[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Apps in Westchester, NY, is giving away their new kids mental math and strategy app, Marble Math Junior (ages 5-8), for Free today only Friday 6/22. This is an exceptional offer to celebrate the Marble Math Junior release, as the app normally sells for $1.99 in the App Store. The promotion also provides parents and educators a great opportunity to "try before you buy" if they're considering the more advanced Marble Math app for ages 9-12 and up.
Kindertown calls Marble Math Junior "One of the most engaging, educational math apps we have played to date." The object of the game is to solve a variety of math problems by collecting numbers as you roll or drag your marble through a series of mazes. Young mathematicians will be excited to earn new marbles as they avoid obstacles, like sticky green slime, and collect bonuses while working through the problems. There is no time limit - children can work at their own pace, and if they get an answer wrong, they have the opportunity to see the correct solution and then try again.
"With Marble Math Junior, we want to give kids a fun way to practice core math skills they're already learning in the classroom. Math can be daunting to many kids, in large part due to a fear of failure. But kids are naturally accepting of trial and error in gameplay, so they're more inclined to tackle challenges - which can lead to real growth." says Matthew Kicinski, President of Artgig Apps. "And that's the goal. If our apps make learning and growing fun for your child, we've done our job."
