In this app addition is illustrated by adding numbers of objects. If, for instance, the addition problem (which appears at the top of the screen) is 9 + 7 = ?, the student will be told to click on the blinking number 9. Nine apples will rise from the group at the bottom of the screen to the space under the 9. Now the second number (7) will be blinking and the student will be told to click on the blinking number. Seven apples will rise to the space under the 7. Now the student will be told to click on each of the apples under the numbers. The apples will be blinking in succession, and the student should click on each apple as it blinks. When the student clicks on the apple it gets a number and changes its color. When the student gets to the last apple (apple number 16 for this problem), the program voice tells the student to click the last apple again. The program voice states “Nine plus seven is sixteen” and 16 appears in the answer space. This program adds only single-digit numbers.
