Child-friendly and didactically seamless learning apps for Maths.
With appolino, bright minds between the ages of five and ten learn reading, writing and arithmetic. As these smart apps adapt precisely to the skills level of each child, exercises are great fun. The learning level is raised step by step at each pupil’s individual pace, allowing learning targets to be met.
One swipe on the tablet and appolino is activated, ready to start learning. An innovative method to exploit the potentials of tablets for proactive learning. A new style for making knowledge understandable. Intuitive operation encourages independent, motivated learning. Newly acquired knowledge is sustainably retained.
In an active learning process, children enhance their skills in language and mathematics. All apps have a modular structure and combine the best elements of theoretical and practical learning. The attractively designed educational content is oriented towards the curriculum of the first school years.
The appolino apps have been designed specifically for tablets and combine the fun of learning with optimal learning effect.
Simple or multiplayer version?
All of appolino applications are available in two versions: a single-user version and a multi-user version. The content of both versions is exactly the same; they differ solely in the number of users who follow and manage their progress.
In appolino® Number & Quantity, numbers are allocated, built up and complemented. In practical exercises, differentiated internal images are created in the number ranges up to 20, up to 100 and up to 1000. These form the basis for acquiring a solid understanding of operations. Clever learning and task guidance ensure that the children are selectively directed from the operational level to the symbol level of the numbers.
In appolino® Plus & Minus, addition and subtraction are practiced in the number ranges up to 20, up to 100 and up to 1000. Learning and exercising are via blocks, number rows and place-value boards. Symbols language reduced to essentials is an aid in this respect. The numbers pyramids graphically combine addition and subtraction. This actively encourages and promotes the acquisition of flexible solutions strategies.
In appolino® Multiplication & Division, comprehension is built up and internalised, without simply drilling multiplication tables. Multiplications and divisions can be illustratively solved on the numbers row and the dot array right up to 1000. Relationships become visible and clever solutions options are encouraged. Riddles of the «numbers maze» challenge pupils to have fun using their multiplication and division knowledge.
Using the appolino® arithmetic box, pupils can set their own tasks and create individual solution routes. Irrespective of whether 7 + 9 = ? , 473 – 199 = ?, 7 x 9 = ? or 144 : 12 = ? is involved, a number of strategy options will provide the correct answer. The idea is to imaginatively use blocks, number rows, points fields or place-value boards. The appolino arithmetic box is not a simple pocket calculator, but rather an interactive computation machine.
All apps from the appolino® series have been created and designed by an interdisciplinary team of teachers, didactic specialists, media didactic specialists, programmers and graphic artists supervised by the Swiss teaching materials publisher Lehrmittelverlag St. Gallen. This approach is essential for learning apps that are ideally matched to the needs of children, resulting in optimal learning results combined with considerable fun during the learning process.
