Math Slide: Place Value is a multiplayer game helping children understanding place value of numbers up to 1,000. Players play and learn by sliding tiles into the center to match an image, answer or equation. This School Edition can be used with Apple’s Volume Purchasing Program for Education VPP and contains the same games as Math Slide: tens & ones and Math Slide: hundred, ten, one.

There are two modes or ways to play this game. Competition Mode is where the player who slides all their tiles into the middle first wins, or Collaboration Mode where all players slide their tiles into the middle at the same time, working together and winning together.

Fully understanding hundreds, tens & ones is essential to progressing and succeeding at mathematics. Progressing from counting to using number facts and place value is difficult for many children. This app is specifically designed to help children make this critical progression, helping them ‘see’ and understand that 26 is 2 ‘tens’ and 6 ‘ones’ and that 7 ‘hundreds’, 11 ‘tens’ and 3 ‘ones’ is equal to 813.

• Games can be played in Competition Mode or Collaboration Mode
• 20 games all focused on place value
• All games can be played unlimited times
• Each game is a little harder than the previous game
• The app focuses on a critical math concept vital for success

Maths Adventures Limited is a New Zealand company helping children learn mathematics. We develop apps that focus on the key concepts that need to be fully understood to progress and succeed in mathematics. Our apps range from learning to count up to understanding and using fractions and decimals, with each app focusing on one key concept.

We believe:
• Everyone can learn mathematics
• Playing educationally rich games and apps improves understanding
• Learning math should be fun and exciting, a rewarding adventure

Math Slide is part of our ‘play and learn’ series, which are games high in educational value where children learn as they play. Our apps are research based and classroom tested to make sure they help children learn. We use the power of the iPad and technology to empower teachers and help children understand and learn key math concepts and to unravel misunderstandings.

What’s New
