The Hungry fish is an attractive and calculative app that builds up a strong number sense amongst kids encouraging the mastery of basic addition and subtraction math facts through its challenging levels keeping the kids involved to practice math skills. Hereâ€™s how it goes: You are given a fish that can only eat certain numbers at certain times. Very young kids only need to match the correct number to the number on the fish. In higher levels kids will need to add numbers together to make sure the fish can eat themÂ (6=1+5, 3+3, 4+2, 6+0). The highest levels include larger numbers, subtraction, negative numbers and a faster pace (-14= -3+-11, -7+-7 etc). If you donâ€™t feed your fish, it gets smaller. If you feed your fish enough it gets bigger and earns life points, getting you special awards, which add to the fun and interest of the kids as they get to customize the colour and fins of the fish.
