Funexpected Math

by

Funexpected Math is an interactive environment for kids 3-7 years old with a continually growing collection of mini-games on math-related topics. Children develop a mathematical mindset effortlessly while playing engaging visual games.

We don’t teach children stand-alone skills, but rather help them to cultivate various types of thinking and improve their learning skills.
The experience is engaging and tactile: tap, cut, or slide the objects on the screen to propel the story forward. It’s gentle education nourishing a child’s math mindset, but more than anything, it’s a friendly environment for learning in a natural and intuitive way.

As children actively engage in the game and progress through the tasks, they are doing so at their own pace. The difficulty is personalized and adaptive: the autonomy of gameplay allows young students to progress only when ready. All mini-games are designed in a “low-floor, high-ceiling” type. So the entering barrier of understanding how to play and doing initial levels is quite low. But the higher levels of complexity are fit for kids outside the formal age range of 3-7 years.

While the app feels like a fun game, it is grounded in research. We work with educators and researchers on math education around the world to bring the latest research findings into a beautiful and engaging educational product.
