Math Apps on ipad

17 Jan

Math in school. Some kids loved it, many, well… not so much…

I used to love math as a kid. History, geography were not really my preferred subjects but math used to be fun and easy for me. The story was different with my younger siblings. They didn’t like it or enjoy it. Math homework was always last on their procrastinating list and I remember staying up late with them trying to explain them some topics or helping them out by correcting their homework.

Lots of kids do not like math but maybe it’s because they find it boring or because they do not like their teacher’s style. But hey!, this is the 21st century and iPads can help make a difference.

Applicable to:
iPad versions: iPad, iPad 2, the New iPad, iPad mini, iPad with Retina Display

There are several games and Math Apps on iPad that can entertain and engage your child while teaching skills at the same time.

Today we are going to discuss some of the Math Apps available for kids.

Motion Math: Hungry fish

On this game you have to add (subtract, multiply or divide on the full version) bubbles with numbers to match the result displayed on the fish. Whenever the result matches, the fish can be fed with the bubble and grows. If the fish is not fed within a certain amount of time, it starts shrinking in size.

Zombies want to invade your home and you have to fight them with powerful (math) weapons. Each zombie will display a question and your kid has to answer it properly. This game is a good fit for Halloween!
