Motion Math Zoom
An animal adventure through the world of numbers!
Motion Math Zoom (for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) features the most interactive number line of all time. The intuitive pinch gesture on iDevices allows kids to navigate among concrete objects (animals) that represent abstract numbers: from dinosaurs in the thousands to amoebas in the thousandths.
Motion Math Zoom is a fun, engaging way for elementary school children to master one of the foundational pillars of math: place value.
