“I’m a teacher of 4th and 5th graders and this is one of the best math apps I’ve found…I’ve watched kids who have struggled mightily with decimals suddenly understand how the whole system works…Every classroom should have this app.” – Michelle Martin, 4th/5th grade teacher

Master numbers, negatives, and decimals with this animal adventure! Motion Math Zoom features the world’s most interactive number line – kids have a blast exploring numbers as they gain a deep understanding of place value.
FUN NUMBER LINE EXPLORATION
Motion Math Zoom’s zoomable, stretchable number line is missing some numbers – it’s up to the player to put numbers back where they belong. The new game uses animals to represent abstract numbers: from dinosaurs in the thousands down to amoebas in the thousandths.
