Feb. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- In an effort to better achieve its mission of offering education content to anyone, anywhere, for free, GCFLearnFree.org recently launched an interactive math game mobile app for the iPad titled Good at Math.

Good at Math allows the player to choose between practicing addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, or all four skills at once. As the heroine Good battles various adversaries, the math questions increase in difficulty. In each level, the player is given less time, challenging young and old alike.

Features of the game include: six levels of play, non-repeating math problems which allow for a new game each time of play, and character recognition technology that allows the player to draw answers directly on the screen.

Good at Math is the 13th mobile app created by GCFLearnFree.org, although this is the first original application not based on material previously created for use on the website. This mobile app is also GCFLearnFree.org’s first foray in interactive gaming in mobile applications. Although currently only available on the iPad and on the GCFLearnFree.org website, there are plans to make Good at Math available as a Facebook application, as well as on additional mobile devices.

Also available for play on desktop and laptop computers at http://www.gcflearnfree.org/math/goodatmath.
