-- Number Crusher --
The purpose of Number Crusher is to practice the earliest understanding of numbers, and the focus is on the numbers’ shapes and relation to each other as well as what they represent. Set theory, number sequences and simple addition is the basic structure of understanding numbers and getting ready for math in elementary school.
-- Learn the numbers’ shape and writing direction --
One of the many things you have to master in early math practice is to write the numbers. Children need this skill in order to write the answers to equations in their math books. In Number Crusher, children will learn to write the numbers from 0-9 in a simple and fun way.
-- Learn the relation between numbers and amounts --
In Number Crusher, children can learn the connection between numbers and the amounts that they represent, by seeing them represented with tangible and easily recognizable objects. Help the Minitutor alien by collecting the right amount of bolts for the broken UFO.
-- Learn how to count to 10 (and higher for the practiced) --
1-2-3-4... One of the first things we learn about numbers is their order. In Number Crusher, children have to guide through a number-labyrinth in the correct order. The easiest difficulty takes them from 1-10, and harder difficulties take them all the way up to 99.
-- Learn how to add two numbers together --
Addition is the next natural step after the child has learned to count. In Minitutor’s Number Crusher, we show the equations both as numbers and as amounts so even the youngest can participate.
-- Using digital learning materials --
We recommend using Number Crusher for 10 minutes at home with your child, in preschool or in elementary school as a variation to the first daily numbers and math practice. Talk with the child about the assignments, and let the child explain and describe the assignments and solutions.
