Math Garden is a new web based training-tracking system to playfully train and measure mathematical skills. Watch our video here.
Children can help their plants grow in their garden by playing math games. By clicking on a twig in the garden, a child will start a math subject, e.g. addition, and will play a game to increase his/her skill in that domain. After leaving the game, the twig will grow depending on the child’s level of success. The better children play, the more beautiful their plants grow. Gradually, more twigs will appear, such as for subtraction and multiplication.
The results of the online exercises are presented in the Garden Center. The Garden Center allows teachers and parents to monitor the mathematical progress, and the strengths and weaknesses of their pupils.

Children must maintain their garden, because if they do not regularly play in it, the plants will wither. In this way, Math Garden stimulates children to practice on a weekly basis. Commitment is not only rewarded with blooming plants but also with virtual coins. The more often children practice, the more coins they earn. Their coins can be exchanged for a variety of enticing prizes. From ribbons to diamonds, children will earn fun rewards.
