DragonBox Numbers by WeWantToKnow AS is a fun and colorful way to learn about numbers, how they work and how to use them. WeWantToKnow AS are also the developers behind award-winning apps DragonBox Algebra 5+, DragonBox Algebra 12+ and DragonBox Elements. Children can play with cute characters called Nooms by stacking them, combining them, sorting them, slicing them or by just playing with them.
The app is divided into three games: Sandbox, Puzzles and Ladder.
The ‘Sandbox’ game lets children build up to certain numbers by adding up Nooms together. When you add a Noom to another Noom they change colour. Each number from 1 to 10 has a different Noom. When adding, slicing and placing the Nooms, a narrator explains the additions or subtractions and lets the child know what number they are at. Great for parents and teachers to explain basic maths.
The ‘Puzzles’ game lets children solve easy puzzles with Nooms. Once a puzzle is solved, coins are provided as a reward. After accumulating a number of coins, you can swap them for different shapes (numbers, animals, vehicles, microbes, food, etc .) which in turn can be solved by slicing and placing Nooms in designated shapes to obtain more reward coins.
The ‘Ladder’ game is slightly more complex than the other two games in that children need to build larger numbers with careful thought by adding, slicing and playing around with the Nooms provided until the number is reached.
This app has no ads, no in-app purchases and has a parents area protected by a simple number solving query. The parents area covers what your child will learn from the app, how to play with it and choice of language (English, Danish, French, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish). There is also an option to check your child’s progress and change player in the main menu. Be sure to create a DragonBox account to receive a story book about the Nooms and a DragonBox Numbers manual.
Even if the app is made for ages 6 to 8, my three-year-old loves playing with this app as it is fun, easy to use, colorful and she gets to learn about numbers without thinking about it. We love this fun and colorful app which makes mathematics a fun discipline. It is a great resource for parents and teachers to introduce maths to children and I definitely recommend it.
