[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - After "10 fingers +" and "Up to 100", "More or less" is the third app from Marbotic to learn mathematics on the tablet. With this app, children explore the concepts of addition and subtraction! Small beads are included in every activity to represent quantities. Children can manipulate them by themselves to understand addition and subtraction. Three levels of difficulty are offered to allow children (from 6 to 8 years old) to discover these operations autonomously and gradually.
Developed with the assistance of schoolteachers and inspired by the Montessori method, the app is already available in 11 languages, including French, English (British and American), Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Swedish, Dutch, German and Italian.
Children can understand the operations by working on different goals:
* Adding or subtracting quantities
* Playing with quantities
* Working with complements (e.g. 3 7=10)
* Complete missing number operations
In each activity, there are three modes available (free, challenge 1, challenge 2) that enable children to play in different level of difficulties. Different settings will adapt to the children's level.
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 68.3 MB
Pricing and Availability:
More or Less 1.1, the fun new app to help children learn addition and subtraction, is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Education category. A dedicated version for Android tablets is also available via Google Play.
