cZeus: a new free app making Maths social

Dr Shohreh Blank

We urgently need to change attitudes to make Maths trendy. To help bring about this change, I set out to create an engaging and entertaining app, cZeus Maths Challenger, for children to practise mental arithmetic whilst developing a better understanding of the underlying Maths. I am dedicated to increasing the interest in Mathematics amongst students and would love to work with teachers and schools to run fun and educational Maths competitions.

Children often have it in their heads that learning Maths is dull. To challenge this notion, I created cZeus Maths Challenger: an innovative new app designed for all ages to make Maths fun.

cZeus supports teaching within schools and beyond, encouraging students to engage and build a social connection through Mathematics. The result is an app that not only facilitates the practice of Maths skills like addition, times tables and factorisation, but which also helps to improve students’ personal development and soft skills such as problem-solving.

This app bridges the gap between classroom learning and everyday Maths by increasing students’ confidence to apply skills outside of lessons. Students can challenge their parents, family members and friends outside school to a cZeus tournament, eliminating children’s lack of engagement with Maths by exercising logic in an entertaining and competitive environment.

Ray Turner, Professor of Theoretical Computer Science at Essex University, said: “cZeus puzzles offer a great alternative way for practising basic numeracy skills, as well as learning more complicated mathematical concepts such as algebra and basic number theory.”

Jon Greenman, Professor of Mathematics at Stirling University, said: “cZeus is a thoroughly absorbing game based on a smart idea and has the potential to take the player further along the path to a deeper appreciation and enjoyment of Mathematics.”

cZeus Maths Challenger has six difficulty classes to cater to students of all abilities. Players can unlock new levels as well as the chance to challenge each other in competitions. These features enable students to continuously improve their performance in agility and accuracy with numbers.

Ultimately, if students engage with Maths in a fun environment, they are more likely to be engaged and active learners - good news for teachers!

Download cZeus for free on IOS and Android. For a chance to WIN an iPad 9.7 head to cZeus Maths Challenger Facebook to enter our competition.
