Does your child know how to skip count? Does he or she need practice with addition, subtraction, regrouping, fractions, and place values? With this clever app, learning important first and second grade math skills becomes an out-of-this-world adventure.
Math 1-2 takes children on a magical journey to another galaxy. They encounter three unusual worlds where they play a math adventure game and meet strange new creatures. In the Bean Works Factory Game, kids learn place value and how to solve equations. In the Swamp Hop Game, they practice skip counting and solve addition and subtraction problems. The Astrosplat Game requires careful aim to blast unidentified objects by matching the math problems to the correct answers. Each game offers increasing levels of challenge that kids can control, and each rewards performance with the mechanical parts needed to build on-screen, creature-making machines. Collect all the parts for building each on-screen machine by successfully completing the math games, follow the blueprint to assemble, and then watch these very unusual creations spring to life. Only a master of mathematics can earn all 9 out-of-this-world creatures!

My 6-year-old LOVES this!
OK … I was hesitant at first, but after my son playing this for a week, I am really impressed. He loves it and has learned a lot. Great way to engage kids in math. Definitely recommend!
Exceeded my expectations!
I bought them app based on a recommendation from a friend, and boy am i happy! I love how my son 7 year old now says, "Dad, can I play my math game?" He views it as a game. His teacher has also made mention of his progress. I def. recommend this app. I'll be getting the reading version, next paycheck! :-D
Game doesn't load properly
Looks fun until the screen goes black. Lousy app.
