Speed! by Highhill ES
By Jeffrey Norkoli
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Speed! makes skip-counting loads of fun, and mastery of skip-counting helps make learning multiplication easier. Compete against the computer to be the first to get rid of your cards, but watch-out...... if the number in the middle is the same you must be quick to tap the Speed! button, otherwise you will get all the played cards added to your stack.
Skip-count by 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's and 9's. Begin as a Trainee and advance to Legend. With five levels to pick from and eight numbers to skip-count, this game will keep the learner entertained for hours.
Speed! is an educational app that is entertaining for all ages.
- Does not contain integration with social networks.
- Does not use data collection tools.
I own the card game of SPEED from Highhill Education and when I heard about this app, I ran out to get it. My 9 year old didn't put down the ipad for over an hour as he played and played and played (and laughed!!). When his siblings (ages 11 and 13) came into the room, he made them try it and then he promptly made them give the ipad back so he could continue. GREAT GAME!!!
What a great concept for learning multiplication and skip counting! Also good for hand eye coordination! The only reason I rate this 4 stars instead of 5 is because the black outline around the numbers makes some of the darker cards hard to read. (I'm using an ipad mini.)
Fun card game!
My kids are enjoying this app very much -- they like that it is so much like playing a game of Speed with real cards and that there are multiple difficulty levels to choose from.
