The latest in the series from Les Trois Elles math apps presents four activity sections of the time-tested Montessori tools of the multiplication board, the stamp game, the bead frame and the magic slate, each employing the Montessori place value color coding system: green for units, blue for tens, and red for hundreds.

The Tool Box area offers large number composition, multiplication tables and multiples tables. The Play Box games are missing digit, whiz quiz and bubble games. (If it's been a while since you were in the 4th grade, some of this is a humbling experience. The bead frame will make you feel a lot better.)

Activities are clearly and simply stated and presented; no frivolous bells, whistles, or jokes. When a user correctly solves a problem, the reward is the answer, a small almost silent start burst, a few reward points and another problem. Correct answers earn points that can be used to "purchase" Monster body parts. If a user struggles, there are no whiny offers to try again.

Parental notes and an "advanced settings" for teachers are offered.
