Patrick's Math Tasks for Android
More About Patrick's Math Tasks App
Patrick's Math Tasks Description: The fun way to train math. The app is designed for children in 2nd grade elementary school. It was created after three months of home-schooling and dozens of downloaded math-worksheets. The intention was to replace the worksheets by an easy to use app that feels like a game.
The app features tasks to train the multiplication table (1x1), addition and subtraction, double and halve tasks. Those who like a challenge can try the puzzles. Find out which math-sign is missing, or solve combined tasks.
Entering solutions is designed in a way that is easy to use for elementary school students. The child can easily see which figure represents the tens and which the ones. Each entered number is also displayed verbally (e.g. 15=fifteen). The child can immediately see in case tens and ones were mixed.
The app gives direct feedback whether a task was solved correctly. In case of a wrong answer, the correct solution is displayed. The correct answer can also be displayed by tapping on the question mark symbol. Once all tasks have been answered, the ones that have been answered incorrectly are displayed again and can be solved again. This is repeated until all tasks are answered correctly. Once a task group has been solved, the child is awarded a star.
The 1x1 tasks are grouped by number (1s, 2s, 3s etc.). Addition and subtraction can be done by number range (until 10, until 20, until 100). You can choose whether the tasks should be within a 10 range and with or without ones regrouping.
The app won´t teach mathematics. It´s aim is to help getting practice in applying what was learned. All tasks are created based on random numbers. Your child can repeat already completed task-sets and will always see new tasks. In case you want to start the quest for the stars all over, you can clear all the earned stars with the according menu option.
The tasks are designed for second grade elementary school students. All schools work differently. It may well be, that your child has never encountered some of the tasks included in the app. Other tasks may be very familiar, still others may be handled in school at a later stage. The app neither covers all math tasks that are handled in second grade, nor is it guaranteed, that all tasks included in the app are actually covered in 2nd grade. If in doubt, ask your child or the math-teacher which of the tasks are appropriate for your child.
Also, the terms for describing tasks are different. In case you are accustomed to different descriptions than the ones used, just follow the guideline that the tasks are always ordered from easy to difficult.
The app is completely ad-free. You can work on a lot of tasks free of charge. You can unlock all tasks for a small one-off fee. This will give you access to all tasks permanently.
I‘d be happy to hear from you how the app is working for you. Suggestions and ideas of what further tasks should be included are also more than welcome. You can reach me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the tasks!
