Monkey Math App

Monkey Math

By GiggleUp
Age Recommendation 4+ years.
In this app, kids must move through the different islands to achieve the end goal of recovering the treasure stolen by the bad monkey. To complete, they must answer maths questions as they move through the different environments presenting kids with different types of maths problems. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Kids will love collecting the treasure and solving the equations with answers as their ammunition.  They have also added a rewards system where the child can use the coins they have collected to claim different outfits for the monkey which give you different powers.

There are 65 levels with beautiful graphics and a theme that is sure to appeal. The game provides kids with the right answer after they have attempted a few times adding to the learning experience. The number pads at the bottom of the screen the children must use to answer the questions are a good size making it as easy as possible to touch the right key quickly. This is a fast paced game which requires kids to think and act quickly making ease of use vital.

It’s great to see the game presenting higher levels of difficulty as the game progresses, automatically adding a longer life to the app. This app certainly does make maths fun. But while this is a great up, I do NOT feel this is a game achievable for most 4 year olds as recommended on the app store.  I believe this to be agame for kids at least 8 years and up especially if you are after a good balance of easy and challenging.

Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, 4S, 5, iPod touch, 3rd, 4th and 5th generation & iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
