Splash Math: The Fun Way To Learn

I hate Math! I always said that being a doctor would be perfect for me because there would be little math involved. Boy, was I wrong. Apparently, there are tons and tons of numbers and a whole bunch of formulas to be solved in the field of Medicine.

Henry, being my son, took after my dislike for the subject. Give him any other homework and he would finish it in a heartbeat. But, with math problems, it would take him hours to finish. This disdain for it has caused us many arguments, math anxiety for him and of course, a toll on his grades.

Enter, Splash Math.

Splash Math is an interactive math program available on the web or any iOS device. Math skill levels starting from Kindergarten to Grade 5 are available in this app. It makes learning fun through games and rewards.

What I like about my Splash Math is that it challenges my son to answer each question correctly and thus helping him gain mastery of certain math skills. it also provides explanations for the wrong answers.

As the parent, I choose which Math skill sets he will solve for the day. I make sure that it will be congruent with his lessons in school. Parents are given the chance to preview the math problems and try to answer it themselves. Henry is currently in 4th grade and Splash Math covers their currrent topics such as PEMDAS, Algebra, Fractions and Geometry.

Another thing that I like about this app is that it is available anytime and anywhere. Henry uses his laptop for it at home, and when we go out, he can access it through my iPhone.

Splash Math gives you reports on how your child is doing with regards to his math skills. So, even if I am on duty at the hospital, I can easily track his progress.

Splash Math also has separate apps for each grade level. However, I prefer the all-in-one Splash Math Grades K-5 app since it makes it easier to go back to lower levels for when Henry needs to review his basics. 

Splash Math is available online via their website and on the App Store.
