++ update ++ we changed our rating from 4 to 4.5 after watching seeing how this app grew on our children. Not a standard math app, but great.
Grow Your Garden HD takes a holistic approach to learning early math concepts such as addition and subtraction side-by-side in real world type settings.
At first, this math game starts off simply – just add drops of water to a plant to make it grow. It quickly gets more complicated as you have more than 1 bucket, so you need to do some mental math to work out how much water you need. You might even over water your plant and invoke an angry rain cloud.
Although I like this app, I am a little on the fence about how easy it is for 5 – 7 year olds to grasp. If you are looking for a standard way of learning early math concepts, this might not be the best app. However, if you are interested in a more creative, fun and challenging way of learning math – this might be perfect.
