Review:

An older sibling of Addimals, Mt. Multiplis

teaches students in grades 3-5 multiplication strategies through scaffolded lessons that go beyond memorization and encourage conceptual understanding with a playful approach. The premise of these adventure-based lessons is this: Linka, is flying home from a successful treasure hunt and encounters a ferocious storm. Although she is without injury, the bridges and her plane didn't fare as well. Players must solve single digit multiplication problems to rebuild the bridges that must be crossed to retrieve the parts of the plane from the evil island dwellers called the Crags and help Linka fly home to El Sumado. (phew!) Comic-book styled illustrations, well-voiced character personalities, as well as story invested problem solving (the planks cost X dollars, we need X number of planks to complete the bridge, how much will it cost to complete the bridge) combine to make this a teaching tool for home or classroom. As with Addimals, Teachley encourages teachers to register for a free account.
