Indie developer Crave Creative has released Math Facts Mahjong, an educational mobile game designed to teach math using, you guess it, the classic tile-laying game Mahjong. Math Facts Mahjong is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.
The goal in the game is to remove tiles by pairing true math equations, such as “1+ 10” and “11.” Removing tiles will free up more tiles and unlock more possible equations as players try to get rid of as many tiles as they can.
The game features addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations on the tiles. It includes 12 different layouts, 15 background pictures, and 15 tile designs. If you get stuck or make a mistake, there’s an easy undo button and hint feature to keep the action moving.
Math Facts Mahjong is designed to be fun for kids while teaching them basic and advanced math equations. The app is a one-time purchase of $1.99, and features an age rating of 4+ on iOS and 6-12 on Android. It’s rated E for Everyone.
