Rookie Maths

Age Level: Ages 5-8, Ages 8-12
By Developer: Futureantics Pty Ltd

I am still trying to get my wits around the fact that this app is free. Maybe I will go knock on some wood or something so I don't jinx this for you, because this is an app you will want to download!

Rookie Maths is a not only a very fun and engaging app, but has a 3D aspect to it that totally puts kids in the “gamer” mode. The current version allows for 4 avatars/players. Create your ideal avatar down to hair style, color, skin color and more, really personalizing the game. Once you have you avatar, and have chosen the level of difficulty (easy or tricky), just hit play.

First thing you will be given is the goal of the current game. Such as, “We need your help to save us from the Shadow Lord. His darkness is spreading throughout the land...”. Collecting artifacts and points helps you defeat the bad guys. You receive these while playing the 22 fun and unique curriculum based math games, which include hundreds of math challenges. Once a challenge has been met, another will be ready to play – with a new goal in mind. Need a little more understanding on the problems you are doing? Just tap the question mark, it will explain the task as well as give understanding on terms being used. Your 7-10 year old is going to love this one!

Math covered: numbers, patterns, algebra, measurement, data, space and geometry. I played one game that had me working with decimals, fractions and percentages, that was brilliant in how it showed the player the link between the three. The player will just “get” the idea on their own. Brilliant!
