What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this app was created by a father as a way to help kids visualize basic math concepts. The app can be adjusted for different difficulty levels beginning with kindergarten through 5th grade. Cute picture puzzles, artwork, animations and voiceovers are used to make math less intimidating.
Is it any good?
KidCalc is a beautiful collection of easy exercises voiced by the developer's preschool daughter. Each lesson draws math-shy kids in with bright colors and simple games. Familiar objects such as cupcakes and baseball hats are used to visually demonstrate addition and subtraction. In another exercise, each solved math problem reveals another section of a full-screen photograph. The whimsical Count Snowflakes game counts out loud as kids tap snowflakes falling on different pretty scenes.
