Giveaway and Featured App: TeachMe: Math Facts - a brand new app for practicing math fluency

Do you love the TeachMe apps as much as I do?  If so, you will be excited to find out that 24x7digital released a new TeachMe app dedicated to math! I may have done a big jump for joy when I heard about this. Practicing math facts can be a monotonous task for many children, but TeachMe: Math Facts incorporates their wonderful positive reinforcement strategies to make practice engaging.

What is even better than a brand new app for Math? The fact that we get to give away FREE copies! We have 19 codes to give to lucky winners.

TeachMe: Math Facts provides a great way to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. A child will make their way through practicing each number set within each of the categories. The presentation of the quizzes are designed as flashcards. A child answers a card and the next one shows. There are 13 problems on each flashcard quiz to work through in 1 minute. When practicing math facts, it is important to practice fluency also, so the time limit is very appropriate in this app. Different colored trophies are earned based on the number correct. This will help keep children motivated to become better and earn higher trophies.

The app allows 40 different children to have individual profiles. As a teacher, this is absolutely wonderful for such a low price. It is also a very decent price for use in the home setting. Each child's profile can be individualized in settings to change input mode and the number of correct answers needed to earn coins. It also tells what the child is working on and shows their rewards, which is helpful for an adult to keep track of.

The variety of positive reinforcements and rewards sets TeachMe apps high above other apps. As a child practices, he earns coins that can be used in many ways. In TeachMe: Math Facts, the coins can be used to decorate the inside and outside of a house, play in a photo booth, buy shape bracelets, make a fish aquarium and create sticker pictures in the Art Store. With so many options, there is always some way that a child will enjoy being rewarded.

24x7digital has not disappointed with this new app. I am excited to have a new app to practice math facts that is so rewarding and engaging for children. How would you like to have your very own copy of this app? You can! Enter our giveaway below, but if you just can't wait, you can get it for the low introductory price of $0.99.

Giveaway will run through April 18th. Winners will be announced on Facebook and notified through the email associated with their Rafflecopter entry.  Please check email on the 19th, as these codes will expire quickly.

TeachMe: Math Facts is designed to help grade school students memorize math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Being able to recall simple math facts quickly is essential when doing more complex math. TeachMe: Math Facts is the sixth installment in the popular TeachMe series of educational apps for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

TeachMe: Math Facts helps teach math facts by giving quizzes by fact group (for example multiplication by 5’s). If a student earns a gold trophy in a fact group quiz, they graduate to the next fact group. If a student does not get a gold trophy on a quiz, the app will give extra practice on incorrectly answered questions, as well as on questions that they took a long time to answer. This extra practice is done by reviewing single questions and also timed questions 3 at a time. Once the student has reviewed problematic questions, they are given the chance to retake the quiz in that fact group.

TeachMe: Math Facts keeps children engaged with a unique reward system in which children earn coins by playing learning games at the school. They can move around the rest of TeachTown to spend their coins on fun rewards. Children can build their dream home in the TeachTown Neighborhood, make creative photos at the Photobooth, collect stretchable shapes at the Shape Store, visit their virtual aquarium at the Fish Store, and decorate different scenes at the Art Store. The simple and intuitive user interface is child friendly, allowing children to play without help from an adult. Mimi Mouse, the animated teacher, gives verbal instructions and feedback in a positive way to encourage the student to learn and succeed!

Quiz content, options and rewards can all be customized for each student. Parents choose the topic to start with, the range of fact groups in that topic, and the order of the operands. Parents can also change the quiz options: the number of questions, the time limit (if desired), the input mode (keyboard or writing) and more. Parents can also set the reward criteria for how a student earns each trophy and how many coins they can earn.

Each child has an achievements screen which motivates and encourages learning by showing progress and trophies for each fact group. Parents can use this screen to quickly see progress of their child.
