Hi Dawne, I was wondering if you could help me locate some homeschool parents who might be interested in providing some feedback on a new version of Box Drop Math. It’s an app designed to help kids master math facts but in a fun game environment. We provide a mastery graph as a way for parents to track progress and there is an option to select specific numbers to focus on. I’d really like to hear the opinions of some home schooling parents though, to see what other features might be helpful. The addition component is free and I’d be happy to provide promo codes to anyone who would like to test out the other operations as well. Thanks very much for your consideration. Here’s a link to the iOS version (it’s also on Google Play and Amazon): https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/box-drop-math-addition-game/id1020536399?mt=8
