Winner of Academics´choice award Spring 2018:
"Math Bakery helps young children learn addition and subtraction skills in an entertaining manner. The graphics are colorful and unique."
"Math Bakery 1 – Start Counting is a wonderfully hands-on and manipulative app that will help preschoolers, kindergarteners, and first graders master basic addition and subtraction skills. It not only helps children practice simple problems, but it reinforces the underlying concepts such as making groups of ten while the children play."
5/5 - Best apps for kids
"With no in-app purchases, games that can be fitted into almost any time frame, and such elegant design, this app should find a place both at home and in the classroom."
5/5 - Educational appstore
"TWA was thrilled to see how fast-paced this game can be for those children farther along with their math facts and how easily it is to adapt to a slower speed for the child new or struggling with the concepts. The addition of a Duel feature is an ingenious bonus to engage kids in friendly competition."
- Teachers With Apps
A new fun way to learn math for children aged 4 to 8. It’s just like having your own private teacher helping, encouraging and correcting. Even toddlers learn quickly to add and subtract, helping ´daddy baker’ produce cookies in time for Christmas.
The app has been developed in co-operation with pupils, teachers and leading researchers. It has been carefully tested in schools and preschools. The children have rapidly shown significant improvement.
"My teaching is made considerably easier, since the game is simple to individualize. I have 27 students in the class, with differing competence. Now I have the possibility to target the correct level for each child."
- Lotta Nilsson, primary school teacher in Lilla Alby School, Sundbyberg, Sweden:
"An incredible app! I’ve taught my 4 year-old to subtract!"
- Susanna Lindström on Facebook:
"While I find that much mathematics teaching material, especially for lower age groups, has considerable flaws, I think that Math Bakery significantly improves a child’s numeracy and understanding of the how and why of the ‘position system’ of reckoning."
- Per-Olof Bentley, senior lecturer in mathematical didactics at Gothenburg University:
YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN:
-to gradually improve self-confidence in addition and subtraction
-to understand numbers, distinguishing between digits and groups of ten
-to ‘see’ what happens when numbers are added or subtracted
-to reckon using “ten friends” , "halves" and “doubles”
