More options for visual learner

Love the 3-D graphics and the ability to see addition in action. As you touch the apples to count the total sum, the apples are wrapped as if they were bought and ready to be packed home which is visually appealing. When you choose the correct answer, you get the same number of coins as the sum and that is one more opportunity to see the total quantity. That's reinforcement. Kids are motivated when they can collect a coin for each correct answer chosen in order to earn trophies and parents get to track their progress and accuracy after each game.

To make it perfect for my son who is a visual learner but has working memory issues, I would like to suggest the number sentence be displayed as he chooses the numbers and the operator '+' so that he can see the numbers and the corresponding quantities of apples at the same time. Would also like to have an option where the wrapped apples are numbered in sequence as he touches/counts them. I believe this additional feature will speed up his learning. Thank you.

Adding Apples

This is a beautifully designed app. Our 6-year old daughter with special needs enjoys this app very much. When counting the apples, they change colors after being touched. This really helps her keep track of which she has counted and increases her accuracy. Also, she has been self-selecting the higher numbers--higher than we have been working on. The app's ease of use gives her confidence and lets her control the problem set-up. Evidently she was bored with the 1+1 problems we had been giving her. I love that she was able to show us she was ready for more of a challenge.

Fun and functional way to practice math!

I love the calculator feel of the app, very cute. Aside from being cute, I find this very useful for my son during math homework and practice. I especially like how the apples change color when they are counted- this really helps him keep track of what he is counting better; my kids love earning the coins. Even my 4 1/2 year old enjoys playing! The ability to have multiple player profiles is excellent- and I love that data is kept on the accuracy as well.
