Since 2011, proficiency in fourth grade mathematics has been in decline. As a result, the team wanted to make a game that improves mathematical proficiency by reinforcing a student's ability to calculate using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. With inspiration from Google's dinosaur minigame, the team created an infinite runner that helps students practice mathematical operations.
What it does
An elementary school student can play the game to practice their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills.
How I built it
The team used Unity and GitHub to make the game. Art was made using a combination of MS Paint and GIMP, and music was made using a combination of LMMS and Bfxr
Challenges I ran into
Our biggest challenges included getting the input field and warp system functioning.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
After 24 hours, it is a functioning product. Making a video game takes time, so having a presentable product after 24 hours is something to be proud of.
What I learned
I learned about input fields and designing UI using Unity.
What's next for Math Ninja
Hopefully, the warp system can be refined. Also, we still need to implement the obstacle patterns and the scoring system. Improved UI and music design can help the game appear more presentable.
