Here’s how it works:
To play Math Champ you need this app (the SERVER or HOST) and 1 or more students who have the client installed on their iPad or iPhone.
Class list management
When you first load Math Champ Host - you’ll need to create a class and add your class list to it. This can be done in the settings area and takes just a few minutes. When play begins, students can connect to your class and choose their own own Avatar to be used in play.
Hundreds of quiz questions
The only other thing you need to do before play kicks off is to select some game content - select the grade and the difficulty level and Math Champ will do the rest...
When each quiz starts the HOST will automatically generate a quiz set randomly from thousands of available questions (based on common curricular standards). Math Questions are sent to each client device in real time as play unfolds... Creating a weekly class math quiz has never been easier!
When your class is ready to roll, tap on "Start Quiz". NOTE: If you have a HDMI cable or Apple TV, you can also enhance play by using an external display to show the Math Champ leaderboard during play.
Each question has a set amount of time to be answered, and each correct answer also earns a point of each player. There are bonus points for the fastest answer, and/or the first person to answer 5 questions in a row.
The use of game rewards, along with in-game notifications and colorful characters means that even your least interested math students will get a kick out of competing in Math Champ.
The *** Math Champ ***
When the quiz is complete, the leading scorer is declared as the Math Champ.. that is until someone else can unseat them.
While Math Champ is loads of fun for kids of all ages, teachers can also access valuable student metrics in the class list area, and the host will keep a record of results for all players for every quiz they complete. This data can be easily emailed and exported to a CSV file.
We hope you enjoy using Math Champ - this is the first version of the app, and we plan to release tools to let teachers create their own quiz sets, along with a bunch of other cool features in future versions.

NOTE: Math Champ can not be played with out the Math Champ Client App.
