Motion Math HD teaches fractions, percents and decimals in a moving new way! The graphics are simple and clean… and really add to this amazing math experience. The app uses the accelerometer/gyroscope feature, making you tilt or move your device from side to side to play the game. Motion Math HD utilizes movement-based learning to give players an “intuitive sense of math.”
In the grade six classroom, this app was a hit. They enjoyed playing and it easily occupied them for the opening and closing ten minutes of the lesson. In an ordinary week where we were studying fractions, I might make it the focus app and use it as a class opener each day and compete for highest scores.
