Great app for rote math skills
I install this on all of my devices that my kids work on. I find it highly motivational for any level of child. There are ability levels so the children don't get easily frustrated. It doesn't move too fast for them. The app keeps them occupied and learning their math facts. It is reasonably priced.Continue reading

Useful learning tool
Math bingo worked much like a physical game but allowed students to become more familiar with the tablet they used. I use it often for lesson reinforcement.Continue reading

Visually stimulating for students with ASD & helps w/ fluency training
This app is frequently used to reinforce single digit computation following a lesson and/or individual practice. Students who completed paper/pencil tasks enjoy practicing their skills using the iPad as it is interactive and embraces their strongest modalities/learning styles. It would be awesome if the app could be customized to put to in the facts that are being studied.Continue reading

Fun fluency game for kids but only for a short amount of time!
This is an incredibly simple app with very, very little learning curve. If you are looking for a fluency app that is entertaining and hits addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication, this certainly meets the criteria. Students can choose their own avatar and then play bingo by choosing correct answers based on a math fact. Once they get bingo, they can earn "bingo bugs" for high scores. There is also a new "bingo bug bungee" game that they can play afterwards. This game really doesn't hit on fluency but rather allows students to shoot a bingo bug at different angles to acquire as many coins as possible. So those are the positives. The problem with math bingo is also it's main benefit, it's simplicity. There really isn't much to do other than keep playing bingo and trying to earn high scores to get bingo bugs that you can manipulate on screen. After a while, this can be very tedious and there is no long term incentive for students to play. However, during short breaks or for quick homework assignments, this would provide a valuable tool for students to work on fluency. Just be sure you limit use to less than 5-10 minutes at a time or else students will get tired of the app and will not want to play again.Continue reading

Quick, fun learning game!
Awesome, awesome fact practice game. My first graders absolutely LOVE this game. We play it in large group as a closure or intro activity, small group during centers, and on individual student computers. The students love seeing the different items that cover the sum or difference. They have so much fun playing this game, I don't think they realize they are learning!Continue reading

Fun but low on educational value
Math bingo looks very appealing to the students and they love earning the bingo bugs. Unfortunately, I don't feel there is enough educational value to use it in the classroom. Students answer addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems and try to get 5 in a row on a bingo board. However, there is no real feedback on answers(the real answer is displayed at the bottom but I don't think the students even look at it.) Bingo bugs are earned by beating your previous time. Placing bugs is random as the timing aspect stops kids from really thinking about the best square to place the bug. Kids seemed more interested in earning the bugs and then playing with them, than in actually learning the math.Continue reading
