Android App Tablet Review: Monkey Math Tablet Edition

Oct 5, 2011

Monkey Math Tablet Edition turns basic arithmetic into a game.

Monkey Math throws out the pencil and paper to make addition, subtraction, multiplication and division a whole lot more fun. The colorful, positive reinforcements are a great way to encourage kids to keep trying to improve their math skills.

The app presents young students with two different games. In one, they piece together a puzzle by matching solutions with the correct question, while in the other, the app rewards them for their speed in solving problems based on times-tables. The game’s difficulty level and time limit can be increased or decreased at any time.

Overall, Monkey Math has done a great job reinventing itself as an upgrade from smaller-screened smartphones.
