Michael’s Math Zoo: Free Learn + Play App on Windows PhoneJuly 4, 2013 2 Comments
Here is a new learn and play app on Windows Phone. The app is called Michael’s Math Zoo and it is completely free.
Wouldn’t it be great if learning math is a blast!
Some time ago my wife and I was looking for some good educational Apps for our Android tablet. We found quite a few but nearly all of them only catched our kids attention for a short time. So I began to think about a way to fix this. How can I make an educational game that my kids will play again and again?
After some time I came up with a solution that works!
When my kids play my game they are like “Dad! Can I play some more”. They are actually trying to persuade me to allow them do math!
Your kid is going to have a Zoo – and by playing small fun math oriented games your kid will be able to expand the zoo. That generates motivation and the feeling of success. In other words; your kid will be really motivated to do math.
I think this is a new way of learning. It’s not about “hurrah, I got the math correct”. It’s more about having fun developing something (a Zoo!) and use math as a tool. The feeling of success and building up something is very motivating and I use that in Michael’s Math Zoo.
Thanks for reading this. Now go download and let your kid have fun with this app
