Making things both educational (in the traditional sense) and genuinely fun remains a difficult thing to achieve. You can multiply that by two when it comes to math. Fortunately, Math Superheroes looks like a pretty fair crack at teaching beginner math in a fun, engaging way.
Math Superheroes follows two little math-powered heroes named Mathy and Matheo, as they guide your child through the absolute basics of math. The app starts with counting and drawing and recognizing numbers, and progresses from there into pattern recognition, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and, finally, basic geometry (symmetry and basic shapes). To that end, the app provides 30 games split up into six chapters. All of the games and instructions are presented with bright, colorful graphics that should keep kids interested and convey the material in an easy-to-understand way.
Math Superheroes is available now on the iTunes App Store for $0.99.
