Each dot has 4 attributes: numeral, pips, color, and size (e.g., a 4-dot is twice the diameter of a 2-dot).

At the Beginner level, all 4 attributes are displayed as kids solve problems. As the difficulty level increases, one attribute is removed, until they reach Expert mode where they must solve problems based on size only. Each level can be played as many times as they like, resulting in wide age range appeal and endless fun. Bonus dots provide some fun surprises along the way.

Our favorite comment during kid testing was from an 8 year old who was staring at the game screen, with her finger poised over the play field. When asked what she was doing, she said “I’m planning my next set of moves.” We could see the wheels turning, and it was very gratifying to see that an app with such simple interactivity could make for engaging cognitive challenges.

Not worth the $3

This app presents good ways to learn the concepts of adding and subtracting and how they can be thought of as combining and separating. Unfortunately, at the harder levels, it just assesses the students on their ability to memorize rather than to know addition or subtraction. A student may also simply click a bunch of random numbers until they get the correct answer. I would want to use this for my child before they start learning addition and subtraction in written form, but there are other ways to promote these concepts than paying $3 for this app.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. At the higher levels, the app challenges the learner to focus on concepts rather than overt visual indicators, thereby cementing knowledge acquisition.

Love the first 2 levels, but once it gets into solid colors, it's confusing. It goes from being a counting game to a memory game which isn't helpful for educators. It's a great start, but the advanced bits need to be revised.

My daughter loves this app, my son likes it

My son, who has been struggling to learn fact families, likes this app. It is helping him to have better number sense. He is in 3rd grade, is very bright but also has a very slow cognitive processing speed. My daughter, who is 4.5, loves the app. It is sort of good for such a young child, but definitely can be a challenge. Hard for little hands to use more precise gestures that you need.
