I remember the most difficult subject at my time (for most kids of course) was Mathematics. I, however, used to love mathematics and it helped make lot of friends since my peers used to find it difficult. Funny how things haven’t changed despite the passage of time and lot of students still find mathematics a difficult subject to grasp. With advanced technology and new gadgets launched every day, children are comfortable with smartphones rather than books. Parents are on a constant look out for educational apps that could help their children learn and excel, one such app which actually stands out is ZapZapMath, gamified math ecosystem
When it comes to studies for any subject, I feel it is important to understand the basics before proceeding forward. If your basics are right then it gets easy for you to understand the concepts later. Mathematics does become overwhelming for young children but ZapZapMath makes it refreshingly entertaining.
My son lately got introduced to smartphone/tablet through his friends. It was quite unfortunate but most of his friends are allowed limited screen time so he started demanding it. The first thing I did was connected with my inner mom circle in a search for apps. Through a campaign, I came across ZapZapMath.
Honestly I felt sorry for myself. I wish it existed when I was in school, I would have definitely enjoyed studying maths even more and excelled without putting as much effort as I had to put.
Zapzapmath was co-founded by Hong Kong based Max Teh Kim Seng and John Ng, former Singapore based math teachers who aimed to bring a new, gamified way for math excellence to kids all over the world.
Their Mission was to help kids solve math problems through math skill games in the most engaging and fun way and to understand if a unique ecosystem around the world could be created.
With a simple thought and based on constant hiccups still faced by students, the company believes that educational methods have remained largely unchanged for generations, some of which have proven to be ineffective for many young learners. Math in particular is seen as one of the most challenging or ‘boring’ subjects for kids, but Zapzapmath aims to change the way kids fundamentally think about it.
How does ZapZapMath App work?
ZapZapMath can be downloaded on any smart gadget and platform. It is available on all devices including windows, chrome, android and iOS. You can download the app for free using this link – ZapZapMath
First time users will have to login through email and password. The platform will allow you to choose your avatar. My son loves red so he choose a red avatar. He also loved the spaceship (his father is a huge fan of Star Trek). It is great fun when the system keeps prompting next steps and introduces you to things proactively.
There are levels and each level is guaranteed to enhance your child confidence. It follows adaptive learning techniques. If your child is unable to understand the concept then it would make things easier by making questions simple. This promotes positive attitude which is a great way to keep your child engaged.
ZapZapMath aims to cover things slowly so they offer 150 educational math games across 180 topics for grades k-6.
The app allows you to monitor your child’s growth and capabilities through a dashboard which has a user friendly interface. It is aligned to Common Core standards so most kids should find that they match up to what they are studying in school.
