Today we’re going to talk about subtraction. Subtraction is an important function of mathematics for any child to learn. If your child is struggling with subtraction, there’s an app for that!
Subtracting Sardines is perfect for children to learn math operations through ‘hands-on’ object-based manipulatives that they can touch to count and interact with. There is a lot of flexibility in this app; not only is it a great tool for both sit down teaching of math concepts, it’s also great fun for independent exploration and building confidence with visual representations of the problems before tackling abstract pen and paper problems. You can focus in on specific fact families or allow a free range of play across the entire app. Perfect for building conceptual understanding of basic math in young children.
Subtracting Sardines is available on iPhone/iPod – $0.99, iPad – $0.99, and for Mac – $0.99
