Bugs: theyâ€™re creepy and crawly. Aliens: mysterious and fearsome. But bugs and aliens no longer have to be a source of fright and terror for your kids now that TotsMobile has launched BugMath, a fun and educational iPhone game that teaches children ages 3 to 6 fundamental math concepts. BugMath stands apart from all other kidâ€™s math games in the App Store since it teaches kids math via Singaporeâ€™s math principles.
Since the math curriculum of Singapore consistently ranks in the top three of curricula worldwide, TotsMobile incorporated the countryâ€™s counting, addition, and subtraction principles into the game. In particular, BugMath teaches fundamental math concepts in a graduated format, beginning with counting with the aid of visual cues and progressing on to show the correlation of these objects to numbers and wordsâ€”and later on, number ordering and basic addition and subtraction.
â€śBugMath approaches mathematics from different anglesâ€”particularly through a story that engages and the systematic practice of math skills through ease of repetition,â€ť says Yvone Foong, CEO of Zixxe Pte. Ltd., the parent company of the TotsMobile brand. â€śThe goal is to boost kidsâ€™ confidence while having fun! Zixxe, under the TotsMobile brand, will continue to produce an exciting array of content for kids on various mobile platforms. â€ť
BugMath introduces children to Ug-ug, a friendly young alien who loves math. Ug-ug accidentally crash-lands on the mystifying planet of Aliennz, which is completely inhabited by bugs. Kids can help Ug-ug escape his buggy foes in BugMathâ€™s five games by utilizing their counting, addition, subtraction, and memory skills.
Young children can start their adventure with Ug-Ug in the Counting Game, which teaches double-digit numbers. Then kids can move on to Big & Small, a game with bugs of varying sizes that must be sorted sequentially or in reverse order. Thereâ€™s also Plus Minus Bugs, which aids kids in learning basic addition and subtraction. In Bug Attack, a voiceover will count the number of bugs the user zaps, while in Matching, the user will use their memory skills to pair up the hidden bugs. In every game, Ug-ug is the perfect alien buddy to help your child enhance his or her math skills!
