IMG_0121.PNGMonkey Math is an iPad app that is designed to help children practice their multiplication tables. The app contains two games, Chains and Times Tables. In Chains your child answers a math problem, taps on the card with the correct answer and watches it flip over to reveal another problem. They continue this process until all the cards have been flipped, revealing a picture of Mr. Monkey. Monkey Math will keep track of the amount of time it takes them to complete each chain of problems. In Times Tables your child chooses a number and then answers multiplication problems involving that number. Their goal is to earn a gold medal for each number’s multiplication table so they can receive a trophy from Mr. Monkey. Mr. Monkey is a gorilla who apparently likes math a whole bunch!

Monkey Math allows multiple children to use the app at the same time. They can each save their individual scores and times. The app is a fun way to get in basic multiplication practice. It has the look and feel of a chalkboard and I enjoyed the design.

*I received a promo code for Monkey Math but I forgot to use it when I downloaded the app. This means I have one to give away! If you’ve got an iPad and you’d like to try out Monkey Math please leave a comment. Codes only valid in the US App Store.
