Told ya it was a gaming kind of day, got another launch for you, this one is a freebie! The game is called Math QuizUp and it aims to help you with math as you might have expected. I’ve always been able to do most math problems in my head and people can’t figure out how I do it, I just do it, I don’t know how I do it, I just can. From what I’ve seen with my kids in school they seem to rely too much on technology and papers and pencils etc, and not doing it in your head. My physics teacher had a saying: “Why use brains when you have batteries?” I never agreed with that, you don’t learn using a calculator to solve problems, you’re given the answer and to me it’s cheating. My kids can’t grasp that concept, they want to use a calculator and I don’t let them. They can use it too check their work sure, but not actually do it. I think this would be great game for kids and even most adults to learn to do math in their heads. Check it out, it’s free, here’s some screenshots for you and the full PR:
