King of Math Junior

King of Math Junior helps reinforce basic math facts, as well as teach fractions, geometry, and measuring concepts. Through short games, kids earn points that move their character through the ranks of medieval society, from farmer to bard and all the way up to king! One of this app’s main strengths is that it illustrates a single concept in different ways to reinforce understanding (think dice and number lines). Older kids, or more advanced math students, should check out the higher-level King of Math app for more
of a challenge.
