App Overview

Squeebles Maths Bingo app helps young players to gain fluency in the basic math operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Each game is set up as a bingo game where the player must mark five numbers in a row on the bingo card. Traditional bingo rules apply; either get five vertically, horizontally, or diagonally on the card. Players press the correct answer. Incorrect answers lower the overall score. 

As with all Squeebles math apps, math fluency practice is mixed in with incentives and badges that can be used to play a game. In this app, a player builds up Squeeble customers and ice cream ingredients they can use to run the ice cream parlor. Trying to figure out the favorite flavor combinations of the Squeeble can be tricky!
