Apps for Homeschooling Gives Math Critters 4/5 Apples!

Check out Apps for Homeschooling’s review of Math Critters!

“Math Critters provides children with an engaging storyline to practice their math skills.  The critters themselves are SO cute, they make adorable noises, and my 8-year-old loves completing the levels to hear a critter gurgle in contentment.

This app really gives a complete mental math workout, including not only the simple forms of math that are normally drilled (4+8=12), but also multiple strings of numbers and solving for the unknown – an important way of establishing early algebraic thinking.  Most math apps only practice the basic form of equations, but developing some familiarity with these more complex forms prepares children to tackle formal algebra later in their math studies.
