Tap the 3s: Number Puzzle Game of Math by Hyemin Chung FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1 iPhone Screenshot 2

Tap the 3s: Number Puzzle Game of Math comes from Hyemin Chung.
The game tests how fast you can identify multiples of 3 & 7.  You are given a 3×3 grid and must tap those numbers as fast as possible. If you tap a tile that’s not a multiple, you lose points and time.

If you can complete 20 3×3 grids within the given time, (I think it’s 90 seconds), you’ll get bonus points.

This game has only 63 people on the Leaderboard. At the moment, I’m #3.

It’s free.
Test your math reflexes.

Math Puzzles – IF, THEN… by Viacheslav Komarivskyi FREE

 Math Puzzles – IF, THEN… comes from Viacheslav Komarivskyi. The object is to look at a set of numbers, find the pattern and then prove that you have cracked the code.

There are 30 levels and they get hard pretty quick. I spent way too much time on level 11.

At the moment, I’m somewhere around level 18.

Number Chef: math puzzle app for all devices

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 3

Roope Rainisto recently contacted me about his new puzzle app game Number Chef.
It’s a math puzzle which requires simple adding, subtracting, multiplying etc.

Placeholder image  Placeholder image

The objective is to combine adjacent tiles to form the numbers at the bottom. The game essentially is about Order of Operations – typically a math concept that’s taught to 7th graders here in the U.S.

Very Important: When any number is placed on an odd number – the two #s will get added.


When any number is placed on an even number – the even # is subtracted.

Look at the second image.  See the question mark? Whatever number is placed on that, will get cloned.

Some levels have numbers that alternate between being positive & negative.

See the bombs in the third image? I don’t know how they work, haven’t gotten that far yet!

There are 150 levels and I’ve done about 45.  Number Chef is FREE. So do give it a chance.

A very surprising math lesson.

http://numberphile.com/videos/analytical_continuation1.html

What is the sum of 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +…….to infinity?  Should be infinity right?

Check out this video. It’s about 7 minutes long. You do not need to know calculus to follow the logic.

Sumaze! – free math puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 3
Dr Richard Lissaman from the Mathematics Institute at University of Warwick, UK, recently contacted me about his puzzle app game called Sumaze!
The object is to start with the blue number on top – Your Man – and get to the exit.  Along the way, you will change your value in order  to pick up keys and get to the exit. Essentially, Sumaze! tests your knowledge of Order of Operations, which is normally a pre-algebra concept.
However, things can get pretty complicated.  The game starts with easy stuff and gets to Logs, exponents, square roots and I’m not sure what.  (I haven’t gotten to Fermat’s Room yet.) Still, even in the easier rooms, there are a couple of challenging problems.

Sumaze! is one of those games that has some good puzzles, but will not be very successful. (The App Store has scores of those! One of my favorite puzzles made only $ 10.)
My recommendation is to overhaul the mechanics to resemble Qwhizzle. That game is similar: but is very successful because of its sparkling graphics, the element of time and the opportunity to compete against others.

Chisla – Math puzzle and brain teaser with cool arithmetic challenge by Anton Boyarkin

iPhone Screenshot 2  iPhone Screenshot 1

Chisla – Math puzzle and brain teaser with cool arithmetic challenge is a point scoring math puzzle app game.  The object is to tap on the numbers that add up to the target at the top center of the screen.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

In the Normal mode: tiles disappear when you use them. However, when the tiles in a single row are all used, new ones will pop up to replace them. You always need lots of numbers in this game.

In the Advanced mode: tiles can be used 3 times before disappearing.  Again, when all the tiles in a single row are gone, new ones will come to life.

I forgot to mention: there is a 15 second time limit.  Finding numbers that add up to 16 is fast and easy.  When 62 pops up and your numbers have dwindled, things get panicky.
There is a leaderboard.  At the moment, my scores are:
Normal: 43 which places me 144 out of 9,478 players.
Advanced: 66 which places me 23rd out of 1914 players.

Solvego – Math Game

iPhone Screenshot 4iPhone Screenshot 5
Solvego – Math Game comes from Halil Salis. The objective: how fast can you find the order of operations to get the target number.
The easy mode: 3 numbers are given.
The medium mode: 4 numbers are given.
The hard modes: 5 numbers are given.
Like a lot of puzzle apps out there, nobody is playing this game. I think there are less than 60 people on the Leaderboard.
A more polished version of this is Qwhizzle which isn’t quite the same, but very similar.
