A game designed to promote basic counting and number recognition. Ah Chute also helps children begin to organize numbers into groups of 5 and recognize “5 families” (e.g. 1 & 4, 2 & 3, 1 & 2 & 2, etc.).
Players press a Roll 'em button to find out how many chips to play. Then, the players take turns dragging chips from their stack of tiles to their oval holding areas. After both players have moved their chips to the holding area, the top will come off the chutes. Players then drag the chips to the top of the chutes and drop them. The goal is to have your chip be on the top of the chutes. The player with the most chips at the top of a chute wins. The iPad versions includes an option to use multi-value chips.
Designed as part of the NumberSense program at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL.
What's New in Version 1.5.0
• Fixed an anomoly where it was possible to reset a turn and display the “Roll ‘em “ button again without moving any chips into the chutes. In other words... if you didn’t like your roll, you could get a new one. Yes, a couple of kindergarten students figured this out! I’m impressed.
• The option to use multi-value chips has been removed from the iPod/iPhone version.
• Minor tweaks. Updated interface.
