Fun With Number Combinations

Numeric Storms is an engaging game for young mathematicians. Kids connect numbers critters together before they can drink up all the water in each level. Problem solvers will find multiple ways to make each number combination and will enjoy collecting coins to buy "extras" in the store, like more water. Some levels seem to require extras so that all the numbers can be made. Overall, a fun game tied to a very important concept of number combinations.

Though the initial rapid pace may be overwhelming for younger kids, this game is an excellent and insanely engaging way for many kids to practice and build essential math facts. Kids likely will be so engrossed in the quest to save the Land of Venn, they won't even realize they're learning math. The narration is fun and quirky, but it may be difficult for some kids to understand; however, this does not distract from the game and the thrill of fighting the invaders. Also, at times, it's difficult to make the connections among numbers either because they simply won't connect or because the numbers are hard to see with all the other interactive graphics on the screen. Being able to choose a difficulty level in the settings would make the game even more accessible for kids who might get frustrated losing repeatedly until the pace slows. Even with these minor issues, this is a fantastic tool for practicing basic addition facts and fluency.
