UMIGO – You Make It Go | Fun Math for Kids
For years, two out of three of my children have needed a little extra help in math. One child is a math whiz but the other two struggle at times. Although all three kids get ‘A's' in math, for two kids, they need to keep their skills sharp and we do that with apps/websites that make math fun.
Our youngest child has struggled in school for a while. She is a good student and she tries hard but she needs a little extra help from time to time. Umigo gives her that help in a super fun way that keeps her asking again and again to watch another “appisode.” Anything that helps my child in a way that she truly enjoys and it makes learning fun is a total win in my book.
I want my daughter to be a lifelong learner, a critical thinker and a problem solver. Umigo helps her with that!

OUT THOUGHTS ON UMIGO
I am thrilled with Umigo. As the mother of three, I have tried workbooks, apps, computer games and so much more to keep my kids interested in math. Umigo makes it easy for kids to learn the math concepts that they need to know and use on a daily basis. But they make it fun, engaging and they have adorable characters who my daughter wants to see again and again. She asks for Umigo by name.
