How to play.

NOTE: These instructions are the same for Math Classroom Challenge (iOS/Windows) and Math Street Challenge. You choose how and when to play: iOS, iOS Augmented Reality, Windows, Oculus Rift.

IMPORTANT: remember that the augmented version of the game makes use of augmented reality. Be sure your device is ready to support it. iPhone 6S/6S plus onwards, iPhone SE, iPad PRO (all of them), iPad 5th generation onwards.

Other versions are available for a wide range of hardware on iOS and Windows.

The game is designed to be played outdoors, with the player in the middle of an imaginary circle on which the scenario is generated. There are two types of mathematical panels: static and dynamic.

The static panels propose random exercises, of configurable difficulty, whose numbers have to be searched through the stage, and bathe them with the water of the hose that we carry.

Dynamic panels appear anywhere, but can be repositioned, or even invoked manually, and contain three solutions. Irrigate with water the correct solution. Dragons, on the other hand, allow an error to be subtracted, although sometimes they will cause the opposite: they will add up to an error. So the player must decide whether to use them or not. The rocket, when it takes off, multiplies the points obtained by two during the flight.

The maximum time, from infinity to two minutes, can be set to resolve static panels. Dynamic panels can be invoked as many times as desired, but always one at a time.

Config panel

Here you can configure the game. You can choose math operations for static and dynamic math panels, if you want first and quadratic equations, and decimals. If you choose “inverted numbers”, they act as wildcards. This makes the game easier. Uncheck if you want a more complex challenge.

“All solutions wrong” means sometimes all the solutions can be really wrong in dynamic panels. Don’t throw water to them. Crazy mode accelerates the random generation of dynamic panels. Negatives implies there can be negative results.

On the other hand, Benny the pet will help to find the numbers that allow to solve the static panels, and will keep still if at that moment there is none available.

After the game is over, a final screen with the results and statistics will appear. This screen is always accessible from the main menu. Happy math!
