How I Use It
I have used this app to reinforce skills that are being taught in class as well as to have students practice fact fluency and fact families. As a first grade teacher, my students need practice in learning the different ways to get to a given answer (2+5=7 as well as 3+4=7) This app allows them to see those different ways they can make a number (both with addition and subtraction). I like that you can adjust the level of difficulty.
My Take
I think that this is a good reinforcement tool. I would not use it to teach a new concept but it is great for reinforcing and practicing skills that have already been taught. It helps students with fluency and also gives them immediate feedback as to if they have the correct answer or not. I like that the app is simple but it is engaging for students. The students are motivated by being able to change the colors on the fish. Overall it is a good app for practicing a variety of math facts!
