Spark the love of Math in a gradual and engaging fashion, anytime and anywhere!
Addo is about learning progressive concepts of addition. As children learn to count, the next step is to count “together”, resulting in addition! We have created this interactive application to help them in that journey. It is about absorbing the concepts and building a good foundation.
To that purpose we designed these smart flashcards. These flashcards help the children with the concept and encourage them to arrive at the answer. They get a star when answers are correct, a reward system familiar to most kids.
For beginners we use object counting as a help method. At the second level, groups of 5 are presented to help add double digit numbers. Lastly we introduce the 3 digit addition where the child can actually add the number him/her self on the flash card. This is the on-the-go learning companion for 4-6 yrs old kids.
Unlike a game, access to these levels is not restricted. Kids are curious and we welcome them to explore all three at will. With practice, their proficiency at this foundational skill will improve. And they will get that much needed practice in a gentle and fun way!
In fact, we hope that the toddler practices enough to achieve the mental math proficiency level - being able to answer all single digit addition questions correctly and quickly without using external aids!
So next time you are driving or waiting somewhere, give this app to your toddler on the iTouch/iPhone, for some quality addition practice!
