Changing Lives With Fun Math Games

From the editor of

We asked you what your favorite kinds of apps are and you told us.  We asked you what you liked about them and you told us that as well.  We couldn't agree more!  Fun, educational math apps are our favorite subject and what I enjoy writing about the most.

Many teachers are incorporating the iPad into their classrooms.  These provide a fun learning experience for their students, all the while helping them become more competent in any given subject.  I have used this medium myself and could not agree more.  Although a teacher cannot be replaced, they do appreciate any help they can get outside of the classroom.  

When possible, the best way to learn is from real life experience.  One does not easily forget something that you could see and touch. This is a very common approach when children are first introduced to math.  We have many math apps for younger as well as older children, that provide this same type of “hands on” math experience.

Not every child learns at the same pace.  This is just one more reason that math apps are useful.  “Cool” math games can help your child move through the educational system, while providing a fun, game-like experience and helping them to excel.

From addition, to algebra and beyond, we have reviewed many of the best math apps.

We hope you are enjoying our newsletters.  We would love to hear back from you on what your favorite apps are and what you like about them.  We would also be interested in which apps you dislike and why.  Please reply to this email to give us your feedback, thanks!

Motion Math: Hungry Fish

App Review

This is a math game that is suitable, fun and challenging for all ages. It hones mental addition and subtracting skills through a unique and fun game.

The object of the game is to feed hungry fish. The fish is labeled with a specific number and you must have him eat bubbles that add up to that number, based on a math question given.

The game goes from really, really simple – like, 4 year old simple – to “OH MY GOODNESS NOT EVEN EINSTEIN COULD BEAT THIS GAME!” tough.

I thought I could beat the highest level. My fish had a “41” stamped on him” and suddenly I was inundated with about 20 bubbles, all of different numbers, and just when I was about to do some addition I suddenly got hit with another set of bubbles!

So now I’m going to start playing the easier levels with my tail between my legs, but I do like the idea of being able to eventually do really really fast, mind boggling addition, once I get awesome at this game!


  • Really fun math addition and subtraction game
  • Well designed and easy to use
  • Lots of fun
  • Free, with an additional in-app purchase for more levels and negative numbers
