Math Slide: Basic Facts Review

What is Math Slide: Basic Facts app?

Math Slide: Basic Facts lets kids practise multiplication, division, subtraction, and addition in a simple to understand game that features both collaborative and competitive multiplayer modes.

What we love about Math Slide: Basic Facts?

Math Slide: Basic Facts is in a well-served genre of Maths practise apps but its simultaneous two to four-player mode is a very rare feature and a good one. In the classroom or between young family members, this mode lets a limited number of devices go much further. What skills does it improve? Math Slide: Basic Facts let kids practise addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Within these topics, various options have different difficulty levels with each concentrating on a different set of skills. These include doubling, number bonds and other strategies that children need to practise and learn to become fluent in arithmetic.

What age is it appropriate for?

Children should have a secure knowledge of times tables by the age of nine (year 4 for those following the English curriculum) and Math Slide: Basic Facts will help them to achieve this. The levels within the app start easy and increase in difficulty so these will provide useful practice for children who are hesitant in arithmetic throughout primary and elementary school

Is Math Slide: Basic Facts easy to use?

The app has a simple interface that is easy to understand. The contents of each level are described in text so a basic level of literacy is needed to know what each one covers.

How will students benefit?

The practising of times tables and other aspects of arithmetic is rewarded by increased accuracy and speed. Having another way to engage in this practice helps keep this process as interesting as possible for children. This is especially the case in this app when its multiplayer mode promotes a method of playing not often available on mobile devices. The increasing difficulties of the levels in Math Slide: Basic Facts ensures that children can start at a level that suits their current skills. As they improve, they can advance on to different, more difficult questions.

How will teachers benefit?

Math Slide: Basic Facts is very easy to administer in the classroom. It is not harmed by not having individual user accounts for the children as the scores it does preserve can be easily reset from the settings page. Starting from afresh each lesson is simple. With up to four players using the app simultaneously, teachers can let all of the children in their class use the app without having a 1-to-1 device ratio. Class arithmetic tournaments could be a great way to harness a bit of healthy competition between children.

How will parents benefit?

Most apps of a comparable style and price to Math Slide: Basic Facts have more restricted coverage of arithmetic. Added to its coverage of addition and subtraction, as well as multiplication and division, Math Slide: Basic Facts has the extra dimension of an entertaining and useful multi-player mode. This turns the app into a family-friendly game where parents can provide supportive competition to help their children practise arithmetic at home.

What Math Slide: Basic Facts can improve on?

Math Slide: Basic Facts works well as a game so it would be nice to see its presentation be a bit more game-like. As it is, the app is simple, clean-looking and perfectly fine, however, with some particle effects and other familiar gameplay feedback effects, it could become more attractive to children.

How much does Math Slide: Basic Facts cost?

This app contains no advertisements and has no in-app purchases to be made. If you look at the other apps produced by this developer, you can find similar apps that work as trials and are expanded by in-app purchases. The advantage of buying the app reviewed here is that teachers can use the Apple Volume Purchasing program to save their schools some money.

Is Math Slide: Basic Facts safe to use?

Math Slide: Basic Facts does not ask for any personal information, does not administer user accounts, and contains no advertisements or chat functionality. Its content is entirely appropriate for young children.

Overall rating of the app

Math Slide: Basic Facts is a simple app that works well and has the potential to provide useful maths practice. For providing a solid, if simple, practise structure but enhancing it with simultaneous multiplayer action, Math Slide: Basic Facts is awarded 5 stars in this review.
