We need to raise our standards for multiplication games. Such games can change the world, but not if we're satisified with the primtive gameplay and education most of them offer. If we can spend $100 million on Grand Theft Auto, surely we can do better.
That's essentially what we wanted to at Big Brainz—create multiplication games so powerful that they essentially "cure" core multiplication problems, just like vaccines "cured" polio a generation ago. Less than 1/3 of the kids in the US today have genuine mastery of multiplication. That's extra frustrating because the technology exists to help almost all students master their core facts fast and well.
Fortunately, our latest research shows that at least 95% of all students who play Timez Attack walk away with at least 95% perfect recall of all their multiplication fact pairs. In other words, if you want a kid to learn multiplication, just give them Timez Attack, and you're done. That's a huge victory for multiplication games!
