Once upon a time there was a boy in Odense (Denmark) and a girl in Albuquerque (New Mexico), and each grew up with good grades in math.
(Insert standard love story here.)
One day, the girl, now a mom, said, "My students do not have solid math fundamentals."
Then her son said, "I need help with my addition homework."
(Actually, this 1st grader said, "I don't want to do my homework. What are we having for desert?")
So the boy, now the dad, said, "I can make an app for the both of you!"
And he got to work in his secret laboratory which also served as the dining room table.
Thus, the Mighty Minute was created.
Part educational and part brain game, this power-filled app challenges all- from the first grader to the finance major.
As an educational tool, the mom could better tutor students with fun math games and the son quickly honed his skills learned in the classroom
(and have time to enjoy dessert). As a brain game, the Mighty Minute Power Levels increase in difficulty to really get those synapses synapsing and
keep the mental muscle strong.
And so the boy/dad and girl/mom continued developing the Mighty Minute into a series of educational brain games for students, schools, parents,
professionals, and you!
The Mighty Minute is a fun and exciting way to help children achieve mastery of their basic math facts!
This app allows them to work independently towards their goal and feel that sense accomplishment when a level is completed.
My 1st graders want to keep working at the challenge of solving the problems before the time runs out!
