Love to Count by Pirate Trio is an app that helps students understand why math skills are important. This app teaches from an early age why numbers have meaning and how basic math problems and concepts help us solve basic questions of everyday life.
Through games like splitting a pizza evenly for the pirates or counting the number of fish caught, children can earn virtual prizes which motivates the students to continue play. Other concepts included are telling their left hand from right, time telling, shapes and addition. The basic concept of the app blends simple math skills into fun pirate games.
Love to Count by Pirate Trio helps teach and perfect such skills as:
– knowing the sequence of numbers from 1 to 10
– counting up and down
– understanding the relationship between numbers (1,2,3â€¦) and ordinals (first, second, thirdâ€¦)
– adding and subtracting
– making 10
– learning halves, quarters and thirds; recognition of symmetrical division
– recognizing left from right.
Parents are provided with a tracking screen which is helpful for evaluating childâ€™s progress. The logging system allows the app to be used by more than 1 child without loosing their scores and rewards given for correct answers.
Love to Count by Pirate Trio aims to encourage children to discover and understand maths, rather than learn it by heart. Solving these logical puzzles will play an important part in development and build their confidence at this early stage of schooling.
