This engaging math app gets kids fighting bad guys while solving math problems. 6 levels of difficulty so you’ll grow with the app and can use it for several years.
I’d like to see the visual representations of the numbers a bit more clearly (see the strawberries in the above photo) but I do like the graphics and blocks that you throw up to complete the equations. Fun!
Motion Math: Hungry Guppy $3.99
Meant to teach numbers as well as addition, this is a GREAT app for beginners who are learning what adding means because they drag the bubbles to add things together. I love that physical component of putting something together.
This new app would be better free. It’s nothing special and doesn’t provide the extra visual support other apps do for beginning learners.

So, you’ll see the number 5 as well as a 5-cubed rod or 5 dots. Talk about making the abstract concrete! For extra practice and reinforcement, kids can play Monster or Bubble games. Very well done, great for young learners!

Be the hero and save Captain Memo using math skills! I highly recommend this app because it helps kids learn and practice four addition strategies – 1) count all (you must touch each block and count), or 2) count on (start from one number and count up, 3) doubles, and 4) tens. It’s uses visual and kinesthetic modalities to teach the addition strategy and skill practice. Fantastic!

One of the best apps I’ve seen for it’s learning, entertainment value, and beautiful graphics. Tap on the objects to get an equation. For each equation, find the numbers in the screen that make it true. Each house on the path is progressively more challenging.
Crackers and Goo $2.99
Uses patterns to teach well, patterns, but also addition and mental math. I don’t love the visuals – everything seems too small to my eyes. Is that just me?
