Dear applicant:
It is my great pleasure to inform you that you have been accepted for an apprenticeship in the Research Department at the Ministry of Magic. In this role you will have the enviable opportunity to work under one of the great wizards of our time, Dr. Hieronymous Grout, assisting him with his researches on Applied Arithmancy (with a particular focus on Defense Against the Dark Arts). We have arranged a student room for you in the Ministry dormitory. Please report to the dormitory at your earliest convenience and after you have settled in they will direct you to Dr. Grout's laboratory to start work.

Congratulations and welcome! We expect great things from you.

Very Sincerely Yours,
V. Kermudge

Customer Reviews

Math Magic

The developer’s description of this app is one of “mini-adventure” – and that it is. The characters are spell casting apprentices who use the magic of math to defend their world. In the Library players access the mini-story, this explains properties of multiplication. Students who enjoy reading fantasy will be drawn into the narrative. Parents or teachers can also read this out loud, adding just the right amount of drama. The Courtyard provides the first attempt to build conceptual understanding, with short instructional explanations as scaffolds. The Village is a great place to practice fluency. Feedback is given on the number combinations students need to practice. If you are looking for a good app that helps build conceptual understanding and fluency, with the right amount of imaginative play, this is it.
