How I Use It
This is an app I let students use in free time or for extra enrichment. They love the challenge of trying to figure out how to use the numbers for addition and subtraction to make the problems work. I wouldn't use it with students that struggle because it does require some higher thinking so they may become frustrated with the app. But it was great with my students who wanted a little challenge!
My Take
There are limits to this in a classroom, as you can't reset the app so if you are using shared iPads, students would have to take the problems where the last person left off. I do feel it's a great enrichment activity to challenge thinking skills so I've recommended it for home use with students that have a device at home to use.
