Description

An animal adventure through the world of numbers!
Give your child a chance to play with numbers - they'll have a blast zooming through the number line as they master place value.

Motion Math Zoom's zoomable, stretchable number line is missing some numbers - it's up to your child to put the numbers back where they belong. The new game uses concrete objects to represent abstract numbers: from dinosaurs in the thousands down to amoebas in the thousandths. Fun animal animations and sound effects help elementary school children master the number line.

"So incredibly intuitive that my 6 year-old dived right into negative numbers, never having been introduced to them before. I can't think of a more natural way to really see negative numbers and decimals. You can't teach it on your fingers and the way the app pans and zooms across the number line really brings them to life. This app should be required material in schools!" - iTunes reviewer JoshH2

Super-engaging? Check. Supported by research? Indeed: the game teaches place value, a fundamental concept that will allow learners to develop flexible mental computation, numerical estimation, and quantitative judgment. Recent research suggests that understanding the number line has a profound impact on a children's future math ability.

"My child absolutely loves this learning app...I would much rather load my iPad with these types of games than the next bubble popping game or Angry Birds." - Rob Rosen, parent
