What It Is
With the Marble Math Junior app, kids solve a variety of math problems by rolling a marble through mazes. Get started by creating a custom profile. Your child can create a creative character by choosing different hair and different faces, making it unique to what they like. Then parents choose the math content that is most beneficial for their child's learning. There are three levels in the app: easy, medium, and hard. Parents can go into each level and choose the activities they want their child to work on, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, telling time, fractions, and a variety of other math content. Children then choose the level they want to play and start playing. Just pick up the smart device and tilt it back and forth to roll the marble over the correct math problems. If you make a mistake, you easily go back and try the game again or you can have the app solve the math problem for you so you can learn while you're watching the app. There are obstacles, such as glue or ghosts, and bonus objects that allow you to earn new marbles and extra points. The game is finished when you run out of marbles.
There's lots of customization in this app. You can turn on or off the music, and you can turn on or off the bonus objects and the obstacles. You can also change the app to a "drag" feature. If tilting and turning your device is a too challenging, just use your finger, grab the marble, and drag the marble to the correct answers.
