Memory

The memory portion of Bath Math starts with Goombas going in and out of a hot spring (the hot spring starts with zero Goombas inside). Your job is to remember how many Goombas are in the hot spring at the end of the sequence. At the 3rd Difficulty Level, you will only be able to see and keep track of the Goombas going in and out, as steam completely covers your view of the hot spring.

Math Skills

The math portion of Bath Math takes you to a ring puzzle with numbers, an addition symbol (+), and a subtraction symbol (-) in the rings. You have a certain number of seconds to spin and slide the rings to create an equation that equals to the number of Goombas in the hot spring, at the end of the memory portion.
