Motion Math, the pioneer of fun, interactive mobile math games, is announcing the availability of Pro versions of its award-winning learning games for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch – Motion Math: Hungry Fish Pro, Motion Math: Zoom Pro, and Motion Math: Wings Pro.

“Teachers are some of our best customers because they see how our games grow conceptual understanding,” said Jacob Klein, Motion Math co-founder. “Now they can get all our products through Apple’s Volume Purchase Program and help their students build a stronger number sense.”
Motion Math’s games leverage the intuitive touchscreen and accelerometer of iDevices for direct interactions with abstract mathematical concepts, enabling learners to play with numbers.
