division problems while searching different museums for coins and missing dragonflies.
I really like the museum theme because it introduces and exposes children to history and the arts. They have an art, music, western, ancient culture, sports, prehistoric, and space museums. Children are sure to be entertained by all the items they see in the museums. Clicking on museum items will bring up an audio related to the particular piece. I like this feature specially in the music museum since it helps children learn what the instruments sound like. I think it would be great if, in the future, clicking in museum items would also bring up a short description of the item. Imagine what amazing educational value it adds if, say, when you click on a piano you get a pop-up that shows the type and name of the musical instrument; or when you click on a painting, you get a description that includes the name, artist, time period, and medium used for the piece.
Other things I like in Mystery Math Museum include the ability to create accounts for multiple users, the ease of setting skill levels before and anytime during game play, the option to include tally marks and dice. The game play is simple to understand, a lot of fun, and gives children so many opportunities to sharpen their math skills. They will have to go through each museum once to find the dragonflies and several times more to find coins that will earn them paintings for their own gallery.
Mystery Math Museum is a top notch app for developing mathematical skills that children will absolutely enjoy. I highly recommend it!
You can download the app here for $2.99!
