“The KimbaJacks Maths Puzzle Games is a complete suite of exciting scientific tools for
fundamentally developing skills in Mathematics, Science, Engineering and Technology.
An individual that is exposed to the use of the suite can develop new skills and build
critical thinking using the combination of numbers, geometric shapes and bright colours.
It is a well-known fact that games and puzzles are innovative pedagogies for developing
communicative skills and critical thinking. They serve as powerful tools for active learning
that fosters different learning styles.
The intrinsic benefits of using games and puzzles for learning are not limited to promoting
communicative competence, increasing learning inspiration, reducing learning anxiety,
encouraging creativity, building critical thinking, developing problem solving competence,
they also include fostering participatory attitudes of students in a student-centred environment
The novelty of the KimbaJacks Maths Puzzle Games suite is particularly amazing and it can be
highly effective in boosting active learning by making learning a fun. I strongly recommend the
use of the KimbaJacks Maths Puzzle Games suite for teaching of difficult subjects such as
Mathematics, Science, Engineering and Technology in schools. The suite can be a very useful
tool for teaching foundation programmes in the university.”
