A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn fundamental math skills such as counting, matching, addition, and subtraction with Kids Numbers and Math. Kids can also practice problem-solving using both visual clues and numbers. For example, the app displays addition and subtraction problems both numerically and using pictures, such as apples, which allows young kids who are still learning numbers to solve the problems by counting the images. As a bonus, kids can also learn to count in five different languages with this app. Kids Numbers and Math offers focused, fun practice to help kids master basic math skills.
Ease of Play
Once kids begin playing individual games within the app, the voice commands and visual cues make the games very easy to play, as long as kids know the basic addition and subtraction signs. Kids who can't yet read will likely need help selecting games from the menu since there are no voice commands for the menu.
Products & Purchases
There's an "More Games" button on the menu screen that takes kids to a page advertising other apps from the developer.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
For preschoolers and early elementary school kids who already know a bit of basic math, KIDS NUMBERS AND MATH can help reinforce those skills in fun ways with colorful games and encouraging voice-over instructions. For toddlers or preschoolers just learning about numbers and counting, you may need to guide them through the basics presented here a few times. Enabling the shake effects changes the games up with very little shake and without much warning, which may be confusing and frustrating for some kids.
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.
