Gozoa Play & Learn Math | fun educational kids app
iPad + Android kids app | educational maths app | ages 5-8 yrs.
If your kids didn’t have much fun with educational apps in the past as well, then you should definitely check out the fun Gozoa app – Play & learn math. Even us adults had a lot of fun whilst testing the app and kids most definitely did anyway.
The age recommendation by the app developer for this fun educational app is 5-8 years and we totally agree on that.
The secret of success in this fun educational game is the presentation of the learning contents. Even though the various exercises about the numbers 1-10 are already entertaining enough, they were additionally combined with a platform game. Kids do not only just finish one learning exercise after another, but instead, they need to find the exercises in this jump and run game first.
They actually play the game Gozoa, but who is Gozoa? Well we don’t really know either but one thing’s sure, you can practice your math with the friendly blue creature just perfectly. It’s probably best if you check the game out yourself in the following YouTube Trailer, to get to know Gozoa and it’s educational math adventure better.
One day, an evil villain has stolen the numbers in Gozoas world – well let’s gladly help by helping to find those missing numbers again.
So basically, this is how kids play and learn their way through the various platform world’s, whilst learning to count, calculate, draw and write numbers.
In the exercise with the friendly Dachshund, children need to complete the number sequence.
The painting by numbers and connecting numbers game is also great fun and educational.
We especially want to praise the learning exercises, where kids can learn to write numbers.
All exercises are based on the curriculum of the Scandinavian educational system, which has a particularly good reputation worldwide. Quote from the itunes Description:
The assignments in the app are based on the public school system for math in Scandinavia and were developed in collaboration with math teachers and children. GOZOA strikes a perfect balance between play and learning.
Yes, we totally agree. Kids are also able to use this app without being able to read, because of the perfect audio response.
Here is an overview of all the fantastic learning contents that were included in this awesome educational game.
• Recognize numbers up to 20
• Write numbers up to 9
• Sorting things based on shape and color
• Build up numeracy skills by connecting names of numbers, symbols, and quantity
• Addition by solving simple math problems
• Geometric shapes
• Symmetry and reverse images
• Conceptual knowledge (fewest/most, biggest/smallest, etc.)
• Adding up to 10
I don’t think we promised too much did we? Nevertheless, there are still two little suggestions from us.
Suggestions for improvements:
1. The app has already got a really pleasant and professional audio response, however, in some mini games there could be a lot more counting for our likes.
2. The jump-controls remind us a little of the popular game Angry Birds, where you have to pull back, but we would have preferred a normal jump button.
Nevertheless, these are only trivia things or perhaps a matter of taste. Even if we do wish for an alternative navigation (buttons) we cannot forgo our absolute Top rating (Editor’s choice award) – well we just like the scope, content and implementation too much.
Another thing is for sure, the Gozoa Play & Learn Math is not our last Gozoa app – now that we have tasted it’s brilliancy and because there are many other Gozoa apps available, we will definitely review those as well.
Here is another overview of some aspects:
+ awesome educational games
+ very comprehensive
+ brilliant audio response
+ Gozoa and his friends can be dressed up in the bonus area
+ many motivating elements
– We would prefer controls with direction keys and a jump button
– We want the narrator to count along more
This app is also available for free as a lite version, however with in-app purchases. The Full-version has no IAP. Even though we recommend you the full version, you could still use the free version perfectly for testing. We don’t really need to wish you fun or joy because you’re definitely gonna have it!
