AB Math - fun games for kids: times tables

By Developer: Nicolas Lehovetzki

In the top 10 for iPad educational apps in France, Spain and Germany

Ooooooh....I know what you're thinking! You're thinking, No! Math is not fun! I don't care what some faceless guy whose job it is to write reviews on educational apps says. I won't believe it - I refuse!!!

Hey, I feel your pain. I don't enjoy math as much as the next guy. Believe me, if there were a system of calculation without using numbers and funny symbols, I would get behind it and push! But there isn't and we are unfortunately stuck with the four letter word of education - MATH. But let me tell you, this app is fun. It's a lot of fun actually. It's so much fun that I almost forgot to write this review, because I was playing it instead.

It comes with four types of game play. One is a bubble breaker game, wherein you are to sequentially pop the bubbles, in order of lowest to largest numbers. At the first level of game, "play the bubbles", contains straight numbers. At the highest levels, it's a mixture of numbers, the words of numbers and calculations. It makes for a quick and accurate ability to do basic arithmetic on the spot. The timer can be turned off and transform the game aspect of the app into a straight forward learning experience.

Several players can be tracked with the app, so this is great for teachers, home schoolers or households with multiple children. The app was specifically designed for ages 5-10, but there is an expert mode, for us adults that want a little brush up.

All around, if I had to recommend just one app for learning and practicing basic arithmetic, it would be this one, hands down.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
