We’re excited to share that parents and teachers have downloaded our math games more than one million times – a milestone we hit thanks to your support! Half of those downloads have come in the last four months and all four of our apps have reached Top 10 or Top 5 recognition in Apple’s App Store Education Category.
Our fraction game, Motion Math HD, was the subject of the first ever experiment on an iPad app, with research showing a 15% improvement in fractions estimation and a 10% improvement in math attitudes. Our latest game, Motion Math: Wings, features six different visual forms of multiplication, helping learners build their understanding of the concept.
A New Preschool Adding Game for Kids
We’re also excited to share a sneak peak of our first game for preschoolers, Motion Math: Hungry Guppy, the prequel to Motion Math: Hungry Fish, which challenges players find the many ways to create a specific sum, using the touchscreen to pinch two numbers together and instantly add them. Motion Math: Hungry Guppy has the same engaging gameplay, but uses a mix of dots and numbers to allow kids as young as two to learn their numbers and basic addition.
We’re excited to meet the learning needs of families with young children. By starting with dot visuals and slowly introducing numbers, Hungry Guppy helps preschoolers build an intuitive sense for addition.
We’ll make Motion Math: Hungry Guppy available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch later this summer. Both Motion Math: Wings and Motion Math: Hungry Fish are available now as free downloads on the App Store.
