Research has long shown that math whizzes tend to have a stronger intuitive sense of quantity, or “number sense” (Halberda et al., 2008). Our games aim to improve your child's number sense, so he or she will have a leg up at learning math in school.
In the lab, four and five year old children who played digital number sense games demonstrated better math performance (on tests of counting, number identification, addition, etc.) compared to control groups, when tested right after a brief practice (Wang et al., 2016) or after several weeks of practice (Park et al., 2016).
We are excited to release More 4 Monkey 2.0, which was inspired by this 2016 research. The app guides children through seven activities in approximate quantity, addition, and subtraction. The app is adaptive and continually challenges your child’s number sense. Children from ages 2 to 6 enjoy playing More 4 Monkey.
See below for two examples of the digital number sense activities that are in our app:
We hope you enjoy this new version of More 4 Monkey, which provides a much richer set of activities for your child, as well as a parent dashboard for you to keep track of progress.
