Osmo is an amazing company that has transformed the way educators use iPads in the classroom. Their interactive math game let students combine tangible manipulatives with a digital device. I was introduced to Osmo when it first came out and they sent me a device to try out. Now they have a brand-new app and toy called Osmo Numbers. Osmo Numbers turns math into an engaging, interactive experience that lets students explore number concepts. With real time feedback kids can learn from their mistakes and problem solve as they work to find the answer.
Interactive Math Game
Playing with Osmo is really a must see to believe experience. As you move the number tiles across a table the iPad registers them and connects your movements to the game. The object of this underwater-themed game is to release the fish captured in bubbles by combining the numbered tiles to reach a matching sum. Watch this video to see how Osmo Numbers works. Osmo addresses a handful of skills including math sense where students learn from trial and error and collaboration as kids work together on a shared screen.
