"The math apps by Esa Helttula allow students to practice and reinforce the specific computation strategies taught in class, with as much or as little scaffolding as necessary.
They also provide individualized feedback to each student, with an immediacy that is not always possible through pencil and paper practice. Being able to adjust the level of difficulty to suit their needs is also very motivating for the students. I am so glad to have come across this great educational tool!"
"Check out my review of Esa Helttula’s other apps. They are all fantastic for math learning and practice, and aren’t cluttered with mini-games, incentives, or annoying music. All of these apps get two thumbs up from this GeekMom."
