Any parent will tell you that kids love playing on tablets, and they don’t generally love learning core academic subjects. Zap Zap Kindergarten Math provides a handy solution to this dilemma by turning math into a fun tablet game.
It does this by ‘gamifying’ mathematics for kindergarteners, or pre-schoolers, turning a variety of different math problems into adorable cartoon mini-games featuring aliens and other playful bric-a-brac.
Divide and conquer
These mini-games fall into three different categories – Numbers, Shapes and Measurements, and Add and Subtract – and there are absolutely loads of them. Better still, their difficulty is adaptive, so if your child is struggling or finding things too easy the game will change accordingly.
On the face of it Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is very much your standard, professionally produced mobile casual game. It sees your kid flying around in a rocket, knocking into asteroids, and trying to find the three themed worlds with the help of a mini-map.
Completing each mini-game unlocks the next, and yields a jigsaw piece, but instead of giving an alligator a bath, feeding a sweet to a monster, or anything silly like that, your child will be adding, subtracting, making big shapes out of little shapes, and so on – all in the company of adorable little aliens.
Do the math
Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is a fun mini-game collection with a serious educational mission. That’s why it’s aligned to the Common Core in the US, and fully curriculum compliant. It also comes with a neat tracking dashboard, so that educators and parents can accurately monitor progress in a detailed way.
The app has already garnered a lot of recognition and praise, earning an Academics’ Choice Smart Media award and honourable mention on Ask a Tech Teacher, among other plaudits. It also has a perfect 5-star rating on both the App Store and Google Play.
Best of all, there are no in-app purchases or pesky ads, making it a rarity among mobile games. So what are you waiting for? Zap Zap Kindergarten Math is available on Google Play and the App Store right now.
