The Great Sushi Monster Contest!
By Tyler on April 28th, 2012
This week has been the week of Sushi Monster here at Scholastic.
In case you missed it, Sushi Monster is a new iPad app we released about a week ago that’s taking the Apple app store by storm. Last I checked, it was higher on the top free app list than Angry Birds! (We’ve even been sporting these killer t-shirts!) We’re so thrilled by it’s success that we’ve decided to give away something VERY SPECIAL to an educator (or anyone with a “school” in his or her life). We’re giving away FASTT Math Next Generation, a sophisticated new technology program for schools that’s designed to help students become “fluent” with their math facts.
The (SHORT) story behind Sushi Monster is that it was originally created as one of 18 new games for FASTT Math Next Generation. These games help kids practice and master addition, subtraction, multiplication and division so their brains are primed for higher order math. And they were created by experts in educational game design — people who know how to make games addicting and how to make them maximize learning.
And so, we decided to turn the Sushi Monster game into a free app that anyone (with an iPad) can use.
The winner, picked at random next Wednesday (May 2), will win FASTT Math for his or her school, or a school of his or her choice.
