– This Math Word Problem App Shows Kids How! –

VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA, March 3, 2015 — Happy Frogs Apps announces the release of Math Word Problems – Step by Step, an app that helps children understand and solve math word problems.

Unique on the app store, this app helps kids understand HOW to do math word problems step-by-step. Starting with the absolute basics, by the end players know how to interpret and complete one-step math word problems using addition and subtraction.

Once a child firmly establishes this skill, they are well prepared for understanding more challenging word problems that are a core component of math from Grade 2 onwards.

Tested with typical and special needs children, Math Word Problems is designed to increase motivation and keep children engaged. Math processing skills are built incrementally through a game-like format with a fun and engaging rewards system. New levels are unlocked only when they master new skills.

With content designed by professional teachers and researchers, users are assured of many hours of fun-filled, skill-appropriate training. To ensure fluency in the skill acquisition, advanced levels include timers.

Janine Toole, founder of Happy Frog Apps, has this to say about the app: “Unlike other apps, our Math Word Problems app steps kids through the process of understanding the problem and reaching a solution.  Each step is incremental and kids won’t even realize how much they are learning. It’s a must for any kid in Grade 1 or 2 or later struggling learners.”

Math Word Problems –  Step by Step includes:

• Incremental and guided learning for less frustration and embarrassment
• Fun and engaging Rewards Center
• App supports up to 10 players and includes extensive reporting for teacher/therapist use
• Content designed by professional educators

Pricing and Availability

Math Word Problems –  Step By Step is available now in a free and paid edition for iOS.  The free edition includes 4 levels for a single user.  Additional users and levels are available with in-app purchases.  The School Edition has no in-app purchases.
