What's New in Version 1.02.05
This update adds a new winter hat and some minor fixes. It would mean the world to us if you could leave a review!
Fantastic! SOOO Engaging!
I got this based on a Wall Street Journal review. I figured it would be cute. Well, it's cute and REALLY engaging! There are no written or spoken directions. Terrific graphics! The baby mammoth makes charming grunts and trumpets. The challenge is to clear his way through lava blown out of the top of a cat mountain using chunks of ice to cool it off so he can walk over it. You pop bubbles to release the ice and, as you progress, you need to slice the ice into specific sizes to cool a specific amount of lava. Too much ice, he can't get past the ice. Not enough ice, there is still lava left. If you fail three times, the app gives you a hint.
I tested it out for my 7 year old, hoping it wouldn't be too young. The app eases you into it, so you are just enjoying seeing what new hat he finds. (After you complete a level, he mammoth "finds" a new hat - sombrero, top hat, etc...) by the time it starts throwing actual numerical fractions at you, you are hooked! GREAT, more like this PLEASE!
Parents' Choice Award Gold - right again
I typically check the PCA's online listings because they pick great stuff. This is where we found information on Slice Fractions and got it for the kids. Another great app! They had been asking for a game with similar action, but it was merely a puzzle game. Slice Fractions has the fun of a puzzle game with great fractions practice :). Plus, it's a game that both my kids can play at their own levels. Love that! My 4 year old loves it as much as my 6 year old. We're happy and will def. recommend this to friends!
Great for visual learners!
Our five and nine year olds really enjoy Slice Fractions. It is a great way to introduce the concept of fractions. the animated characters are cute and engaging, the concepts are presented in a way that isn't scary or frustrating. even the hints are done in such a way that they offer increased levels of support each time you seek a hint, still giving you a chance to work it out without giving away all the hints right away. Wish there were more apps like this.
