Math is all about pattern and order, and the more kids see it as a game, the more willing they will be to tackle new math problems. I love these new apps that are coming out. Apps that teach kids analogies and patterns in ways that just 5 years ago for such great visual content I had to go through months of search and mail orders. This is great.
Here are two really engaging apps for kids, younger and older.
MindTweak – app
MindTweak is a higher order thinking app. The app goes through a series of problem solving exercised that suits all ages. It is great for building problem solving and thinking skills. I can’t believe that it’s only $0.99 (greatly underpriced).
