Are you ready to put your math skills to the ultimate challenge? Here is your chance to compete head-to-head in our exciting, fast-paced, multi-player arena.

Choose to compete in Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, or Division.

Each game lasts exactly one minute. All of the players are given the same series of math problems. The faster the player can answer the questions, the better chance he/she has of winning the game.

Math Mayhem reinforces the memorization of math facts by requiring the student to quickly recall the answer to the problem displayed on the screen. By introducing the aspect of competition, the student has the incentive of recalling the answer as quickly as possible.

Speed is important, but so is accuracy. Students are rewarded for being able to answer several questions correctly in a row. The student will hear the announcer proclaim "HEATING UP" when the student has answered five problems correctly in a row. This gives a score bonus that continues to grow as long as they continue to answer correctly.

At the end of the game the student is able to compare their scores to the other competitors in the game. The student may also see how his/her score stacks up against the best scores of the day.
