Math Crash combines simple touch-to-move hand-eye coordination with multiple-choice multiplication and division questions in a very unique way.
The app presents a problem and the student must avoid the objects with the wrong answers and crash into the correct one. Math Crash includes the times and division tables from 2-12 which can be individually selected if, for example, the child needs to work on a specific number, or set to random. There is no setting to work on multiplication or division in combination.
Each number has it's own theme. For work in the eights, for instance, the player becomes a shoe and the floating items are soccer balls. Good stuff.
My primary problem with Math Crash (99 cents) is the crash sensitivity is set far too high, especially for children just learning their times tables. Ryan immediately got too flustered with things crashing into him so quickly. E liked it a bit more but also got frustrated with the constant crashing.
I think the app could improve dramatically with the addition of settings to adjust the speed of the movement of the objects, the size of the character and the time limit.
There is also a bit of annoying glitch, albeit a minor one. To start each level, the objects have no numbers on them and the player must crash into something, but when they do the big annoying X and "wrong" pop up. That's something that should be fixed.
This is an app whose rating could go up with future updates.
