Inspiration

Students are more willing to learn if they are engaged in a competitive environment. By gamification they will naturally get better at mental math by practicing with their friends.

What it does

Our application provides a fun alternative to learning. The player has to solve a math problem to be able to place a spot on a tic-tac-toe space.

How we built it

We used Unity and split the work by skill set to be as efficient as possible.

Challenges we ran into

One of the biggest challenges we faced was Google's API. Our goal was to utilize the Google Vision API to recognize the number drawn on screen so we could validate the answer. Unfortunately we discovered a bug with the API that didn't allow it to recognize single characters in an image.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of being able to handle challenges that we were not expecting. There were a lot of situations where the whole team was stumped and with our hard work and commitment, we were able to overcome seemingly impossible challenges.

What we learned

Some Team Members learned how to use a new game engine (Unity). We also learned and attempted to incorporate Google Vision.

What's next for MathemaTIC-TAC-TOE

We would like to incorporate the multiplayer feature so that kids can play with their friends. We would also want to fix the bugs and polish the UI
