Children can use the 3rd Grade Splash Math app to play math-related games based on a Common Core-aligned third grade curriculum after downloading the app from the Apple App Store. The app is available for iPad, iPod and iPhone as of January 2016 and is geared toward children ages 6 to 8.
The 3rd Grade Splash Math app includes 16 chapters of interactive underwater-themed math games and activities for children to play at home or in a classroom setting. Children earn prizes called super-splashies and praise from the super-crab when they complete tasks successfully. Real-time reports monitoring children's progress are available for parents and educators to access.
The app's self-paced games cover topics such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Children can also choose games that teach other math concepts including fractions, measurement and decimals. The games and activities aim to help children to improve their math knowledge and skills, as well as practice for standardized testing. The games are designed to be fun to encourage children to want to play them.
The award-winning Splash Math app is available in seven versions for students in kindergarten through fifth grade, including one that covers content from grades one to five. There are both free and paid versions available.
