Splash Math – Grades 1 – 5 app was created with kids and teachers in mind. They integrate the Common Core Standards with a fun and visual way to practice those crucial math skills.
Splash math covers over 300 math concepts that range from first grade up through fifth grade. You must create a parent account to play the app. Once you have done that, then you can createindividual profiles for up to 2 children. These profiles are customizable to your child’s level and allow you to track each child’s progress individually.
As your child plays each game their progress is charted and tracked and in the Parent’s Section you can see the data for that child. They give you an “Overall Performance” score as well as graphs that break down their scores by topic and show you whether your child’s performance is improving over time.
The games are easy to play and the questions have multiple choice answers. One adorable feature is the cute little hippo that pops up in the corner to let them know if they have answered correctly. If they have, then he gives them a sweet comment such as, “Well Done” or “Awesome”. If they answer incorrectly, then the correct answer appears at the bottom of the screen and shows the child why their answer was wrong. There is also a virtual “scratch pad” where kids can use their finger to write out the problem right on the screen if they can’t do the work in their heads.
This is a very comprehensive app that includes almost every possible math concept your child will encounter in elementary school. I was impressed with the Parent’s Section and how well they track the performance of each child so that I can know what areas may need some extra attention.
My main two complaints with this app is that first, you can only create accounts for 3 children with the app. For families like mine with more than two children in elementary school it would be better if it allowed more profiles for families with more than 3 children. And second, the price is quite expensive. Most families can't pay $99 for a single program.
Overall Splash Math - Grades 1-5 is a great program that helps aid children and parents in learning those critical Common Core Math skills that are oh so important in elementary school.
