Hot Potato Algebra: Math Learning Game

This is a game to help you practice your Algebra! Great for students currently learning, or for adults who want to brush up, or just to enjoy a quick game. Once you start, you’ll have a hard time putting the device down!

The main mode is “Potato” mode, based on the classic game of “Hot Potato”. You play with up to 5 friends and the goal is to answer Algebra questions as quickly as possible, because as you play, there is an invisible timer counting down and as soon as it runs out, the current player is eliminated. If you answer a question incorrectly, five seconds is taken off the timer and you must answer the question again until you get it right. The goal is to be the last player standing.

A newly added configuration page allows you to set the time length of the game.

The app contains two other modes: Test mode and Vs. mode. In Test mode, you answer a series of Algebra questions. Each time you get a question right, the next question is a little harder. Each time you get a question wrong, the next question is a little easier. Each question you answer correctly, you are awarded points based on how difficult it was. The goal is to maximize the points you can earn within the chosen time limit.

In Versus mode, you again attempt to maximize your score, except this time you are competing with up to five friends. After inputting the names of you and your friends, you take turns answering Algebra questions which again get harder as you answer them right and easier if you answer them wrong. The goal is to have the highest number of points when the time runs out.
