Educational software company launches free math fact computer game
Math Facts Matter's 'Space Challenge' for grade 3 to adult puts new spin on math fact fluency
By: Schoolware, Inc.
To address this, educational software company Math Facts Matter, a division of Schoolware, Inc., has released a free educational math fact game called "Space Challenge," a quick and easy math fact assessment tool for anyone in grade 3 to adult. Players answer a set of math facts and compete to rank on the universal score chart. The fun, mobile-friendly challenge quickly benchmarks "F3," or "fearless fact fluency" using colorful graphics, video, and an engaging storyline. Teachers can receive diagnostic reports for students by email.
Space Challenge and other Math Facts Matter products are designed to boost the math instruction of classroom teachers bogged down with educational and administrative tasks.
"Teachers today have to meet ever increasing demands, teaching more students and more curriculum in less time," said Kathy Robinson, president of Schoolware, Inc. and Math Facts Matter. "In addition, they must balance direct instruction within ever-shrinking budgetary constraints."
Robinson is a former classroom instructor, Title 1 teacher, gifted and talented director.
"The Math Facts Matter family of products, including Space Challenge, Countdown, Space LAB, and Blast Off!, can help contribute to fact fluency and alleviate the academic strain on teachers and students."
