MW-IconIntroduction and Overview

Now fully optimised for the retina display on an iPad, this App is a fun way to learn about weighing and balancing. This App is designed for younger children aged 2+. Working first with an adult, children can select from a range of objects to use, including animals and birds, blocks and bricks as well as different weights and measures.

MWAppImagesWebThere are four challenges:

  • Challenge 1 - To select either a heavy or light object in response to the question.
  • Challenge 2 - To select either a heavy or light object in response to the question, checking the result on the digital scales.
  • Challenge 3 - To balance the weights displayed by removing objects on traditional scales.
  • Challenge 4 - To make the digital scales weigh the same by removing objects.

AppStoreBadge100x200aThe App is intuitive to use - tap to select the target object in response to the text prompt. After initial learning with an adult, younger children can then progress to independent learning.

Within the App, settings are provided to:

  • Switch the sound effects ON/OFF
  • Switch the snapshot function ON/OFF
  • Set the number of tasks in the challenges (range from 3 to 6 tasks)
  • Enter the child's name (ideal with groups of children)

Using the snapshot function, images can be copied into the photo album and shared, or can be sent by email as an attachment. Depending on the privacy settings, screenshots can also be saved into the iPad photo album .

The screen shots displayed opposite show three of the four challenges in progress (click an image to enlarge):
