What's the math in this game?

The memory challenge in this game supports children’s executive function skills. Children need to remember where they saw a particular card (working memory) and they also need to take turns (inhibitory control). Say the shapes out loud after every card flip. For example, “This is a square card. And this is a square card. That's a match!”
