BrainNook Releases iPad App To Help First Graders With Math Skills
February 1, 2013 in Education
[prMac.com] Palo Alto, California - Nunook Interactive Inc announced the next in their line of standards-aligned BrainNook apps for iPad. The BrainNook Grade 1 Math app helps first graders develop fundamental math skills through games that combine standards-aligned educational content with exciting gameplay.
BrainNook is the next generation of learning games for schools and homes. It is a social educational game that allows students to strengthen critical math and language skills in real time with their classmates. The web-based version of BrainNook is used by over 100,000 students in thousands of classrooms across the country.
The new app allows first graders to extend their BrainNook experience from the Web to iPad. The app contains 14 games closely mapped to the Common Core State Standards for Grade 1 Math. The Common Core State Standards are a set of educational standards in use by schools across the US.
The app covers a wide range of first grade math skills: addition and subtraction to 100, commutative and associative properties of addition, word problems, skip counting, visual estimation, and many more.
Each game is designed to be a light, colorful play experience that is as fun as it is educational. Rather than answering a series of dull questions, in BrainNook students tap and drag their fish to "eat" the right answer in an underwater environment, or place beach balls into appropriate buckets based on the questions displayed, while avoiding enemies and obstacles.
Children can spend their points on attractive animal-themed badges within the app, and can use those badges to decorate their virtual home on the BrainNook website.
Students can log in to their BrainNook account from the iPad, allowing them to solve assignments from school through the app, while generating detailed information about their performance for teacher and parent analysis. Teachers and parents can access detailed information about each student's performance through a Web-based dashboard and, for teachers, through a separate iPhone app.
BrainNook is the first multi-platform social educational game. Our mission to is to allow kids to learn wherever, whenever and on whichever device they want, while staying connected with their friends, teachers and parents.
