Addition is a 3-minute timed drill for kids practicing their addition facts. Students click numbers to solve equations. Adjust the level for harder problems, or for word-based addition. Children who need help can watch the dog jump along the number line to calculate the right answer.
This app makes addition fun. Kids try to achieve better, higher scores. Parents and teachers see that higher scores require quick, accurate answers. The user experience is so simple, children know intuitively what to do: just enter your name, click Go and click the correct answers. The game is intended for children who know their numbers and have a basic understanding of how to add them. No other reading skills are needed. Addition's large numbers and buttons are accessible by kids with physical movement challenges.
For families or schools with multiple students, scores are saved per student, so kids can compete against their own previous scores, not someone else's.
In the info screen, accessible by clicking the blue info button, teachers can turn on negative numbers for students studying the addition of negative numbers.
Please note, the dog eventually shows students the correct answer for each question if the student understands how number lines work. This is intentional. However, the student will only be able to beat previous high scores by answering more quickly than the dog can jump. Once the student knows the math facts, the dog becomes irrelevant.
Ratings and Reviews
Very, Very educational!!
A good start
For my son to enjoy math at all, this app must be doing something right. It's quick, it's easy and it does what it says it does with an interface that is enjoyable for him. I love that you can level up for more diffuculty, the only problem that i have noticed so far is that the pointer is a bit touchy. It seems like you have this big pointer and he has to navigate the very pointed end to the very center of the paw print. Give the kids a bit of room to click, especially when they are going for speed! We liked it so much that we just bought the Subtraction App!
Excellent Intro to Math!
My 6 year old loves this simple and effective game. The "light" went on quickly for her with the help of the hopping dog. The update to delay the hop until after a guess is excellent.
Well done- Keep it coming!
