How I Use It
This app was used one-on-one with a preschooler. Number recognition and math confidence were supported and it held the child's interest long enough to reinforce the skills. Students could also work together on this app, making one the driver and one the passenger, making more difficult math skills more achievable.
My Take
It was very similar to many of the preschool math apps that are out there. It only has 9 mini-games, which seems like a lot, but can get repetitious and boring after awhile because no new challenges are being presented. As a general math practice and review app for preschool it fits the bill for occasional use, but should not be used frequently.
