MathBlaster HyperBlast

Price: Free!
Grade Recommendation: 1st and up
Subject: Math
Specific Skill: Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division
Levels: 3
Players: 1
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both

This app provides the best of both worlds for children - playing a fun and interactive game while also learning! Students travel through a simulated tunnel, blasting targets and dodging obstacles along the way. Every so often, they have to stop to solve a series of mathematical equations in order to continue.

There are 6 mathematical topics to choose from for each game:
- Addition
- Subtraction
- Addition/subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division
- Multiplication/division

The game is aesthetically-pleasing; the graphics are quite impressive (so is the audio). Users tilt the iPad (or iPod Touch) to steer through the tunnel - making it excellent for the kinesthetic learner. This game is highly recommended!
