Classroom Considerations

This app is part of the series of apps by the same developer, including MultiFlow (integer multiplication skills) and DivisionFlow (integer division skills including remainders).

Pros

  • Multiple ways to practice addition and subtraction skills
Cons

  • This app does not have a setting that allows you to turn the timer off and just practice for accuracy
  • Addition and subtraction can not be practiced separately
  • No space available to write out problem, if needed
  • Only limited ability to control the numbers one can practice. (The easy, normal, hard settings control the numbers used.)
