"I spend all my free time with my girls but unfortunately there is a lot of "musts" that just has to be done. It makes me feel a bit less guilty if I know that the time they spend in front of the screen is meaningful."

- Karin Sätter

Many of us at Zcooly have ourselves struggled with mathematics and we know the heavy feeling that comes with not understanding.

Our recipe for great math games is to find the inherently fun parts of mathematics and use that to encourage learning through game mechanics.

Why play games to learn math?

Feedback

Games are great at giving you clear feedback and using it to keep you focused. It's very frustrating losing a game and not knowing why - but if you know why you'll try again and do it right. This is how we learn new things and our game designers are therefore always chasing better ways to convey that feeling of "aha!".

Motivation

Motivation comes from within and therefore it's important for us to create learning experiences that truly engage the player. Great math games are more than just virtual money and happy exclamations in the game. If the game rewards the child in the wrong instance focus is removed from the goal of learning new things. Our games have lots of rewards that make it fun, but we are conscious of when and how to reward the child to avoid common pitfalls of digital learning.

Adaptive learning

It's kind of a bummer to let your kid's age decide what they'll learn. That's why many of our games are developed to be fun and adaptive to your child's level and need, while still challenging and developing their skills. Games are the most fun when they're challenging without being seemingly impossible to win.

We make knowledge fun.
