***** This app, the free full version of The Arithmemouse Addition Subtraction Game challenges a wide variety of ages. It is designed to improve accuracy and speed when doing addition and subtraction skills. Got 2+2 down...and 13-7...ok. Quickly, what is 42+78? ...ok,now try... 93-27? Children can select their level: random ones&ones, tens&ones, and tens&tens questions. The player answers questions in an exciting 3D environment that is absent of life meters or punishment for failure. Encouraging words follow each answer and positive feedback is given at the end of each level.
Math skills come before arcade skills in Tinman Learning games. You will see asteroids being blasted in this game. A child is not rewarded for blasting these obstacles. Moreover, they are not punished if they run into them. The obstacles only serve to provide a light game element to keep children engaged in the subject matter.
The Arithmemouse Addition Subtraction Game is an effective tool for students, parents, and teachers. Column method tutorials are provided. I know that there are other methods that are taught-- particularly for subtraction. Children are asked within the game to keep an open mind about other methods which are beyond the scope of the game.
*(Subtraction and addition methods can be complex, so please sit down with your child to help them go through the tutorials if they need help.)
