Baby Doesn't Count - Infant Math Dot Cards 2.0: Babies Learn Math on iOS
June 27, 2012 in Education
[prMac.com] Singapore, Singapore - Think Design Studio today is pleased to announce Baby Doesn't Count - Infant Math Dot Cards 2.0 for iPad, an update to their app that helps very young children develop an innate ability to perceive quantity and to learn how to count. Astounding new research about babies' abilities to perceive quantity intuitively suggests that babies as young as a few weeks old can learn to count. This app encourages the development of math in early childhood through simple dot flash cards for infants where the number of dots is read aloud. The update to this education application includes Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division.
Children younger than three have an innate ability to know how many dots are on a given page. They will not know how to read the number 68, but they will be able to perceive that there are 68 dots on a page; but only if exposed to programmed instruction that helps them to do so. Adults and older children have lost this ability, called quantity perception. Using this app, parents can teach their children how to count, strengthening their quantity perception, and giving them a head start in mathematics learning and understanding.
* Engaging educational game for very young children
* Dot cards from 1-99
* Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
* Proceed easily through each flashcard with only one touch
* High quality audio narration
* High contrast red on white background to suit babies' visual preferences
One of the ideal games to stimulate the development of math aptitude in early childhood, parents, caregivers and early childhood professionals can use this app to teach babies how to develop quantity perception and to learn how to count. Users simply tap Start Lessons to begin the dot flash cards. Cards appear in groups of five allowing babies to see the dots and listen to the audio announcement of the number of dots on the flashcard. The sequence of flashcards may be repeated by tapping Refresh Lesson.
The app features tips on how to best engage a young child for learning. For example, the app recommends that babies have at least a 30-minute interval between lessons. Able to be used from birth onward, this app is a fun and easy game that is visually appealing to babies and toddlers. Featuring high-contrast colors, red on a white background, this app captures the attention of young children while they learn. Users may adjust the speed at which the flashcards are presented, creating a customized experience for children.
