Magic numbers: interactive stamp set – Educo
The Educo magic numbers interactive stamp set is part of the new connected learning collection which combines a physical product with a learning app on a tablet. The wooden blocks in the set work with the body’s static electricity, which makes them 100% electricity and battery-free. The sensors creating interaction with the tablet are made from flexible material, and this they are safe to be used on a tablet screen.
Magic numbers develops an understanding of numbers by counting, comparing, adding and subtracting. By means of the tablet, the exercises are supported by images and sounds. All exercises can be played unsupervised.
Magic numbers can be played on different levels as a distinction is made between the numbers up to and including 5, 10 and 20. Children who do not fully comprehend numbers, can start by counting, comparing and dividing numbers up to and including 5, and then proceed to work with the higher numbers. The grouping-, adding, – subtracting- and missing sign – exercises contain the numbers up to and including 20.
The bottom of the included wooden storage box has pictures printed on it, which allows the children to store the stamps in their right places themselves.
