iLiveMath Animals of Africa App Review

Since one of my son’s special interests is Animals, I jumped at the opportunity to review one of iHomeEducators Educational Apps: iLiveMath Animals of Africa. This is the first app they developed in a series that use animals as the base for word problems. {They also have math apps that focus on transportation, agriculture, insects, and the Winter Olympics.}

From their website:

iLiveMath Animals of Africa” brings math to life by describing a group of animals as a coalition of cheetahs, parade of elephants, or a dazzle of zebras. There are 26 animal types from Africa (additional updates will include more African animals and problems). The app automatically generates over one million possible combinations of questions.

Three levels of difficulty can be configured to help students from first through sixth grade as they move through different operations and challenge the student with equations from single digit to triple digits.

Rex has had an aversion to word problems in the past. It was as if he had a mental block that he just couldn’t move past. This app has changed that. For one thing, he loves that he is not only allowed, but encouraged, to play on Dad’s ipod. But, more than that, once he started seeing word problems with his much loved animals as the focus, it was as if something clicked for him.

If you have a child that has resisted word problems, then I highly recommend the iLiveMath series to make it more fun. {They also offer apps for grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.}

And, here’s some fun – they have given me the opportunity to give away 9 codes so that you can have an opportunity to win your very own copy!
