Quality

When it comes to quality Mystery Math Museum has really gone above and beyond the call of duty with amazing graphics that tell a story and set the perfect scene for this app. Within each themed museum, there are various exhibit rooms that not only fit the theme of the museum, but also are realistic. The interactive items in the museum also make fun sound effects when tapped and touched which adds a more realistic feel to the interesting exhibits.

Another thing that is great about this app is the user interface. Without a lot of instruction, children will be able to tap and touch their way through the app to explore the various museums and answer some challenging, but fun math problems.

Education

There is no doubt that Mystery Math Museum will help children with their math skills. Children can practice their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills as well as increase the difficulty by selecting numbers 0-10, 11-20, 21-50 etc. These options allow for easy customization for each child that may be playing with the app.

What I really love about this app is how each equation is set up. Instead of providing an equation like 2 + 2 and asking for the answer, this app provides the answer and asks users to select the appropriate numbers that would result in a particular answer. The catch is that the numbers must come from a collection of numbers users find throughout the app. This added challenge really gets children to think about each math problem a little differently. Another fun way to add a level of difficulty is by showing the numbers either as traditional numbers, tally marks, or numbers on dice. In the event players get stuck and need a hint, they have three lifelines they can use to help them which is great!

When it comes to education, Mystery Math Museum is awesome!

Entertainment

Not only is Mystery Math Museum a great way to practice a variety of math skills, but the concept is so much fun. The idea is to move through each museum and collect a set number of dragonflies (or coins in the bonus level) to move on to the next museum. But, in order to move through the museum, players must accurately answer each math problem that allows them access through doorways, staircases, and windows. There are a variety of numbers scattered throughout each room that players can collect and use when needed, but they can only keep a total of 8 numbers in their possession at a time. The challenge is not only to answer each equation accurately, but also to be strategic about collecting numbers and moving through the various doorways to find each firefly.

The developers have done an incredible job creating a fun and challenging game that will education and entertain children as they practice their math skills. This fun game would also be a great treat for teachers to provide their students as a way to break up regular math practice.

Value

Priced at just under three dollars this app is a steal. When you consider how much fun it is and all the wonderful ways your child can practice their math skills, you can’t beat the price. And with the multi-user set up, this is one that you will likely keep in your education arsenal for a long time.

Child Friendliness

Not only is this app incredibly educational and fun, but it is also easy for children to use. The concept is pretty self explanatory and once children get in and start exploring the app, they will instantly fall in love with the game-like set up and will have fun solving each challenge.

There are also no in app purchases or social media links to worry about so parents don’t have to worry about children being distracted from the app. There is a link to other apps by the same developer, however it is protected. Overall, the developers have done a great job creating a fun and safe educational app for children.
