Simple math practice for young'ns with a built in sticker chart

Making math fun for kids is no easy task. Incentivize them with a digital sticker chart in Marc Thomas' Math Doodle.

Enter in the player's name and gender to create a profile. Specify difficulty level and type of operation desired to practice (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, times table, or mixed mode), then start the game. Enough correct answers will be rewarded with a sticker to place on the chart, which could seem like small motivation - but it was sufficient to keep me, a fully grown adult, playing for four rounds in a row, so.

The one small complaint I have is that the boys' stickers are WAY cooler than the girls': think awesome dinosaurs versus little pink hearts. Last time I checked, I was both female and a pterodactyl-lover, so it would be nice to be able to choose from sticker collections rather than sort them by gender stereotypes.

That said, I really like Marc Thomas' Math Doodle. It's super simple and very well executed, and I can definitely imagine it working as effective math practice for kids.

Developer's original description available here
Math Doodle is a math game designed for young kids. Your children can have fun with simple math and earn stickers the more questions they get right which can then be stuck onto their own sticker chart.

This game was designed with my daughter and uses her voice for encouragement. It supports up to 4 players and the stickers are tailored to whether it is a boy or girl playing.

The player can select addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. There is also a separate times table game and mixed mode.

There are 3 difficulty levels, easy, medium and hard but please bare in mind this is aimed at young children so the sums won't be that hard.

This game is written using the AndEngine framework.

Recently changed in this version

After a number of requests I have made the medium and hard levels more difficult. I will be taking this further in future versions to make this configurable. Any feedback you want to give me please email me at the address provided.

The application should no longer vibrate when haptic feedback is disabled on your device.

    The ease of answering an equation, coupled with the use of stickers, makes this a great learning app for my kid.
