A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

Math Magic is very simple to use: easily legible numbers on colorful backgrounds and four multiple-choice answers. There are no instructions included, but it is fairly intuitive. Parents need to manage the difficulty settings for younger children because they're a bit more complex than the game itself.

Is it any good?

Math Magic is a simple arithmetic program that covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It scales easily for younger and older kids with smaller or larger numbers, negative numbers, and multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank options. For beginners working on addition and subtraction problems, a magic wand displays objects like stars or teacups to help the youngest players with counting. Cheerful and enthusiastic kids' voices cheer for correct answers and urge you to try again on incorrect answers, and for every five correct answers a "sticker" appears on the screen.
