Catch hold of a high quality educational game (Hungry Fish) specially intended for kids from Motion Math, a San Francisco game design studio that produces fun and appealing iPad and iPhone games to learn maths. Kids can have fun by feeding their fish and playing with numbers in this game on iPad.
Hungry Fish is wonderful if you want to practice number sense, mental math as well as basic addition and subtraction. The pleasant graphics and various difficulty levels will engage students of all ages. Unlike most other math games that teach a particular problem-solving method and emphasize the answer (add 3+3 and you obtain 6), Hungry Fish inverts mathematical instruction in order to educate abstract knowledge. Your fish is starving for numbers so create delicious sums by pinching 2 numbers together – instant addition! To win a level, keep feeding your fish and unlock new fish colors and fins.
Hungry Fish challenges players to make different ways, for instance – to make a 7. You can reach this sum – 6+1, 5+2, or 3+4. Tap the screen to acquire the fish to chew on bubbles with the diverse numbers, gathering points as you go. Add a visceral component to math instruction to have enjoyment. And as an outcome, students learn the procedure by which they can reach an answer, rather than only memorizing a bunch of number combinations. The app is free to try; subtraction and negative number levels are accessible through in-app purchase.
Hungry Fish has 18 levels for children ages 4 and up and is also challenging for grownups in the later stages. Winning a level lets the player to modify his or her fish with new colors and snazzy fins. An updated version of Hungry Fish with new levels will be available over the weekend, as per Jacob Klein (co-founder of Motion Math). Thus, parents have one more excellent reason to purchase an iPad or iPod Touch for their kids on Christmas this year.
