KidsMathG4 By Sprima Inc. - Review and Giveaway

Kids Math is an iPhone app that sets out to test the extreme limits of your Mathematical knowledge. It is just as challenging for adults as for kids.  It is available in seventeen different languages - English , Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian , Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish and Swedish. It requires iOS 5.0 or later to operate.  

If you would like to purchase the App now, please do so via this link iTunes  . It is currently priced at $1.99 in the US iTunes Store. 

My maths days are far behind me thankfully, but I went about testing this App oozing in confidence at my mathematical ability. I soon realised that my brain was not as sharp as it used to be in the math field.  Kids Math is aimed at Grade-4 , which is roughly ages 9 and upwards. This App is an ingenious way of teaching children Math without them even realising it. Once your child starts a task they will become so engrossed in it that they will forget they are actually learning and just have fun . 

The options in Kids Math are slightly different to the other apps by Sprima Inc. that we have looked at already on AppAble. In the main menu there is the option to choose between Practice and Test. The practice session  gives the user a very brief testing session.  The second option , the Test, allows you to select one of 4 different time settings, namely 1 minute, 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 45 minutes. I like the different time settings as it gives you a  good indicator of your child's attention span, mathematical knowledge and also allows for more complex testing of older age groups. 

Kids Math helps your child to learn addition, subtraction, division , multiplication in a fun way , and also poses some logical thinking questions for them to decipher . I put my 10 year old son to the test with these questions . He enjoyed the logical questions the most. The testing of the various concepts was a good indicator of how much he has learned in school. 

As with other apps from Sprima Inc, Kids MathG4 allows the user to skip over a question if they find it too complex . It doesn't affect their overall score , but the user must be made aware that even with skipping a question the clock doesn't stop and more time is elapsing. The constant reinforcement that the app gives with each correct answer is a hugely positive feature of the App. For children who crave regular feedback this App would suit their needs . 

Overall I throughly enjoyed this app. It is great value at $1.99. The educational value of the App is immense , but yet it is done in such a manner that the user doesn't always realise they doing work . It draws the user into the App, thus making them believe that it is more about fun than educational value, which creates mutually beneficial outcomes for the user as well as the Parent or Teacher.
