The new Native Numbers app by Native Brain aims to promote deeper learning and understanding while providing children with a foundation in math. Children will be able to learn the concept of numbers and basic math skills while participating in a learning experience that feels like a game! This app utilizes “Number Sense”, which is widely cited as the most critical math skill a child ever learns…Native Numbers is the first and only comprehensive Number Sense curriculum currently available in the App Store. If you are interested in checking out the Number Sense method…I would highly recommend this app.
With Native Numbers, children will use a complete curriculum that is centered around helping early learners develop Number Sense. This app will challenge children through using 25 engaging and carefully sequenced activities that are designed to develop an understanding of several core math concepts and skills, including: 1) Number Representations – kids will identify the numbers 1 – 9 as continuous quantities, discrete quantities and symbols, 2) Number Relations – kids will answer questions about number relationships (greater/less, bigger/smaller, etc.), 3) Ordering – kids will arrange numbers in order from small to big and big to small, 4) Counting – kids will use numbers to put a set of objects in order and to determine how many objects are in a set, and 5) Demonstrate Mastery – kids will apply the concepts learned to show mastery. This app is recommended for ages 4 through 7, though parents could introduce this app to children of many ages to help with math skills.
I thought that the Native Numbers app featured a wonderful curriculum that could be very helpful to children in learning basic math skills. I think that this app could be beneficial to parents and their children, as well as in a classroom setting. If you are looking for an app to help teach your children their fundamental math skills, you should definitely check out Native Numbers…while a little on the pricy side, it definitely addresses all the main concepts your child will need to have a solid foundation in math skills!
