Here are just two of our games and how they can help you:
Moving Maths is one of the maths workout games we have in the Peak app.
In the game, the user is presented with a stream of moving equations. Each equation is made up of multiple cards with some card spaces left blank to allow the user to touch and drag either a number or a function from the tray at the bottom of the screen.
The game is designed as a problem-solving game played against a timer, with the objective of correctly completing as many equations before the time runs out and the equations move up and off the screen. This game can help you to train your
- Quantitative reasoning
- Working memory.
Square Numbers is another maths workout game available to play as part of your daily workout or on its own.
The game presents a “Target” each round, a number e.g. 13 and tiles with numbers on appear underneath this target. The objective of the game is to tap on the appropriate numbers which total the target at the top of the screen.
This can further assist in training your mind to do math sums quickly. Square Numbers, as well as the rest of the games in the app, present a timer on the screen. This can encourage fast thinking under pressure.
Invented in 2004, Kenken is similar to Sudoku in its premise, but has a mathematical twist. The aim of the game is to fill in squares, like Sudoku. However, in Kenken, certain cells are marked off by darker lines with a number inside. Using any arithmetic function you must make the target number for that specific cage.
Like many games of this kind, the difficulty level of this game can vary, depending on the:
- Size of the square
- Complexity of logic
- Form of arithmetic.
There you have it, three examples of games which can be played on your commute home, in the queue at Starbucks, or even during an incredibly boring family event.
