Ellie's Games: Math Duel

Math Duel is a split screen mathematics game that pits two players against each other in a head-to-head duel. Designed specifically for the iPad, this game is highly entertaining to both girls. (ages 8 and 11). Each side can be set according to their abilities, and the girls love to challenge each other to see who will win.

Math Duel features a split screen interface and completely customizable options including: number of digits per equation, addition on/off, subtraction on/off, divison on/off, and multiplication on/off. Math Duel also has scorekeeping, which is a great feature.

NOTE: In Math Duel, decimals are rounded down. For example:

Real Life:
2 / 3 = 0.6

In Game:
2 / 3 = 0

This should be evaluated in game as "three goes into two zero times"

How to Play: Adjust the settings for both players to ensure an equal playing field. Adults should enable more operations and digits if playing young children. Try to solve the math problem before your opponent!
