I was given the opportunity to review Splash Math. My son had been struggling in math, but lately has been doing good. Splash Math is going to be what we use on summer break (which starts today) to get him going, and maybe even get him ahead of the rest of the class next school year!
Splash Math is a fun math program that is available for web and iPad for grades K-5. Currently it is used by more than 4 million kids and 25,000 teachers. The kids love Splash Math because it makes learning fun by using games and rewards. Parents love it because it is aligned with common core curriculum and provides insightful reports on their child's daily progress.
The app is recommended by TeachersWithApps and is also featured in the true stories section of Apple as one of the apps used by Apple Distinguished Teacher.
My son has played with it since we got it, and he likes it. Just for fun, we started out on the Kinder level, just because it would be a fun way to introduce the game to in (he hates actually doing anything that resembles homework), so far we are almost up to grade level. I told him in order to earn playtime on the computer or tablet he needs to work on here first. This is going to help keep his mind fresh during the summer. Math and reading are his weakest subjects, so that is what we are focusing on this summer.
