Electric Sums - Lumio Addition & Subtraction for iOS

Developer's Description

Is something broken? Need to fix it? Sounds like time to visit Digit! Fix it, Digit! 'The learning support is superb and the app feels more like a sophisticated game rather than an instructional app.' The iMums, 5 stars Solve addition and subtraction puzzles and uncover a story about gadget fanatic Digit and his robot Bobo. Problems and story episodes unlock as learners progress through 2 structured learning pathways.1) Fix It, Digit!Digit must complete the electric circuit puzzles to fix the gadgets and he needs your help! These puzzles are based on the full partitioning strategy used in school. Large numbers are broken into place values (469 = 400 + 60 + 9) and then added together. 2) Digits Black Out! The ship is dark, the lights went out. It's time to give Digit a shout! Digits robot, Bobo, gets to work joining two points on an electric number line. Kids add and subtract big numbers with small steps! These puzzles are based on a partial-partitioning number strategy. Working with a number line model enables little mathematicians to visualize the computation as they work closer and closer to the sum or the difference. 3 animated tutorials walk learners through two different methods of adding and subtracting. This app contains puzzles for free and 1 in-app purchase to unlock all remaining puzzles.KEY FACTS Addition and subtraction within 1000 using place value Designed for kids aged 6-9 Meets Common Core Standards Boosts problem-solving and thinking skills Unlock the story and problems as you progress Animated tutorials Hints and instructional content for each problem One in-app purchase for full access to all puzzlesLEARNING BENEFITSThe learning objective of the app is for children to understand and practice general methods for adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers using place value.
