### The Factory Guide

The Factory is one of the most unique and exciting math games online that will help you strengthen your math skills while also keeping you entertained from start to finish. It's definitely an addictive game that is going to have you glued to your computer playing game after game. It isn't easy and it will take a lot of quick thinking, good mouse skills and quick keyboard skills but the difficulty level is really what makes this game so much fun. It isn't easy to make math exciting to someone who either doesn't like math or isn't good at it, but this game succeeds on all levels. This is the type of game kids will enjoy playing but adults will enjoy playing as well. While you are using math - increasingly so later in the game - it never feels like a lesson. It's an entertaining and addictive game not just your traditional math game.

The great thing about this particular math game is that it doesn't require tremendous math skills starting out. You can get through the first few levels of The Factory with basic division skills. As long as you know that the sum will be 1 when you divide any number by itself, you'll make it through the first bit of the game fairly well. You still need to have quick fingers on your keyboard to change the numbers on your paddle and decent mouse skills to actually catch the gears but the math itself in the start isn't all that complex. It never really goes beyond the skills the average person has in terms of math, but it does get trickier as the game progresses. The numbers on the gears get bigger meaning more involved equations are needed to reduce them for one. For example, you might get a '49' which you are able to divide by '7' which would leave you with a '7' on the gear. You can them divide the '7' by '7', get '1' and let the gear drop. You may, however, find yourself with a '15' which you'll need to divide by either '3' or '5'. Say you go with '3'. That leaves you with a '5' on the gear. You'll need to quickly switch the number on the paddle to '5' to divide the gear by itself and then allow it to drop. Things get progressively more difficult from there.
