Review: My first weighing exercises HD

Practise counting by using weight. Balance fruit and weights on the scales to complete the puzzles.

View on the App Store: My first weighing exercises HD - Alexandre Minard

Features of My first weighing exercises HD:

  • Practise mathematics in a different way.
  • Learn about ounces and pounds.
  • Understand the concept of weight.
  • The freestyle mode means that young children can play.
  • Practise the art of using scales.
There are 3 modes within this weighing game.  The first 2 modes are designed to assist with counting and weighing and have 3 levels of difficulty each.

Your child has 10 mathematical puzzles to solve in each level of these modes.  At the end their score sheet appears so you can see how well they understand the concept.

In mode 1 the fruit is already on the scale and your child must add the correct weights or combination of  weights to ensure exact balance.  In mode 2 the weights are on the scale, you must add the fruit. 

In the first 2 levels of Modes 1 and 2 the total weight has been calculated and displayed.  In level 3 your child must add up the totals in order to balance the weights, this greatly assists with mental arithmetic. 

You can only select 4 objects for the scale at any one time but you can use two or more of the same fruits or weights or ensure balance. 

Weight can be calculated in pounds or ounces. 

In Mode 3 there is free play.  Your younger child can have fun putting fruit and weights on the scale without any mathematical objective.
