How does Manic Math work?

You can get the full value of Manic Math with 4 easy steps.

1: Select

Select one of the class topics and watch Manic Math create a quiz for you! We currently cover introductory arithmetic, orders of operations and fractions with new content being added regularly.

2: Host

Start the quiz and put your screen up on the projector. Students will be able to join quickly and easily. This encourages students to look up, keeps them on the edge of their seats and promotes discussion.

3: Play

Enjoy the transformation of your classroom into a gameshow with students discussing and playing! Games never exceed 5 minutes and you can easily play another game if you have more time.

4: Practice

Students can engage with the exact same topic on their own. In SOLO mode, they'll be able to work through the same content in a structured, self-paced approach. Students are also rewarded with stickers that they can show off in CLASS mode when you play next! (These stickers are highly coveted amongst all ages.)

Boosting student confidence

In 2018, we teamed up with the innovative maths department at St Luke’s Anglican School in Bundaberg Queensland to test the first version of Manic Math with their students in grades 9, 10 and 11.

Students used Manic Math over a term working through the SOLO mode content at their own pace. The result was 50% students self-reporting an improvement in their confidence as a result of using Manic Math.
