Hi, we are Oefenweb. We make web applications for adaptive testing, like Math Garden.
You can enter your gameworld with your username and password. In this short manual you can read more about how to work with Math Garden.
1. Two Gardens: Base garden and Bonus garden
You have two gardens, a base garden and a bonus garden. You start off with the Base garden, but if you look after your Base garden well then you can play different games in the Bonus garden. You do this by making sure you don’t have any witherd plants or watering cans, so make sure you practise in the Base garden regularly.
1.a Determine the difficulty level of the sums
In Math Garden you can choose whether the sums are easy, average or difficult.
The more difficult the sum, the more coins you get for correct answers. On the average level you can earn a maximum of 20 coins.
2. Explaining your Math Garden
2.a The garden
Try to make all of the plants in your garden grow by playing the math games. When your performance improves, your plants will grow. Has it been longer than a week since you last played? A watering can will appear and your plants will slowly wither. To make your plant grow again, play an entire game of 15 sums.
2.b New plants
Your first plant is the addition game. If your addition score is high enough, the plant for the subtraction game will become available. If you score high enough again, you can then play the multiplication game. Each time you score high enough, you will gain an extra plant. But, be careful! If you don’t keep playing all of the games your plants begin to wither, the plants you have earned will disappear.
2.c The math tests
Try to win as many coins as possible. Solve the sums quickly and correctly. If your answer is wrong, you will lose coins. If you really don’t know the answer to a sum, you can click the ‘?’, and you won’t lose any coins. You will find the coins you’ve won so far in the bag in the corner of the screen.
You can quit at any time after giving an answer by clicking STOP.
If you complete 15 sums in one go you get a BONUS of 25 coins!
You can choose the answer you think is correct by clicking on it.
For multiplication and division, you can answer by clicking the answer on the keyboard. When you click Enter, your answer will be sent.
2.d The trophy case
With the coins you’ve earned, you can buy all kinds of trophies on the trophy case page. If you want to buy a cup for example, you will need to save enough coins first. By clicking your trophy in the trophy case, you can trade your trophy back for coins.
