General
Do you have an Android app?
Not yet, but we're working on it right now. The release is planned for this summer.
Curriculum
Which standards are you aligned with?
Our program is for children aged 3-7 years and so starts to engage kids quite early. We took into consideration the Common core standards. And at least half of our tasks focus on representing, relating and operating on whole numbers and sets of objects, number line, recognizing shapes in various orientations and using spatial relations etc.


We also have a wide range of tasks that cover topics beyond the standard curriculum. They help kids get acquainted with schemes, logical operators, algorithms, flowcharts, complex patterns and more. Kids learn to use their logical reasoning, experiment and find their own solutions as they become proficient with mathematical content and concepts.
Are these games all about math? Many of them do not include any numbers.
We are focused on math in a broad sense. Besides numeracy, we cover logical thinking, geometry and spatial skills, algorithms and much more. These are vital skills that form the basis for further learning in various fields.

Our curriculum and methods are based on modern research in mathematical education. Developing a strong foundation in early math skills is important for children's further educational success (Duncan et al., 2007). And this is true not only for numeracy skills and counting.

There is accumulating knowledge on the importance of spatial skills to the STEM domains (J.Wai et al., 2009) and the relation between spatial skills and science achievement (Hodgkiss A et al, 2018). And patterning is believed to be a good predictor of math knowledge (Zippert et al., 2019).
Purchases & Refunds
Can I share the subscription via App Store Family Sharing?
Unfortunately, Apple does not support the Family sharing of the in-app purchases including subscriptions. You can learn more about it here: https://support.apple.com/HT203046.

However, you can create an account in our app and use it from any device. The subscription will be linked to your account.
How do I cancel my subscription?
  • Go to your Settings > Your Name > iTunes & App Store

  • Tap your Apple ID at the top of the screen and choose 'View Apple ID'

  • Tap Subscriptions > Funexpected Math!

  • Cancel the Subscription
How do I get a refund?
As Apple handles all payments for our app, you'll need to appeal directly to them for a refund. You can learn how to do it here. We wish we could be of more assistance and are terribly sorry for the inconvenience.
Will I be charged after the end of my trial period?
No, you will not. We wanted to give you a feel of the Funexpected Math world and decided to give a 48 hours trial to everyone. No paid subscription follows it automatically. If you're having fun and want to continue after the trial ends, you can try out a subscription for a month, or save on an annual subscription.
Gameplay
What about the difficulty of the tasks? I can't see what age they are for.
Each mini-game takes into account the previous experience of the player and adjusts its difficulty based on factors such as time spent, use of hints and failures etc. The more the kid plays, the better the game adapts. We also use the age of the child to adjust how fast the level of difficulty progresses from the beginning of the game.
I have to help my child at the beginning. Are the games too difficult?
This is absolutely fine! Kids are very different, even if they are of the same age.

Some kids are fluent in counting aged 4 but have difficulty matching an object with its shape or scheme. Other kids are not so good at numeracy but show outstanding results in geometry and spatial tasks.

Often kids need little help at the very beginning and start playing on their own soon.
Are there any games for 2,3-year-olds?
Funexpected was developed for kids aged 3-7 but there's no reason why your kids can't start playing some of the games even a bit earlier. Parents' help will be needed at the beginning but then children can play by themselves. If the tasks are too complex, you can always lower the level via the Parents menu (see the description of each mini-game).

Our younger players prefer the following games: Japan.Monkey, Japan.Samurai, Japan.Flowers, Japan.Flies, Egypt.Tangram, Egypt.Gods, Egypt.Geoboard
