[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - The renowned development team at Seven Academy announced today that their delightful children's educational app Count up to Ten: Learn Numbers with Montessori is now available in a new and improved updated version.
Developed in partnership with experienced teachers, Count up to Ten: Learn Numbers with Montessori is a globally-acclaimed app that teaches children how to count from 1 to 10. The app features 4 playful mini-games, with storyboards designed by Aurelien Alvarez, a renowned French mathematician and expert who works on dynamic systems from an ergodic theory perspective, and invents games for teachers. Mr. Alvarez is a regular contributor to Seven Academy and has lent his expertise to all of the company's other math apps. Along the way, children will meet and fall in love with a delightful cast of unforgettable characters, including:
* Quirky penguins, who introduce all of the numbers
* A charming mole, who traces each number into the ground
* An amusing manta ray, who plays with the concept of quantities
* A fabulous team of elephants, who hold each other by the tail to form Montessori bars
Each level of difficulty is progressive, so children can methodically develop their ability to count from 1 up to 10. Children will also earn rewards from each game that they can use in Seven Academy's remarkable "Montessori Garden", which is a virtual vegetable garden located on the company's website that is designed to motivate and educate children, while they learn about the benefits of gardening. Parents can also access the app's real-time dashboard to follow their children's progress.
And now in the latest version, parents and children will enjoy:
* Improved graphics and icons to make learning more engaging, memorable and fun
* The ability to download a universal app that is compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod touch
A fun and exciting new Augmented Reality (AR) game where parents cut a page with printed labels (either downloaded from the Seven Academy website or emailed from the app), and have their child count elephants by scrolling numbers with their finger or using the app menu arrows.
"In preschool, we learn how to count up to ten, because it's the number of fingers we have," commented mathematician, expert and app designer Aurelien Alvarez. "That's why base 10 has been chosen by modern humans, and why the app lays a solid foundation for mathematical competence that will support children for the rest of their lives. In addition, it's important to note that we don't focus on zero in the app, because it is a difficult concept that was invented much later."
"As with all of our apps, our goal is to make learning enjoyable and creative, so that young people can truly fall in love with the learning process and begin paving their way for a bright, successful future," commented Nathalie Gauthier of Seven Academy. "At the same time, we wanted to make the experience delightful for parents as well, since quality learning time is also essential bonding time."
Count up to Ten is available in French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Dutch, Russian, Turkish, Korean, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese languages.
