McGraw-Hill’s Addition Top-It game offers a quick and easy way to practice and reinforce basic addition facts (0–10) and number comparisons. This two-player game runs on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

Players score points for correctly finding their sum, identifying the greater sum, and for having the greater sum. The player with the most points at the end of 8 rounds wins! Visual and audio reinforcement of correct and incorrect answers help players master addition facts and comparison skills.

Not Worth Purchasing
This app is not worthwhile and should not be purchased by teachers for classroom use because the same goal of practicing addition facts and comparing numbers can be completed without the app. I do not think the students are effectively being taught the mathematical content because they can easily play the game with only one player actually doing the work and points can be received without earning them. While the voice guided play is helpful for directions, there is not much else to do. It is a game of two-card war.
No emphasis on importance of math
This app shows how to play the game very well with the in game voice and it goes away after a while so its not annoying and things are not too obvious, so this is good. However, it does not force my eight year old to be strategic and learn math well in order to win. Winning is only by chance and my eight year old quickly lost interest with it. It was not worth 1.99 for her to have fun for 10 minutes.
Great set of apps!
My son (8) loves this game! He gets to use my phone and "play games." I like the fact that it's not a struggle to get him to practice!
The only con- I'd rather have one app that has all the games instead of one game per app. It just takes up a lot of space.
