About this project

I created Mathopoly and it has been used in my classrooms since 2003, but was only "released" to the public in early 2011. Since that time, classrooms around North America and overseas have used it as part of their math instruction. The question very early on was "Do you have an App for this? If you did, that would be awesome!".

This has now become a major focus for myself. Create Mathopoly for iOS and Android devices and have this dynamic Math game be accessible in even more classrooms around the world that use electronic devices as part of their instruction.

I am raising funds so that I can create a digital version of Mathopoly to be used in classrooms or individually on hand held devices. I am a creative teacher, one with a passion for teaching different ways to learn concepts. However, that being said, I do not have the expertise needed to create a digital version myself. This responsibility will go to a company who's track record speaks for itself, and who I trust will create the digital version that resembles the Mathopoly Board version and all of it's engagement qualities. I have researched many companies both domestic and overseas, and have a great understanding of what they can potentially do.

Risks and challenges

The biggest hurdle I face is finding the right company, who will capture the uniqueness and engagement of Mathopoly from Board Game to iOS and Android version. I like a finished product that one can be proud of, if there is a delay, it may come in the form of myself not being satisfied in what has been produced. To me this isn't just a game, it's a learning tool, and while it still needs to remain fun, it cannot lose its Mathematical structure and focus.
