Maths can be stressful enough as it is, especially in the foundational years of a child’s schooling. Osmo’s new Math Wizard series aims to quell the anxiety around maths to prevent delayed learning and understanding of the subject, by allowing kids aged 6-8 to learn at their own pace - experiencing maths through fun, hands-on, narrative- and adventure-driven games, where kids actually learn maths by touching, manipulating, and experimenting how it is used everyday.

The self-paced nature of the Osmo Math Wizard series allows kids to build confidence and understanding in what they are learning, a confidence that they can take to the classroom, homework or maths test. The Math Wizard series acts as your kids’ personal maths tutor, but more affordable and available anytime. .

“Rather than teach kids to memorise formulas and processes, Osmo Math Wizard series offer a hands-on approach, combined with digital learning, to allow kids to think creatively and solve problems on their own--a hallmark of all Osmo games, while compelling narratives and adventures keep them continuously engaged without their realising they are learning,” says Pramod Sharma, CEO of award-winning STEAM brand Osmo.

Math Wizard series helps to alleviate some of this commonly-felt anxiety, by allowing children to learn in a self-paced environment. Targeted hints are built into game play to help struggling learners, nudging them in a way to discover a correct answer, so they do not disengage.

Math Wizard makes adding and subtracting numbers, along with measuring, so fun, approachable, and un-intimidating, which makes a huge difference for a child who may feel apprehensive about math, while lessening anxiety for parents who feel obligated to teach their child math,” adds Sharma. “The games are not perceived as a task or test that puts students in direct competition with peers, too.”

The first two titles in the Math Wizard series, which launch Nov. 20,  2020, are Magical Workshop and Secrets of the Dragons. The series is intended for Years 1-2 (ages 6-8).

Magical Workshop (available for iPad retails AUD$99.99 at and, is an addition and subtraction adventure, where kids brew potions with dragon claws and sparkle dust to master place value, and they continue their quest by counting balloons to help dragons fly! Magical Workshop contains a collection of 4 games and the box contains: 1 Mixing Mat; 2 Sticker Sheets; 1 Spell Book; 28 Counting Cubes; 6 Counting Rods.

Kids will learn:

  • Addition and subtraction within 120
  • Counting and place value
  •  Comparing numbers

Secrets of the Dragons (available for iPad retails AUD$99.99) at and allows kids to learn and master measurement at their own pace, where they explore the Dragon Reserve and its outlying biomes. As dragon scouts, they discover new dragons, measure, and feed them based on their size. They can earn merit badges to become a master scout. The box contains: 1 Dragon Guidebook; 2 Rulers; 62 Food Tokens.

Kids will learn:

  • How to use non-standard units to measure
  • How to use ruler to measure
  • Estimating length
  • Adding lengths

The next two releases in the series will debut in March 2021.
