Today’s app shout out is for the Rocket Math app! Just got reminded about this app after having lunch with an old Cal friend today. Rocket Math is available for Android, iPhone and iPad. You can upgrade to a paid version for $0.99.
Drills and worksheet math practice can be quite boring and tedious for your kids especially for those that don’t really like math that much in the first place. The app lets you build a custom rocket and play math missions to earn more money in order to build faster and better rockets extending the flight time of your rocket.
The free version includes:
▸ Telling Time
▸ U.S. Money
▸ 3D Shapes
You can upgrade to paid version (more than worth the $1) and get more that 56 math missions like fractions, decimals, and square roots. In the free version, you can vary the difficulty level (3 levels) for your learner and have up to 5 different player profiles for those with multiple kids. Great way to reinforce math concepts while having fun. Highly recommended for preschool to elementary school aged kids.
