Mathomatix: Number Sense HD has arrived!
Mathomatix: Number Sense is back and better than ever! Endorsed by Apple as New and Noteworthy (for the iphone) this popular app for kindergarteners makes its debut on the iPad. Like the original, this first of the Mathomatix series for tiny tots comes with five fun games rolled into one app. But this time, based on the encouraging feedback we received, the games have been redesigned*. We have upped the learning quotient without compromising on the fun quotient which made the original so popular.
Helps your kids learn counting from 1 to 30 by feeding some monsters. Don’t worry, the monsters don’t bite but the game will definitely keep your kids occupied.
DO THE DOTTY
A simple but engaging connect-the-dots game that will help your kids recognize and memorize numbers in the right order. Oh, and don’t be surprised if they show you a moon that they have just colored blue!
A super hero donkey (Drizzle is his name) is all you need to get kids to compare numbers, without objects, from 1 to 10. And yeah, Drizzle can be tickled too!
This deceptively simple game uses a school of fish to demonstrate the concepts of greater than, less than and equal to! Your kids are gonna love the interactive environment.
TOOT TOOT TRAIN
From Chocolateville to Licorice Lane runs a train that relies on addition and subtraction. Curious? You will simply have to play the game!
* All the games were redesigned based on feedback from parents, educators and kindergarteners.
Every game has a unique reward that your kid can add to their ‘My Stuff’ shelf and show off proudly to everyone! So grab Number Sense HD and watch your kindergartener learn-on-the-go! Oh, and watch out for the squeals of delight too!!
As an educator, I appreciate the careful crafting of the games from the concrete to the conceptual.
The app is a nice little assistant for kids still learning numbers.
A good way to keep your kids entertained and learn something
Watch your child learn very fast!

What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed some minor bugs.
The creators of PunFlay’s Mathomatix Number Sense for the iPad, outdid themselves from a technical and educational standpoint. As a child works her way through the 5 different games included in the application, she is having fun while gaining number skills and concepts that build on each other in a natural and pedagogically appropriate way. I wonder how many other apps have been checked against the National and California Standards for teaching mathematics to kindergarteners. Very impressive!
All in all, I give this app 5 stars. As an educator, I appreciate the careful crafting of the games from the concrete to the conceptual. This is a real learning tool as well as an attractive and entertaining game. Bravo, PunFlay!
My 5 yo autistic son uses this and his 7 yo sister is also using it. It has such a nice range of ease and difficulty. I love that there is a math problem that requires you to write the number in with your finger! Her number writing has improved considerably already! Very much worthwhile for young math learners! Make more of these please!
This app is great for developing number sense in early childhood. My only suggestion for improvement would be the ability to repeat the task because sometime they don't hear it the first (only) time and then will guess wrong and become frustrated.
