Math Frogger

Educational Value:
Fun Factor:
Skills:Subtraction, Addition, Algebra, Division, Multiplication

What we like best:

Racing to reach the princess adds an exciting element of urgency to the game, and the way the sums are presented helps kids get used to using a calculator.

What you should know:

Girls may find this app more appealing than boys, since the aim of the game is to find—and kiss—a pretty pink princess. Although the game is fun, there isn’t much variety.
Full Review:

The frog princess needs help—and it’ll take little brainiacs who can solve sums and review math facts to save her! Kids must race each other (or the computer) to be the first to reach the pink amphibian princess.

The race itself is the most exciting part of the app, since math problems offer little in the way of variety. Choose from addition, subtraction, multiplication or division in the settings menu, and then start the game to take turns trying to answer the equations. On each turn a player is presented with two choices—two lily pads, each with a different number, appear in front of the frog. In a “Jeopardy” style format, the number on the lily pad represents the answer to a sum. Children choose the lily pad they want to hop to, and a calculator pops up for them to solve the sum.

Straightforward, simple game play and an engaging plot line make this beautifully-illustrated app a winner for the second grade set.
