What's New in Version 2.4.0
Minor User Interface Changes
We heard about this game from a friend and gave it a try. Our 6th grader wasn't interested in it since he felt he knew "addition". Come to find out the game was a fun challenge for him and he soon realized he could learn more. So far worth the $3 purchase.
