Tutorial

Setup

MathFloats opens to the game screen. Tap the menu icon in the top right corner and select 'Settings' to set the operators and range for your game:

That's it! MathFloats will return to the game screen with your preferences set.

Please note: the range of numbers has a slightly different meaning for different operators. For addition and multiplication, both of the operands will be within the chosen range. For subtraction and division, one of the operands and the solution will be within the chosen range.

Game Play

Tap 'Start' at the bottom of the screen to begin. You are presented with a math problem and four possible solutions. Tap the solution you think is correct.

Levels

There are five levels of game play, each with ten problems. The difficulty of the problems remains the same, but time alotted to solve them grows progressively shorter:

Game Completion

There are three ways to end a game:

Weighted Scores

MathFloats keeps track of both your raw score and a weighted score.

The raw score is calculated by awarding 2 points for each problem solved correctly when it first appears and 1 point for each problem solved correctly after it has floated up. With five levels and ten problems per level, the maximum raw score is 100 points.

The weighted score takes into account the difficulty of the game setup, including the operators and the range of numbers chosen. The maximum weighted score of 999 is achieved by selecting division only with a full range of numbers from 0 to 99 and solving all problems correctly when first presented.

Stats Screen

MathFloats keeps track of all your high scoring games. To view these statistics, tap the menu icon in the top right corner and select 'Stats'.

Your weighted overall high score appears at the top. You may tap on this score to view details below. You may also use the back and next buttons to flip through details of high scores you have earned for different combinations of operators and ranges. Finally, you may clear all high scores by tapping the 'Clear All Scores' button below the high score details.

To return to the main game screen, either use your device's back button or click on the bar at the top of the screen where the logo is located.

About Screen

The About screen is reached by tapping the menu icon in the top right corner and selecting 'About'. This screen provides access to this tutorial and an online contact form where you can send questions or comments to MathFloats's support team.

It also tells you a little bit about WannaJava, the company that has made MathFloats available.
