Math Minis Addition and Subtraction is a Common Core Standard App for First Grade Math. The app was made by Ripple Digital Publishing. The first 4 levels are free and levels 5-8 are $.99. For children who need visual modeling this is a great little app. because
they use pictures and words for non readers when asking questions. It would be nice to have a voice component as an addition in a later update. Scores are kept at the top right of the screen to track how many are correct and incorrect. Students can not move to the next level until they complete the prior level. This is good for students who have difficulty staying focused. This app is also good to use for review or for Response to Intervention for students who may be struggling and need the extra help and time on concepts that other students have mastered. If you are in a class with different levels this is a perfect app for students who are on a beginners level.
The app includes Counting and number patterns, basic addition, advanced addition, basic subtraction, advanced subtraction addition and subtraction review, combining addition and subtraction and the final challenge.
If you are working with children with special needs you can use this app as a reinforcer to your curriculum. After you are completed with a lesson students can work independently on different levels. Teachers and para-professionales can track students to record their progress. Independent work is always beneficial in the class to see if students can follow directions on their own.
