"I'm a teacher of 4th and 5th graders and this is one of the best math apps I've found...I've watched kids who have struggled mightily with decimals suddenly understand how the whole system works...Every classroom should have this app." - iTunes reviewer MN Teacher
Master numbers, negatives, and decimals with this animal adventure! Motion Math Zoom features the world's most interactive number line - kids have a blast exploring numbers as they gain a deep understanding of place value.
FUN NUMBER LINE EXPLORATION
Motion Math Zoom's zoomable, stretchable number line is missing some numbers - it's up to the player to put numbers back where they belong. The new game uses animals to represent abstract numbers: from dinosaurs in the thousands down to amoebas in the thousandths.
PARENTS AND TEACHERS LOVE IT
"So incredibly intuitive that my 6 year-old dived right into negative numbers, never having been introduced to them before. I can't think of a more natural way to really see negative numbers and decimals. This app should be required material in schools!" - iTunes reviewer JoshH2

What's New in Version 2.8.1
If you enjoy Motion Math: Zoom, please leave a review!
I think it is pretty cool, except for the $3.00-for-24 thing. Also, I wonder what the app would be like if it introduced a millions and/or millionths place, or at least something cool like that, in maybe a future update to the app. Other than that, its fun!
Great introduction to decimals
I read a few reviews about how thus is good for younger students, but it worked really well introducing my 4th grader to decimals too
This app really makes numbers come alive - very cool visualizations.
