UI design for a STEM tablet game

The goal of the app was to teach math using the science behind baseball. The design had to balance gamification—to keep the middle schoolers’ interest, while teaching complex math calculations. These screen shots are from a video of a player during initial user testing of this game for The Science of Baseball. The coach on the blue box is walking the student through the calculations which the user makes live using the calculator on the right.
