There are two play modes in NumBots.

Story Mode

Story Mode features visual representations, procedural variation, exposure to different calculation strategies all in very carefully sequenced order. Unlocking Levels Story Mode is set out as a series of Stages (Rust, Tin, Iron, etc) containing levels. Rust is the first Stage and level 1 is unlocked, so this is the place for everyone to start. To unlock the next level, players need to earn two stars by showing sufficient proficiency. The levels in Story Mode follow a natural mathematical progression and move children through the game automatically.

Challenge Mode

In Challenge Mode, the emphasis is on rapid responses to essential facts and simple sums, against the clock. Unlocking Challenges Challenge Mode is locked for new users and is unlocked once players reach a certain level on Story Mode. It’s currently set to unlock part way through Tin stage. There are 20 Challenge levels and only the first is unlocked to begin with. To unlock the next Challenge, players must correctly answer 12 questions in a minute. Key Skills Each Challenge focuses on a key skill, as follows:

1 Adding and subtracting 1 or 2 within 10 1 + 3, 8 – 2

2 Number bonds to 5 3 + ? = 5

3 Doubles within 10 (i.e. up to 5+5)

4 + 4 4 Adding and subtracting 1 and 2 within 20 17 + 2, 11 – 1

5 Number bonds to 10 3 + ? = 10

6 Adding and subtracting 10 within 20 3 + 10, 16 – 10

7 Doubles within 20 (i.e. up to 10+10) 8 + 8

8 Adding two 1-digit numbers 5 + 7

9 Number Bonds to 20 8 + ? = 20

10 Subtracting 1-digit numbers within 20 14 – 6

11 Adding and subtracting 1, 2 and 10 within 100 1 + 74, 51 – 2, 38 + 10

12 Adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers to/from multiples of 10 20 + 64, 83 – 20

13 Addition by bridging a multiple of 10 25 + 6, 47 + 5

14 Subtraction by bridging a multiple of 10 25 – 6, 42 – 5

15 Number bonds to 100 52 + ? = 100

16 Using compensation to add and subtract within 100 35 + 19, 35 – 19

17 Adding by partitioning two 2-digit numbers 64 + 25, 10 + 64

18 Subtracting by partitioning two 2-digit numbers 64 – 23, 47 – 31

19 Adding any two 2-digit numbers 63 + 56, 63 + 58

20 Subtracting any two 2-digit numbers 76 – 43, 76 – 4

 

Tracking Progress In Challenge Mode

NumBots keeps a record of players’ first score on each Challenge and their most recent score  for  a rudimentary measure of progress.
