FUN MATH PRACTICE:

Based on the Common Core Curriculum, Marble Math is an engaging way for upper elementary students to practice mental math. Earn new marbles and collect bonuses while reinforcing key concepts in pursuit of a high score. But watch out math whizzes! You’ll need to be focused and nimble to avoid the obstacles in your path.

WRONG ANSWER? NO PROBLEM:

Marble Math gives you the option to Replay the question or Show the correct answer in a game simulation, before moving on to the next problem.

MULTIPLE USER ACCOUNTS:

Add as many custom profiles as you like. Individual game settings, including problem types by level, and scores are saved in each user profile. And the profile avatar creator is so much fun, it’s like its own game.

CUSTOMIZE FOR SPECIFIC CONCEPTS AND ABILITY:

Along with high scores and three separate difficulty levels to suit different ages and abilities, there are 16 unique marble styles to choose from. Parents and teachers can customize gameplay to concentrate on specific math concepts by selecting problem types for each player and level or just let the game roll with random problem generation for unlimited practice and play!
