App description

This App explores number combinations to ten and uses a “tens frame” (a tool to promote understanding of tens, addition and subtraction to ten). Within the game there are a series of mini games practicing addition, subtraction and number combinations. Here children use virtual counters to represent the math. There is also an open ended tool where children can create their own combinations to ten.

Reviewers comments

A useful App for young children developing mathematical understandings and practicing numbers to ten. Although not particularly exciting in user testing, the simple and strong visual interface was easy to master and gave a sound representation of the concept. Teachers report that the tool is useful and avoids having to find sets of counters for all the children!

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
