Flip4Gold, created by a Toronto mom, with the unparalleled assistance of her four daughters provide a beautiful simple math app that progresses with the student. Students help Quatro the Lemur King protect his treasure by solving random math equations. A roll of the dice with a random operand, students must then select the number tiles that add up to the solution to the equation.
Any combination of number tiles selected that adds up to the correct answer works. BUT, those number tiles disappear forcing students to solve the equation in a variety of different combinations. Tiles turn red if the tiles do not add up to the correct answer.
ALWAYS count on the kiddos to really dig into an app or program to put it through it’s paces. They are NOT afraid to try every option available. Which is exactly what happened locating the “Free Play” option on the main menu.
Students and Teachers will FLIP for Flip4Gold. Download the Flip4Gold coloring book or individual pages to hype the game with students and parents. We’re a fan of apps like Flip4Gold that develop logical reasoning, strategy and problem-solving skills that is FUN.
One teeny tiny little aspect of the app that garners high praise from us is the LACK of irritating background music and sound. Bravo to the developers for eliminating distracting sound.
Progressing through the game, got my teacher brain going. How could a classroom teacher who doesn’t have the luxury of technology, (yes they do exist) use the app? This game could easily be adapted to play in a whole group, small group, or center setting.
A FREE Educational app!
