AND it’s free for now, so WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO GET IT!
Late last spring, Learning With Meaning introduced our first math app: iGet Math: Base 10. Kids loved it, but parents and teachers struggled with the way it was set up. We received a lot of feedback about the complexity of the controls and quests. We have incorporated all of your feedback into our new (and much simpler) line of early childhood math apps. The learning is the same, but all of the complex controls are gone. We invite you to try these new versions of our Math Discovery Apps for free and let us know what you think!
Make 10 is our first of several simple math games that will help young children to really understand how math works. Players can move fun, animal shaped blocks from one side of the equation to the other and see how the math changes. This helps children to learn how to read the language of math and also offers one to one correspondence between objects and numbers. The balloon dog blocks (go to settings and tap the blocks to see the different blocks) are still the favorite of our young software testers… they really seem like balloons floating through the air!
For teachers, Make 10 Plus Quests is a great center for your Preschool, Kindergarten or First Grade Classroom.
This app addresses the following common core standards by allowing students to play with and discover math:
Count to tell the number of objects.
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.
For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
