“My Dear Aunt Sally” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its popular segment, AppWatch, that takes a look at the latest and coolest mobile applications and mobile services on the market. Andrew Tropeano, host of AppWatch, shared with viewers how the app can help children strengthen their math and problem solving skills.
My Dear Aunt Sally is an educational application for android and apple devices. The name, My Dear Aunt Sally, is a word play on the well-known mnemonic device ‘please excuse my dear aunt sally’ that helps students remember the mathematical order of operations – parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction.
The goal of the app is to help strengthen math skills among children by getting them to create an equation circle where the numbers on the top and bottom equal each other. Students can practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponents, and because there are multiple levels of difficulty, the game is suitable for students from second grade through eighth grade.
Game players are rewarded with humorous videos that feature ‘Aunt Sally’ in precarious situations. The game is great for reinforcing number sense, order of operations, and problem solving. For parents that want to strengthen their child’s math skills with a fun and educational app, head to the iTunes store or the Google Play store and search for My Dear Aunt Sally.
