CleverWitz Mobile App
Self-Directed Learning Using the Power of Puzzles

Download the FREE app today on iOS or Android and give it a try!

The CleverWitz Mobile App was created to help people gain knowledge in a highly entertaining manner by using Puzzles. This App takes information and fits it into a set of Squares that are randomly displayed on the screen of a Mobile Device. The user is then challenged to arrange the Squares in the correct order. This collection of Squares is called a Puzzle. CleverWitz uses the Power of Puzzles to educate and entertain users.

Puzzles cover a variety of subjects that appeal to a large range of users so you only need to get the Puzzles you want. With over 435 Puzzles and counting, CleverWitz gets smarter every day. Those who use the CleverWitz Mobile App to solve their favorite Puzzles also get smarter each time they do.

When the Free CleverWitz App is first installed, the user receives credits for 5 Free Puzzles and then the user can purchase more Puzzles for as low as 14¢ each. When a Puzzle is being solved, the user can move the Puzzle Squares around the screen by tapping two of the Puzzle Squares to cause them to trade places. Once a Puzzle Square is in the correct location, it is locked and cannot be moved again. The user then repeats these steps as needed to completely solve the Puzzle. There is even a timer that can show improvement on successive attempts at solving each Puzzle.

Puzzles not only test the user, they teach them at the same time because if the user provides an incorrect answer, the Puzzle Square remains unlocked and they learn that their answer was wrong. On the other hand, if the user provides the correct answer, they know it by seeing the Puzzle Square become locked down. Then they can proceed to solve the rest of the Puzzle.

Life of Fred Elementary Math

Life of Fred is a series of math books that break of the old pattern of drill and kill. Instead of nothing but dry exposition and endless drill exercises, they contain fun stories about Fred Gauss, a child prodigy math genius. During his hilarious adventures, he encounters situations that call for solving math problems. Children actually want to read these books.

The stories carry on through the exercises, leading the student through them. Many of the books have a series of quizzes called Bridges every few chapters. Passing a quiz means the student is ready for the next chapter. Some books have all the problem solutions in them, while others have separate answer keys or companions.
