Math Playground created the Division Derby game to provide horse lovers an exciting way to practice their division facts. Follow these step by step instructions and you’ll be at the starting gate in no time!
To start your game go to Division Derby
The first step is to create a player name for yourself. The name can only contain letters and numbers and there’s a 10 character limit. Click NEXT when you’re done.
At the Multiplayer Lobby you will have the option of joining someone else’s game (click JOIN), creating a game of your own (CREATE GAME), or playing against the computer (PLAY NOW). You can only join another person’s game if you have the password. To create your own game you’ll need to create a password to share with your friends. Then you can race each other!
Choose your horse’s colour. Just click on the colour you want then click Start. Be ready! A 3 – 2 – 1 countdown will begin immediately to start the race. The faster you answer the questions correctly, the faster your horse will run.
When the race is over a Results page will appear. It shows you where you finished, your accuracy percentage, your answer rate, which questions you got wrong (if any) and what the correct answers are for any questions you may have missed.
A PLAY AGAIN button is also on the page so you can start another game once you’ve reviewed the results.
The more you play, the faster and more accurate you’ll become. What a fun way to learn!
