How it started

I assume that many parents have been sitting with their children making dull homework.

When my bonus daughter was in second grade, I realized that it was much more fun if we played games that practiced the skills that students otherwise must exercise by writing sums in their math books.

The idea for Mingo was born and I started cutting and pasting small pieces of paper with numbers so that we could play the game for real. One day when I was with bonus daughter to school, we took the game and introduced it to the class who then used it for math lessons.

A year later, when the children were playing games on my and my husband’s cell phones it struck me that this particular game would do extremely well in an “app version”. A simple and fun way to practice math!

In order to create Mingo and other apps for fun and stimulating learning we have formed Mingo Education .
