This is an educational app that turns adding and subtracting into a game. The child’s goal is to leap from platform to platform and to try to get to the exit before time runs out. The trick is they need to solve addition and subtraction problems in order to jump to the next platform. If they get an answer right, they jump. If not, they lose a life. Lose three lives and the game is over.
Conceptually the app lays out platforms relative to each other so that the player jumps "up" to get to a higher valued platforms and jumps "down" if the next platform has a lower value. This cements the idea that adding creates a larger number while subtracting creates a smaller one.
Help is given for every wrong answer and the child can work through the problem step by step. All instructions and feedback are provided in text and audio so your child can work unaided.
Parents and teachers can see how a child is progressing by navigating to the progress scene, which provides, for each level: the percentage of questions answered correctly; a list of every question answered correctly, and; a list of questions answered incorrectly along with the incorrect answer given.
This app is aimed at children between the ages of 5 and 8 years old.
