VOGO Voice RATING 4.5/5
The Multiplication Quiz developed by Joe Mirmina is crafted with the simple idea to help kids learn one of the basic math functions. With this skill, Alexa in the guise of a tutor ushers kids into the enticing world of numbers to practice multiplication. Most often kids don’t get the opportunity to overcome the challenges they face while learning maths. Yet this voice app seems tuned to the learning interests of kids by rendering it a fun-oriented game format. The motivating aspect of the skill is that it lets kids practice and perfect their fundamental multiplication skills.
Centered around an entertaining quiz, the voice skill allows kids to set their standard of learning and score their way up. One of its unique highlights is that users can freely set an acceptable number range as well as fix the number of questions they would like to take up during the quiz. The player’s control over the quiz to decide what and how much to play allows them to personalize the game which is indeed a positive tinged with a ‘wow’ factor. The maximum number of questions that kids can explore while playing the game is limited to 20. On the sidelines, Alexa updates the scores after each round by calculating the number of correct answers given by the user. To pep up the players’ spirits, the voice app tosses each question followed by an 8-second timer to quicken their thinking and level up their cognitive processes. For kids who miss out on responding within 8 seconds, the voice app allows them to answer soon after the waiting time lapses. Additionally, players can track their performance to practice with fervor. Also, the skill efficiently guides the conversation enabling its users to navigate with the least knock-backs. Well, that being said, there seem to be a few downsides that could let down the enthusiastic learners at times. One of the downsides is the absence of the ‘Repeat’ option which mildly depresses the beneficial aspect of the skill as the players won’t get to hear the questions again even when asked for. The inability to resume from where one left off is yet another negative.
The VOGO Voice team scores this skill 4.5 out of 5 stars based on our rating system. Multiplication quiz with its quotient of fun and math knowledge is set to urge growing minds to explore the exciting world of math facts and figures. So why not try out the skill and see if it offers the amusing learning experience you had anticipated for your kids.
