Math Summoner [text]

Link to the App Store

What I liked I really enjoyed the combination of a theme of mysticism and magic blended with math practice. I appreciate that the developer created something designed to keep kids interested enough to build upon basic math skills and geometry through a reward system that isn't just for the sake of entertainment. A lot of thought went into
Improvements I would like for there to be more of a story behind the magic of Math Summoner, and I only made it through a couple of levels with my daughter, but a story might help engagement. For kids who are already strong at basic math, the app might take too much time to progress through the levels to keep it interesting. It would be great if there was a way to be promoted ahead a level or two by taking a quiz.
General review Overall, Math Summoner, offers a great way to practice math skills for elementary age kids. The opportunity to work on principles of geometry is not something I've found in other apps. However, this app is for kids who have already mastered basic math. For young children just starting to learn how to add and subtract, the app will get too frustrating when they can't earn enough mana points to make anything happen.
