FREE for limited time – Squeebles Maths Bingo, a super-cute, educational app for practicing math facts. The Maths Monster has scared away all of the Squeeble customers from Ruby’s ice cream parlor. And if that wasn’t bad enough… he has stolen all of her ice cream ingredients! Kids help Ruby recover her ingredients (and customers) by solving addition, subtraction, multiplication, & division problems in a fun bingo game. One kids have earned back some of the ingredients, they create ice cream concoctions using over 200 unique ingredients. The Squeeble customers rate each ice cream treat. Kids will find out that some of the Squeebles like some very strange flavors and/or combinations – like brussel sprout ice cream with sugar mice or orange ice cream with pea soup sauce. There are over 3 million combinations! The app is perfect for the classroom because an unlimited number of players can be registered. The app keeps track of stats (number correct & percentage) for each player. In the settings, teachers/parents can differentiate the level of difficulty for individual players. Ice ream ratings are shown as decimals or whole numbers – opening up opportunities to have kids collect & report data. Wouldn’t it be fun to have kids construct bar graphs of the results? It’s no wonder that Squeebles games have been featured on BBC Radio, in The Daily Telegraph, The Observer, and The Guardian. It’s fun, educational, and standards-based!
