AppsForHomeschooling.com had it right when they referred to this app an
"adrenaline-pumping (...) battle-style math drill app. It was a huge hit with my
kids too! The child chooses his character (the dinosaur is particularly beloved)
and then battle with creatures set by the computer (different each stage), while
jumping in the air to select numbers. When two numbers are selected a math
equation is formed with the numbers, and the child must then pick the correct
answer from 3 choices. There is also a practice mode also. With points earned
for correct math answers, you earn gems and trophies for different achievements
and unlock different characters etc. NO in-app purchases, yay for that! The kids
think it is awesome and they are learning!
Update: Math Guardians now includes data tracking which allows parents/teachers to access scoring and progress information for multiple children!
