MathGirl Games are developed by Mother and daughter MathGirls, Lynn and Molly Rasmussen and programmer Robert Tegel Bonifacio of Code Robert LLC.
“Teaching math facts has been a hobby for 30 years. Math anxiety is a miserable thing for bright children. I want to eliminate that awful feeling from every child’s experience. I have discovered that there are a few missing steps in the math education of people who think they are ‘bad at math.’ No child leaves my kitchen without being asked, ‘What’s 8 times 7?’ We ‘play numbers’ until the answer is easy.”
“In the 1980s, when my children were small, I tried to build math cards and games but they simply didn’t work. Apps provide interactivity and instant feedback. Now all kids can experience my kitchen methods.”
From the designer, Molly Rasmussen:
“Games for girls can be cute and fun. Why can’t math be cute and fun too? Too many math games are like homework. Math Games can look and play like real games. After graduating from Cornell University, I designed swimwear in Los Angeles for 7 years, including the Hannah Montana brand. I love the shift to education and app development. We’re taking the current trends in design and color, and current trends in gaming, to build a new way to teach math, one that appeals to girls’ senses and how girls like to play.”
From both of us:
It’s fun to work as a mother-daughter team, to be able to work long distance, and to be able to make a difference in people’s lives.
