How I Use It
I use AB Math with my special needs students. One student in particular gets really frustrated when she does not answer math problems as quickly as her classmates. This app allows her to work at her own pace and feel proud of her progress no matter how fast or slow she goes. You can also turn the timer off. The bubbles game can be frustrating for some of my students because they often mix up the 6s and 9s, as the bubbles roll around and are often upside-down. That's really the only flaw I have noticed with the app.
My Take
AB Math is a very simple and easy-to-use app. You can only work at the easy level in the free version. The paid version is only $1.99. There are three different types of games you can play. One involves trying to solve as many number problems as possible in the allotted time. The more correct answers you get, the more stars you receive. The second game gives you a number problem and four answers to choose from. The third game has you tap the correct order of four numbers that are floating around randomly in bubbles
