Game of the Week: Zapper

MBGoTW-ZapperWhere do the top Cadets of the ISP get their training for Red Alert Missions? At the Zapper simulator in the Math Academy! This special game allows you to experience what it is like in sitting in the cockpit during a Red Alert Mission and using your math skills to help destroy incoming asteroids that could potentially harm our ship! If you want to become as sharp as Max and GC are when they fly through the galaxy, then we highly recommend getting started on this Game of the Week mission! http://budurl.me/MBGoTW22

Game of the Week: Zapper

MB-GoTW-ZapperZapper is the Math Academy’s go-to training station for Blasters wanting to practice their talents at Red Alert missions. To beat this game, you must be sharp with your mind and your reflexes. Use mental math to quickly determine which asteroids are projected for collision with Spaceport, and then use your arrow keys and spacebar to stop them in their tracks. The International Spaceport could always use stronger and wiser Cadets, so make sure to complete this week’s Blaster Mission and get some extra preparation for rapidly subtracting numbers. http://budurl.me/MBGoTW15

Another math drill based app, space Zapper allows your kids’ Blasters to help defend the Space Port by blowing through approaching asteroids and using their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills! The app includes 20 different lessons, so your kids can keep learning while also practicing at levels they’ve already mastered.

Get Credits for Learning!

Learning is not only good for a Blaster’s brain, it’s good for a Blaster’s wallet, too! Now, when your children play math games in Math Blaster they will earn credits, which they can use to buy cool new items like furniture for their pod or color kits for their monster mutts. As they move through the levels of each game they play, their credit earnings increase. So the higher they go, the more credits they will receive. Below are our top four favorite places to earn credits and we think your children will agree!

Can your kids beat the clock in the fast-paced game of Bolt Cruncher? They must energize the robots before it’s too late! They’ll need to match fractions to other equal fractions, convert fractions to percentages and decimals, or match real life objects to their correct 3D shape.

When playing HyperBlast Training, your children have to avoid or destroy obstacles to get points. At the end of each round, they must face the math monster and select the correct answers to addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division equations. The more equations they solve correctly, the more blasts they earn!

Oozami teaches place values and counting money. Your kids have to turn on the switches to the correct answers, while trying not to plummet into the ooze below.

In Zapper Turret Training your children will save the universe from asteroids! This game requires them to work out different addition, subtraction, multiplication or division problems and shoot down the asteroid with the correct solution.

After your kids have thoroughly worked their brains to earn so many credits, they can go to the My Pod Store or Monster Mutt Accessories. They’ll discover the benefits of working hard as they pick out exciting new gizmos and gadgets! Each bed, lamp, and color kit they buy will represent a newly acquired math skill.

Learning addition let this Blaster add furniture like this bed to his pod!

Encourage your children to play a game in Math Blaster today and everyone will win! You’ll be happy they’re learning and your kids will be happy they’re earning!
