Questimate! by Motion Math
Questimate! Is the first game where players create their own questions.
The Problem: Estimation and measurement are crucial math skills, but very difficult to teach on the chalkboard; skillful estimation comes from lots of practice with real world problems. A fun learning game to facilitate engaged practice.
Main Insight; Kids love being in control, and they love to create. These games empower children to decide what they will learn.
Solution: The first game where players make their own questions. Questimate’s unique game mechanic allows players to choose between various phases to formulate a question, following their own curiosity. This process of creation increases the player’s engagement, their desire to estimate correctly, and their interest in exploring the real answer.
Questimate! Contains four diverse quests covering animals, geography, history and concept of speed. There are thousands of fascinating questions to create, estimate, share and explore. Two other noteworthy features that make Questimate! Fun for the whole family:
*Three different forms of answer entry; a slider, a calculator, and a “picture pincher” that allows the player to directly manipulate the relative sizes of pictures.
* By touching the “Really?!” button, players can learn more about an answer or see the web source for information.
