New math-teaching methods are rarely designed even though it is clearly a difficult subject for children to grasp. With the new debate over why there is such a disparity between women and men in STEM industries, 'Osmo' decided to create a game that helps children (specifically girls) learn and love math.

'Numbers' is a tablet-connected game that allows kids to use tangible smart tiles to solve math equations. Emphasizing that there is not only one way of solving things, the game allows kids to use any method they like to reach a displayed integer. This concept helps different kinds of thinkers succeed, especially creative thinkers who often stray from math and science from a young age.

With Numbers' under-the-sea theme, computer game design and tangible math-teaching method, this game helps all kids understand and enjoy practicing math.
