A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids reinforce their understanding of multiplication and division, as they quickly identify numbers to be eliminated during an arcade style game using the mathematical skill of factoring.
Ease of Play
Learning curve is steep in the beginning, given there's not a helpful tutorial, but once players understand to choose numbers that can be divided by the factor, it's easier to play over time. The speed required to "factor" or divide the numbers, might be to much for young kids to complete before time runs out.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Once kids truly understand the concept of factoring and how to play, Faktr-Prime is a pretty fun, fast-paced game that can promote the ability to quickly identify which numbers can be eliminated. This game could help to reinforce multiplication and division awareness fand speed up math fluency. A more in-depth tutorial would make the game a lot more user-friendly for younger children, so parents should plan to spend time with younger kids helping them understand the concepts and mechanics of the game.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
