Got a budding mathematician on your hands? Sums Stacker is the perfect app for math-lovers and reluctant students alike.
The simple, seemingly hand-drawn artwork lends a beautiful touch to straightforward math, while the interesting interface—beginning with a series of three slot machine reels—piques kids’ interest from the first screen. The first reel contains a long list of value representations—the best part of the app. Using anything from fractions to coins to polygons, little learners can tinker around with these virtual manipulatives to get each correct answer. The stunning visuals add an artistic element to each equation. Game play options offer players the option of untimed games or timed rounds, from one to five minutes. Players must arrange randomly selected values—along with corresponding manipulatives—until they add up to the number on the card.
This visually stunning, brightly colored app is a great way to cultivate a love of math for children who prefer art to crunching numbers. Simple game play, modern graphics and an effective approach to addition equal an engaging, one-of-a-kind way to tackle everything from numbers and fractions to coins and Roman numerals; even adults will enjoy learning about new languages, cultures and math all at once.
