About

Study is boring!?!

It's no secret that most kids find studying boring. At first we all love going to school, but later on we get bitterly disappointed. Children have a hard time focusing on things that aren't fun for them. They easily get distracted and jump from one task to the next. But, we know that kids love to play. All children love to play. So we decided why not make the process of studying math like a game?

Hi Kiсkstarter!


And so we decided to put all the money, experience, knowledge, power and energy we had to create a unique math game. Having analyzed the needs of children and their parents we understand that this is more than a game - it is a journey.

This is LocaMath!

LocaMath is a unique interactive math app for elementary and middle school children. It completely covers the topics which are studied by kids at this age. It helps the child learn to perform simple math calculations without having to write them down and to solve routine math problems.

The first part of the series is called “Motion problems”. They are one of the main types of problems based on multiplication. Having acquired the skill of quick and effective motion problem solving the child will find it much easier to solve other types of problems like “work problems” and “money problems”.

What's new in this idea?

We want to turn something boring like studying math into something fun and engaging. We want to turn the whole process into a game.

The game will offer online olympiads, beautiful graphics and multiple solutions to problems. The app uses artificial intelligence that can check the solutions and compile statistics for the parents. This game provides visual aid in the form of animations which help the child to over come any difficulties in understanding the material. This game is up to the standards of the modern world, it will use social networks and rating systems (city, country, world) to show the child his/her level and motivate him/her to do even better. The new knowledge and skills that the children acquire is all that's necessary to unlock new levels, the parents won't have to spend a dime. 

Why kids will love LocaMath?

+ This is a fun game not just a boring old textbook

+ It has amusing animations and 800 problems (4 levels)

+ It provides children with an opportunity to share their success

+ It has student rating systems (city, country, world)

+ It is based on a gamified system created to motivate children (points, ratings, awards)

+ Levels and avatars are sold for all the point that the child earns while successfully solving math problems in LocaMath

+ Online Competition.

Warning!!! Our technology is unique:

Electronic textbooks usually only check the child's final answer,  but this is not enough! We give the child an opportunity to explore all the possible solutions. The game checks not only the answer but all the steps that the child took to solve the problem. Another feature which makes LocaMath stand-out among other apps is it's special system of mailing the parents the results and progress of their children: 

-How much time the child spent on math

-The progress he/she made during this time span.

-What was the most difficult parts for your child. 

-What mistakes the child made when solving problems and what material he/she needs help with.

What we have done now?

For now we have developed 800 motion problems, localized the app into 4 languages, prepared beautiful graphics and animations, so the child can better understand what motion is. We wrote the music and started to develop the app, but our budget is starting to run low and now we ask for your help!

Our main goal. And why do we need money?

The first and foremost important is the software, this is a game with artificial intelligence and it requires a lot of funding. Based on this we want to set up a reliable system of ratings, points and prizes to make sure no difficulties or glitches arise and that our olympiads take place without any problems. At the same time we want to create 2 more levels and make the graphics for another 400 problems. After that, we will localize the game into 4 more languages (French, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese). After those have been tested will send them out to all those who support us on kick starter. The remaining part of the money will go to cover taxes and fees intermediaries.

We have a well-worked out plan....

We only need time, effort and your support!

LocaMath - ein einzigartiges Mathematik-Spiel für Schulkinder, von liebevollen Müttern, kompetenten Lehrern und Designern entworfen. Das Ziel unseres Projektes - den Lernprozess für Kinder interessanter zu gestalten! Wir lieben Kinder und wünschen uns, dass die Kindheit mit einzigartigen Erlebnissen erfüllt und von schönen Ereignissen geprägt wird.

Es un juego matemático extraordinario interactivo para la escuela general básica y el bachillerato creado por las cariñosas madres,para los profesores progresistas y diseñadores.El objetivo de nuestro proyecto es convertir el proceso de la enseñanza en algo muy interesante. Amamos mucho a nuestros niños y queremos que su infancia se llenara de ilusiones.

Risks and challenges

We are all people and work with people sometimes slows our own work.
The design of a game has some obvious risks, such as:

- The delayed release of the game
- Make a bad game and poor quality
- Do not make the game at all

Rest assured, we will bring the project to the final and each of you get what you pay for, because:

+ We will never give up and always go to the end
+ We work exclusively with professionals
+ This is our dream. The project, in which we have invested not only money, but also a part of me.

Thank you for believing in us!
