Gridloch (Numeracy)
"Gridloch" is a math app that gets the brain functioning in a small story problem setting.
Publisher: iApps Pty Ltd

Why we love this app

At first glance, this app appears to be a testing tool that may require an individual to have to do some hard thinking, but if you understand the story behind the problem and the connecting logic, then the equations and their solutions seem much easier.

What it teaches and how it works

This app is a learning tool for basic math skills, but it also increases the users reading, thinking, and problem solving skills. Your progress is recorded as you pick fun characters and progress through the levels of difficulty.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

Children are simply curious as to how things work and once they figure it out, they may want to continue to exercise their problem solving skills to more advanced mathematics. Understanding how you get to the solution is the goal of "Gridloch". It increases the users ability, awareness, learning skills, mind skills, math skills, and their patience.
