Factor Samurai

This action-based educational app requires students to use a sword to ‘slice’ numbers that fall down the screen.  The specific math concepts this app covers are multiplication and the identification of prime numbers.  The object is to slice numbers into their prime, but to not actually slice the prime numbers.  For example, they can slice the number 51 (to make 17 and 3), but they can’t slice those factors (because they’re prime numbers).  Three difficulty levels are available – grasshopper (easy), apprentice (medium), and master (hard).

For an app that only covers two skills, I find it to be quite pricey.  However, if price is not an issue for you and your child(ren) enjoy action apps, it would make an acceptable addition to your mobile device.
