Sushi Monster is a math app that helps students learn math fact fluency and practice whole number addition and multiplication. The way it works is simple and easy: In order to feed the monster, students are to make their calculations and try to come up with the correct number of sushi places from the sushi counter.
Students need to use ‘speed and accuracy to place sushi pieces near the monster and make the target number’. Only correct equations feed the monster. Besides feeding the monster, correct answers also earn students points, stars, trophies, and personal bests thus making the game even more exciting and challenging .
The game is composed of 12 sequenced levels: 7 addition levels and 5 multiplication levels. Each level comprises 4 rounds and each round contains 14 target numbers. Students can only move to the next level when they get 12 target numbers. When replaying the game students are provided with new numbers in each round.
Sushi Monster is definitely a practical app to help students develop math speed and accuracy using a game-based learning approach. Catchy visuals, sound effects, and the buildup of suspense as the hungry monster looks for food are all elements that enhance students engagement and drive their participation.
