Matematikhaven is the danish version of the successful dutch learning environment Rekentuin, which can be used to train and track math skills. In Matematikhaven, each math operation is represented by a different game plant that grows as math ability improves. Children must maintain their garden, because if they do not play in it regularly, the plants will wither. In this way, Matematikhaven stimulates users to practice on a weekly basis.
