This is a really good app for a great introduction to measurement concepts. A virtual weighing scale, a good collection of fruits, option to use ounces or grams as weights make this app one of my favourite. It also develops the concept of how a weighing scale works, measurement, addition and problem solving skills.
There are 3 modes of play and the first and second mode have three levels each, whereas the third mode is free play. In mode 1, the first level has a fruit on the left plate and the child has to balance it by placing the correct weights to add up to the sum of the fruit. In the second level, there are a couple of fruits on the left plate and the child has to balance the weight on the right plate by adding the sum of the weight of the fruits. In level 3, the number of fruits on the left plate are three, increasing the level of difficulty.
In mode 2, the weights are given on the right plate and the child has to match that by adding fruits to balance the scale. In first level, there is a single weight, in second level, there are two weights on the right scale, the child has to add the weights and then balance the scale by adding the fruits. In third level it becomes more challenging as there are more than three weights on the right scale to be balanced with fruits.
The app is available on Google play for Rs 134 :
