Description

Help your child get a head start in math with this science-backed game!

Your child will love adventuring through Monkey’s world of school, pools, and picnics, while simultaneously exercising her intuitive sense of quantity, or “number sense.”

Research shows that children with a stronger number sense tend to perform better on real math tests (Halberda et al., 2008). Our games aim to improve your child’s number sense, so he or she will have a leg up at learning math in school.

Four and five year old children who played digital number sense games demonstrated better math performance (on tests of counting, number identification, addition, etc.) compared to control groups, when tested right after a brief practice (Wang et al., 2016) or after several weeks of practice (Park et al., 2016). More 4 Monkey is adaptive and continually challenges your child’s number sense, with a parent dashboard to keep track of progress. Children from ages 2 to 6 enjoy playing More 4 Monkey.

Daughter made progress right away

It was really neat to be able to see my daughter's progress from level to level. At the beginning, she didn't get the concept and by level 5, she was getting them all correct. Very cool!

My daughter liked it and I liked to see such rapid growth. Would recommend!
