Making Math Fun with the Nickelodeon Team Umizoomi: Math Racer App

Getting my son to do his homework, particularly math, is like pulling teeth. Sound familiar? He rushes through just to get it done and move on to something more fun.  Nickelodeon recently launched a great new educational math app, Team Umizoomi: Math Racer, inspired by the first preschool series to focus entirely on math, Team Umizoomi.

TEAM UMIZOOMI

 

The race car themed app develops early math skills through an immersive number-based curriculum that includes number identification, counting, addition, subtraction and more. Complete with six different levels of difficulty, each curricular activity is defined and integrated in to the app’s interactive racing theme.

Kids can customize their own vehicles in the Umi garage, or choose from one of their favorites: UmiCar, Shark Car, Umi Taxi or Ninja Car. With a simple swipe, kids can control their car as they race around the track collecting coins, avoiding obstacles and enjoying pit stop challenges that combine math curriculum with fun activities such as changing a tire or tuning up the engine. As kids complete each race, they will earn trophies and decorative car decals to customize their vehicle.
