Math Slide: tens & ones
By Math Adventures
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Math Slide is a multiplayer game helping children understand tens and ones; numbers up to 100. Players learn by sliding tiles into the center to match an answer, equation or image. The player who slides their tiles first wins.
Understanding tens and ones is a key math concept critical in a child’s development. Progressing from counting to using number facts and place value is difficult for many children. This app is specifically designed to help children make this critical progression, helping them ‘see’ and understand that 21 is 2 tens and 1 one and that one more than 79 is 8 groups of ten.
• Multiplayer game, suitable for one, two, three or four players
• 10 games all focused on the same key math concept
• All games can be played twice for free
• Each game is a little harder than the previous game
• Game 1 and Game 9 can be used to work out if the app is at the right level of difficulty
• The app focuses on a critical math concept vital for success
To work out if this app is at the right level of challenge try Game 1 and Game 9. If Game 1 is too hard or Game 9 is too easy this app is not at the right level.
The free version of this app allows each game to be played twice before a decision needs to be made to purchase an upgrade to unlock all of the games for unlimited play. Games 1 and Game 9 can be played unlimited times for free.

* Various other minor bug fixes and improvements.
I would highly recommend this app. I use it in my classroom, as well as for tutoring. I like the fact that it can be played individually or with up to 4 players. It helps children develop a good number sense, especially in relation to the numeral ten. It begins by focusing on a variety of ways to represent numbers 1-10 (ten frame, fingers, dot configuration, etc.) Each game level builds on the previous one, getting increasingly more challenging. I recommend this app to all my students' parents, as well as my colleagues.
My son is learning how to quickly count groups of tens. The app does a great job of reinforcing his trust that a group of ten actually contains 10 units which is a pretty big concept for kids to get their head around. Recommended for 1st graders.
Great for classroom use
Love that it is a multiple player game with differentiated instruction built right in! Also love that it presents problems in various formats. Will be using in my 1st grade classroom
