LeapFrog Enterprises (http://www.leapfrog.com)
has released its Number Rumble math game for the
iPhone and iPod touch. It’s available for US$2.99
at the Apple App Store

The first of several planned LeapFrog iPhone
learning games, Number Rumble for iPhone and iPod
touch users lets six to ten-year-old kids shake,
tap and spin their way to math equation practice
via the multi-touch user interface.

With the Number Rumble game, kids can practice
for quizzes, challenge friends and replay games
According to Nancy MacIntyre, executive vice
president, product, innovation and marketing,
LeapFrog, the Number Rumble game helps kids
memorize numbers-one-through-twelve math basics,
through three modes of play:

° “Learn It” mode lets kids choose an operation
(addition, subtraction, multiplication or
division), spin the number wheels to create a
math problem, then tap the equals sign to see and
hear the answer.

° In “Quiz Time,” kids test their skills by
spinning the number wheels to create a problem,
then shake the iPhone to select an answer.

° “Random Quiz” lets kids practice all four
operations at once, simply shaking the iPhone to
see “fill-in-the-blank”-style questions, such as
“12 + 8 = ?” or “? ÷ 9 = 11.”
