It’s an App designed for children (and parents) since it focuses on the way kids are learning in school TODAY.
As a parent, I thought helping my children with their school work during their early childhood years would be a breeze… then, math happened. I’m not sure how or when, but I believe that a single person (because more than one would never have agreed), had a knee jerk reaction, and decided it would be a “great idea” to change the way kids should learn math today. Somehow, “that person” ruined the only hope I had in not spending too much time on homework… again.
Do you remember the Abacus?
Fortunately, the amazing people over at ABAQUEST had another “great idea” (the difference was they actually thought this one through), and created an App suited for children and parents to learn everything from basic (adding and subtracting), to more complex arithmetic operations (multiplication and division of multiple numbers). Do you remember using an Abacus when you were younger, and what a great tool it was? Well, Abaquest teaches students (and parents) how to use an Abacus the right way!
Similar to Kumon, Abaquest is a self-learning, level-based maths enrichment program. With their 6-Step Learning Methodology and 26 levels graded gradually as students learn, a choice of instructor voices to match a familiar accent (clearly Abaquest is not universally challenged), it’s surprising the App is FREE (in-app purchases are also available). You can find the App on iTunes and Google Play.
The method behind the Mental Maths App, encourages students to learn through Understanding, Observing, Judging, Identifying, Doing and Challenging activities.
After using the App with my daughters, I thought it would be a great resource for parents and their children, especially since it has helped me considerably with their work and using the App gives me some quality time with my little ones while they learn. Try it out and let me know what you think!
