[prMac.com] Los Gatos, California - Announcing that Math Munchkie, the developer of Know Your Math Facts, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Know Your Math Facts 1.1 was designed by a first grade teacher and is based on Common Core State Standards, a nationwide standard for education. Know Your Math Facts 1.1 turns addition and subtraction into a fun game for kids, while using proven teaching strategies used in schools across the country. The app targets one of the four critical areas of mathematics, and includes a timed component to test the users' knowledge.
Know Your Math Facts Features:
* 2 proven teaching strategies to help your child understand mathematical relationships
* 16 levels, each with its own theme
* Single and double-digit levels for varied abilities
* Immediate answer confirmation
* Colorful hand drawn pictures to engage your child
* A summary page showing your child's timed test results
* Aligned with Common Core State Standards, targeting one of the four critical areas in mathematics
Using the shape of a triangle, numbers are presented in two of the corners with a question mark inside a box in the third corner. A number line is shown under the triangle with possible correct answer options. Double-digit levels have number lines below as well as above the image. Children solve the incomplete math fact by dragging a number from the number line into the answer box.
There are 16 levels in all that are colorfully drawn to keep young minds engaged. As the game is played, children begin to learn the relationship between addition and subtraction facts. The simple but fun design lets students learn math facts four at a time instead of one by one.
The Random timed component tests the users' newfound math skills with a timed quiz. To reduce anxiety, the timer is not shown on the screen, but elapsed time is given on the results page along with the number of correct answers, and which facts the student still needs to study.
The app was initially designed for first grade students, but has been shown to be a valuable learning tool for giving kindergarten children a head start in math. It is also great for struggling second graders.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 4.2 or later
* 17.2 MB
