Come learn arithmetic with The Math Tree! Add and subtract bluebirds, doves, plums, peaches and more in this captivating introduction to addition, subtraction, and numerical equations. The hands-on, count-as-you go approach is a natural extension of early counting skills, presented with powerful simplicity. Incredibly cute graphics and melodious sounds make this app a genuine pleasure for parents and kids alike. The Math Tree was created by the developers of the best-selling apps Shape-O! ABC's and Counting Caterpillar, and is especially customized for preschool to kindergarten aged children.
Learning by doing:
Actively tapping and moving items to and from the tree is an engaging way to assist a child's progress from basic counting to simple addition and subtraction using numbers from zero to ten. Don't worry if your child is not sure of the answer - they can tap to count the items remaining in the tree, and mirror the activity by counting on their fingers. As the task is completed, the numerical equation is highlighted piece by piece, demonstrating the relationship between the parts.
Tap or drag to help owls, bluebirds, cardinals, doves, canaries and blackbirds hop up into the tree. Now count them. How many birds are in the tree now? Select the correct answer from the multiple choice keypad - the voiceover will gently guide you in the right direction.
Help the two forest bunnies fill their basket with apples, oranges, peaches, pears, lemons and plums from the tree. How many pieces of fruit are remaining in the tree? Select the correct answer to complete the equation.
As each equation is completed, golden coins are awarded. Collect 10 golden coins to win a trophy - nearly a dozen trophies in all!
