Education is extremely important and especially for kids who are still developing their basic skills. When it comes to school, many kids dislike the idea of doing homework and solving math problems, but kids love to play games. Introducing Excel Beyond, a game where you solve math questions to earn points towards the growth of your tree and your education.
What it does
Excel Beyond is an Android app that produces short math problems for children of different grades levels from K-6. The math problems that kids have to solve can be simply numbers to be added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided. As difficulty increases, math problems will grow in difficulty with larger numbers, pictures, and worded problems. With each question that the child finishes, they accumulate points which contribute to the overall growth of a plant that they can view in the app.
How I built it
I built Excel Beyond using Android Studios. I wrote the backend using Java. The stages of growth of the plant was obtained from sprite images found online.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud that I could make a functioning game that a kid would be able to play on their android device.
What's next for Excel Beyond
The next steps for Excel Beyond is to create a login system with usernames and passwords and a scoreboard for the kids to compete with one another.
