Quality

IQ Safari MATH is a very high quality app that exceeds expectations on nearly every front. The app performs well for users and includes several creative practice activities. It’s a real plus to have multi-user record-keeping, making the app very useful for classroom settings. The app moves users along in a progressive fashion, as they are successful, but adults can access the admin section to unlock upper levels for students who don’t need to progress through them. The app could use a more detailed parent/teacher guide, so that users could more easily and quickly find features and learn how to use the app.

Education

This app offers outstanding coverage of basic computation skills as well as several related concepts such as place value and rounding. It provides several different practice options as well as a testing mode for each skill, and includes a number of levels that will suit nearly any learner in elementary school. There are nine levels, beginning with simple basic addition facts and progressing through challenging long division problems involving numbers in the ten thousands. There are three modes of play: Lessons, test, and games, as well as a practice section that is individualized to the given player’s current level. Lessons offer problems in increasing order of difficulty with multiple choice options. Tests are timed and require speedy work as well as the ability to switch back and forth between problem types and formats. The games section has three different games that also adjust to the player’s level: Treasure Hunt, Bubble Pop, and Memory Cards. All involve some sort of matching problems and correct answers.

Entertainment
