Today's second Good Free App of the Day is the junior version of an app we gave four stars in a recent review. Marble Math Jr. helps teach kids (5-8) early math concepts through an awesome roll-the-marble game.
It is free TODAY ONLY!
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. Earn new marbles and collect bonuses while reinforcing key concepts in pursuit of a high score. But watch out math whizzes! You’ll need to be focused and nimble to avoid the obstacles in your path.
Wrong answer? No problem! Marble Math Junior gives you the option to Replay the question or Show the correct answer in a game simulation, before moving on to the next problem.
Along with high scores and three separate difficulty levels to suit different ages and abilities, there are 16 unique marble styles to choose from. Parents and teachers can customize gameplay to concentrate on specific math concepts by selecting problem types for each level or just let the game roll with random problem generation for unlimited practice and play!
Marble Math Junior concepts include:
• shape recognition/matching
• sequencing number values and ordinals
• addition, subtraction and multiplication to 100
• identifying fractions
• adding US coins and notes
• telling time
• completing addition equations
Additionally, early learners who may not be reading yet can tap on a problem to hear it spoken.
