The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can gain solid practice in memorizing and answering problems using the four basic math operations -- addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. By working to master these core math skills, kids learn the importance of steady academic development, and how it makes all future learning easier and more effective. This app also helps kids identify their current strengths and weakness with various number sets, as they get immediate feedback after each flashcard and can see their challenge test results. Math Fact Master provides excellent basic math skills practice for kids in all elementary grades.

Ease of Play

Very easy to use. Kids who already know basic math concepts can easily set the mathematical operation and the numbers they'd like to practice. Just hit "Go!" and the flashcards begin to appear.

What's it about?

Practice mode gives kids a problem on a flashcard, which they answer (silently or out loud) before tapping to flip the card on the screen. When they flip the card, the answer appears with right (green check) or wrong (red "x") buttons, which users press according to what they answered. In challenge mode, kids enter the answers onto the flashcard, and the screen flashes green for correct and red for incorrect. Additional features include a timer, data showing results, and progress reports that can be emailed to parents.

Is it any good?

MATH FACT MASTER - ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION, DIVISION is similar to a deck of paper flashcards, except on your mobile device. In using this app, kids have the ability to organize by number sets and to see the results of their efforts. There are no visually stunning graphics or arcade-style games here, but it can help kids learn the basic math facts they need to know to advance to higher-level math. And once kids get into it, fast-paced flashcard play can be exciting in its own special way; kids can try to beat their past scores or improve their time. Kids may not be wowed by the simplistic drills, but if you're looking for flashcard-style math practice that kids can perform on their own, it fits the bill.

 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Make sure to have your kid's challenge test results emailed to you.

  • If you notice a certain set of numbers or type of problem is a stickler for your kid, find ways to help them practice just that particular set or skill offline with your help. Try having your kid speak the problems out loud or write them on paper.
