Ages 3-6. Numbers and Patterns naturally go hand in hand. This app will help your child to visualize the sequencing of numbers, thus helping them build a firm foundation for mathematics.
Activities like this were used by Manel Wickremasinghe for her Montessori students in the 1970s. Of course, it was done with paper and colored pencils back then! Today Manel is happy to bring this concept for children to practice number sequencing via the iPad. It is one of our most popular math apps in the App Store!
In this extension of the Hundred Board children can assemble patterns by identifying the correct numbers as they are heard aloud.
The app is very easy to follow:
1. Choose an activity from the Home Page.
2. Touch the large speaker button to hear the next number required to assemble the pattern.
3. Touch that number on the Hundred Board and the colored square will transfer to the board to assemble the pattern.
4. Your score will appear at the bottom.
Number pattern exercises help children reinforce their ability to identify numbers and their sequence.
Activities like this are often created by Montessori teachers when children need help with these concepts.
Many of you asked for this extension and we are happy to bring it to you!
Hundred Board patterns is now UNIVERSAL! Use it on iPads and iPhones!
Ratings and Reviews
If only ...
This app is great for helping kids practice their number recognition. However, if they added a setting option where you could remove the numbers from the board then kids could also use the app to practice counting by fives/tens to more quickly locate where a colored piece should go. Please make this an option in the settings!
Volume doesn't work!
Bought this last night and the volume doesn't work so we can't play the game. Very disappointed.
Developer Response ,
All you need to do is check the MUTE function on your device. We designed our apps to allow you to use the MUTE if you need it. Many developers today totally ignore this and even if you have the MUTE turned on, you still hear sound. So, it could easily get switched on and you didn't realize it. Please take a look!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
