Numbler is one of several apps created by BrainingCamp. I came across Numbler over a year ago and it immediately reminded me of Scrabble. Numbler is currently $0.99, but there is a Numbler Free edition if you want to check it out first.
To start, you must create a new game. You can play offline against the "computer" or another person. If you play against the "computer", you can select the difficulty. You can also play online using the Game Center. Check with your school/district policy before letting students play online games within this app.
The object of Numbler is to create number sentences using the numbers and operations provided. Once you have created your number sentence and clicked on "play", player 2 will have a turn. The number sentences do not have to be 1+1=2, they can be something like 5+4=13-2 .. You just need to have the titles to create it.
This is a great addition to your math app folder for students who understand the four basic operations. Just like with Scrabble, the players have to think about what number sentence they plan to create.
Do you have this app on your iPad? If so, share your thoughts!
