Splash Math was the recipient of the “Best Elementary Student App” in 2011 by BestAppEver.com. It has also been featured in Apple's “Staff Favorite” section of the app store.
Of the many educational apps we review on this site, these math apps from StudyPad Inc. are consistently high-quality learning apps.
This one for first graders is incredibly effective, fun and thorough. The personalized learning curve is great in that wrong answers are repeated more frequently until the child is able to figure out the correct answer. In this way, the student does not suffer losses in the subject of math but is coached to get better and better.
When certain points are made in the games, the student is rewarded with playful characters in an aquarium and can make them dance, feed them or try to drop anvils on their heads (as you can see, all personalities of children are catered to).
This free version of the app comes with Place Value practice and Number Sense (i.e. counting, comparing numbers and placing numbers in order). Eleven other chapters are available for in-app download as your student gets better and better.
