New iPhone App for Kids - BugMath!

Bugs have taken over the iPhone—no, not the kind of bugs that crash your phone, but creepy, crawly kinds with an unexpected goal: teaching kids math!

TotsMobile has just released BugMath, a new educational game for the iPhone that teaches kids (ages 3 to 6) fundamental skills in counting, sequencing, addition, subtraction, and matching in a fun and interactive way. But what sets BugMath apart from competitors is its method of instruction, which is based on Singapore’s math principles.

Since Singapore’s math curriculum consistently earns top 3 ranking worldwide, Totsmobile created BugMath using the country’s main concepts, utilizing comprehensible visual cues, reinforcement of lessons in the form of games, and an engaging storyline to more effectively teach math to young children.

BugMath features a friendly alien named Ug-ug who crash-lands on Aliennz, a planet that’s full of bugs. Kids can join Ug-ug on his adventure to escape his buggy foes in five fun games, all of which teach math skills in a graduated format. Kids can start with Counting and Bug Attack and then progress on to Big & Small, Matching, and Plus Minus Bugs.
