My daughter is in the first grade right now and we are always looking for different methods to help my daughter with her academic development and one subject we always try to encourage her to get better at is math…She is actually pretty good at it and likes solving math problems, so we try to fuel her interest. A few days ago, I was asked to do a review for the Splash Math iPad application for 1st grade math and their online application:.
The(also available on the Android platform) is an interactive application for first graders that is available as a free version and full version. The full version retails for 9.99 and has tons of other features like the parents dashboard that shows a summary of your child’s progress. It also gives you the option to have the reports emailed to you automatically.( they have this single grade app for grades 1 through 5).
In addition, it keeps a complete history of usage, so you can see what the kids have played, how many attempts they had, how many correct answers and the average of the performance so you can keep track of their improvement. The history is divided up by day, so you actually see when the kids played…very neat.
In the settings, there are options that allow you to set practice reminders, background music, sound effects, lock levels, speak question, number of question per section, play mode, chapters for play that includes place value, count and compare, add with models, addition facts, subtract with models, subtraction facts, advance addition, advance subtraction, measurements, …among other features!
You can add up to 5 different players to the dash board so that up to 5 different kids can play it and keep tabs on each one!
The app is lots of fun and upon completing each level, the kids get coins so they can buy prizes and my daughter loves that. The app is very easy to interact with and you can change the difficulty level on the problems. The 1st grade app has a retail price of $9.99.
The Splash Math – Grades 1 to 5 online program has all the features of the app and then some! This program allows parents to personalize and tweak the kid’s dashboard to match their skill level. Changing the settings is really simple, so you can adjust as your kids advance with their programs.
The amount of math related subjects covered by the program is amazing. It not only includes the basics, but you will also find: Place Value, Counting and Comparison, Add & Subtract within 100, Time, Measurements, Addition Facts, Subtraction Facts, Data and Graphs, and Geometry.
The program also includes two different games and a reward system to keep the kids engaged. My daughter actually asks to play with the Splash Math program, an app which I must say is awesome.
The program also allows you to have different users ( kids) and each user can be on a different grade up to the 5th grade.
In the parents dashboard you will see a complete report that covers the kid’s progress. You have the option to have a summary report that quickly shows you where the kids stand at a glance, or you can have a detailed report of the program usage by kid.
It also keeps track of how much time the kids are spending while using the program as well as how many problems have they answered and how many of the problems they have answered were correct.
The program is very complete and user friendly and very important, your kids do not have to be forced to work on math problems, they actually enjoy it which makes a huge difference in the learning process.
Theis not a downloadable program but one that you sign in to which is very convenient because you can access your account from any computer! The retails for 29.99
I used hearts and bows to blackout any account information.
