Almost perfect
I'm a third grade teacher and had my students use this app (along with the many other awesome Dan Russel-Pinson apps) to extend their learning in math. I love how you can have students practice their basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts, and can even do the extended 2 by 2 facts while writing on the pad to help you figure problems out! I also love the ability to choose different "missions" to practice different areas of math varying in level of difficulty. The only thing that could make this better has to do with how students are able to solve the different missions when their rocket is in space and they need to click on the different stars for correct answers. I have noticed several students just quickly tapping every number, shape etc. in sight rather than carefully clicking the correct answers. I thought when they clicked wrong answers their rocket would descend more quickly than when you answer only correctly, however when I tried it I was able to get a gold medal on counting by 10s even though I clicked every star in sight. So the one thing that would make this app perfect is to make the rocket descend back to earth more quickly whenever a student clicks a wrong answer, and maybe after three wrong answers descend to earth until the next launch.

Kids love it!
My children are all enjoying building their rockets and launching them! The only problem is they all want to play it all the time. Time will tell if it actually helps them learn their facts...
