I've developed an android math game called MathLab that has started to gain popularity. It's a simple fill-in-the-grid puzzle with variable cell sizes and locking cells. My daughter's math teacher got very excited about it, so she asked me to add age/grade information to each difficulty setting so that she can recommend it to parents. I'd be very thankful to anyone who can provide me with that kind of rating info.

Also, does this seem suitable for the Google Play for Education program?

    $\begingroup$ I like this question, but probably no one here will be willing to download and play the game just to rate the levels. Can you edit your question to include more details of how the game is played? What exactly is the difficulty that the player will be facing at each level, or on each difficulty setting? How did you decide to make the difficulty settings distint? $\endgroup$ Nov 27 '17 at 16:03

    $\begingroup$ I would choose a different name. $\endgroup$ Nov 27 '17 at 18:55
  • $\begingroup$ This looks wonderful, but I agree with both Dave and Mike: First, in addition to the name being a bit ambiguous Pearsons has a piece of software called "My Math Lab" that this may get confused with. Second, why don't you ask your daughter's teacher what grade levels she would recommend? She's played the game and is in a good position to what grade level the requisite math fits in. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It seems that the best way to assign age or grade information to each level would be to test each level on children with different ages and grades. $\endgroup$ Nov 28 '17 at 1:47

    $\begingroup$ @Nick A 12-year-old stuck in the age group labelled 6 to 8 years will quickly become discouraged. Better to call it Level 1 as in many video games. $\endgroup$ Nov 28 '17 at 13:37
