Excellent! First class visuals and teaching tool! - When my wife (who homeschools) dowloaded this app for free I was skeptical. Once I saw how well it worked and the fun visuals, it was obvious that this wasn't your average "free" app. We have been able to implement it into our 8 year olds curriculum and he loves it. It is so fun, we have actually been able to add this app as a reward, even though he hates math. Plus, he just told me to rate it 1800 stars.

Not much for learning - This app although free is not going to work, here is why. This is a game. Games can be fun but with games come strategy. This game allows that to happen like many other games. My daughter five, beat all levels with all trophies. Great app right nope wrong. I asked her what 5-3 was? She didn't know. Well she beat the game but did not learn anything about math.

Creates issues with mouse - Program does not allow you to easily exit and the mouse cursor remains invisible because of a script in the program. Mild annoyance. Good game otherwise.

Review by JeromyDP

homeschooling mom of 4 - My husband set this up on my computer for my 4 year old to use during our homeschool time. My 4 year old was thoroughly interested and I could see him counting the number of sardines left over. It is great to have an introductory math game for him. The older children wanted to get involved because it sounded so fun. Thank you.

Great App - This is a great app, my grandchildren love it. I don't know what the previous rater is saying but you can easily exit on it by clicking on the menu bar. This also has full screen support. Thank you Mr.Hansen!

A great App! - This is a great app and my children enjoy it. The only thing I wish is that it would be Full Screen like Multiplying Acorns.
