A kids app for critical reasoning
"What would happen if children who can't do math grew up in Mathland, a place that is to math what France is to French?"
- Seymour Pappert, Mindstorms
Kids are too often faced with math exercises that are mechanical and dull. They learn to solve small tasks without any real understanding of the underlying mathematics.
Mamanijo created MathLands to remedy this problem. In this app kids are asked to think deeply, by they do so in the context of gameplay and puzzle-solving. The concept is called "learning through play" and it will change children's attitudes towards math.
This is what educators are saying:
"I have a lot of great apps for math fact practice, but couldn't find anything for critical thinking/problem solving skills. This app fills the void and does it wonderfully - great visuals and interesting problems and real-world applications. This will be in heavy rotation in my classroom."
Beautiful graphics and great sound effects.
34 Levels of addictive and intelligent fun including interactive versions of the Tower of Hanoi problem, and Magic Squares. The app also contains word problems in the form of interactive comic strips.
Kids will learn crucial math skills such as:
- Problem Solving
- Number Sense
- Mathematical Intuition
