Math can be a pretty tricky subject for kids to get a grasp on so any extra help is usually welcome. The Monster Math app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has been designed for kids nine through 11 as a way to get a firm grasp on a variety of topics. Whether your children are struggling in math or you're just looking for a way to reinforce what they've learned and build their confidence, this app can act as a fun solution.
Where the Monster Math app excels is in offering kids an educational experience that doesn’t feel like school. They will be able to take part in lessons that feel like fun games rather than a chore. The app is specifically for kids in Grade One, Two, and Three, and focuses on addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The app is set up to feel like an adventure that kids will embark upon with Maxx who is a rather cute monster. Maxx is on a mission to save his good friend Dextra and along the way he'll need to face off against his enemies, move through different worlds, and make allies along the way. It mixes adaptive gameplay with an engaging storyline, which is rather unexpected in an education app.
The app is free to use but to unlock all the training available you'll need to purchase the full version for $2.99. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and currently has 4.5 out of five stars from users. Parents seem to be quite impressed with the app's approach to teaching. It has just been updated with new features and overall improvements that are bound to impress parents and kids even more.

Working Through the Learning Experience
It almost seems unjust to use the word work when it comes to the Monster Math app because there is nothing that feels like work here. Even though kids will be practicing their core math skills they will also be busy having fun. There is practice mode and multiplayer mode, both of which offer a unique experience. In practice mode kids won't have any stress or pressure on them they are free to work at their own pace. In multi-player mode they have the opportunity to go up against other kids through the Game Center. The game will automatically adapt to your child's skill level so there is never a need to worry if it's set at the right level of challenge.
