What you should know:
Take a dip in the deep blue with some fun and engaging math practice. This intriguing app is based under the ocean, where bubbles filled with numbers or dots float around in the water, ready to be counted!
Children count and combine the bubbles to feed the fish the specific number he eats. If little math whizzes are quick enough, they'll be rewarded with a chance to change the colors of the character at the end of each game. After enough gameplay, children will start to recognize math facts, or the different combinations of numbers that all add up to the same target. This app also teaches how dots and numbers can both represent the same amount.
While Motion Math: Hungry Guppy focuses on core math skills appropriate for first-graders, it's built so that even preschoolers can play—there's no need to recognize numbers to succeed in the lower levels of the game. In fact, the concept that dots represent a number is a critical building block for basic math, and can give budding mathematicians a head start to mastering basic arithmetic.
