iPad App Review: Balloon Pop Challenge - Math Learning Game

School has started for most and parents are out looking for as many Back-to-School bargains as possible. If you’re one of those parents, don’t forget to add an educational iPad app to your shopping list. Balloon Pop Challenge – The Math Learning Game is on sale for a buck!


Designed with the help of a teacher and student testers, Balloon Pop Challenge is geared toward elementary aged kids learning addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Students will be challenged as different colored balloons float upward on the screen at varying speeds. An equation (A + B = C, where C contains a number) is displayed at the top of the screen and each balloon contains an equation with numbers replacing A & B. Students must then determine whether or not the A + B in the balloons equals the C value at the top of the screen. If the equation in the balloon is correct, pop it with the tap of your finger. If not, let the balloon continue to float by and off the screen.

Each student's grades are tracked in their own grade book. See your high grade next to each challenge so you know how well you are doing. Practice challenges with increasing difficulty or perfect your favorite levels over and over again. .
