The math game kids actually ask to play.
Link colors to numbers to fun in a math board game that’s addicting and stealthy. Prime Climb makes you exercise math skills while you’re distracted at play.
Married mathematicians Daniel Finkel and Katherine Cook are the architects, creating a new take on doing equations. After training teachers for many years, they turned their attention to designing a visual, intuitive game to help kids become fluent in math. Much like learning a language, getting the key concepts down while you’re young can help them take root.
To play, you roll two ten-sided dice—then you use operations to decide how many spaces you can move. Add the two numbers or subtract, multiply, or divide them, depending on which total will give you the best turn. Climb your way up to 101—gaining special powers and bumping opponents back to the start along the way.
When we played the game, our teenage kids even asked to play it again. That’s right—teens asking to play a math game with their parents. There’s no greater endorsement than that.
