### App Store Description

The llamas are running wild! Can you untangle this farm fiasco?

Help kids understand the tricky topic of multiplication by solving visual problems.

Kids build number fluency, develop strategies for multiplication, and learn properties of operations as they sort rowdy animals into arrays of different sizes.

Arrays (grids with equal rows and columns) are a classic thinking tool used to model, investigate, and build multiplication facts. They are also a key part of 3rd grade math.

*** 24 puzzles for free. One in-app purchase unlocks remaining puzzles. ***

CONTENT AND FEATURES
Llama Drama contains 3 learning pathways - structured sequences of mathematical problems that get more challenging as learners progress.

All the key concepts are clearly explained using voice over and animations. Each problem includes supporting instructional materials and hints if learners get stuck.

THREE TOPICS
1) Animal Arrays
Play with arrays! Learners connect equal rows with multiplication problems and discover that different arrays can be created with the same amount of animals. Kids split arrays and add them together, setting a foundation for understanding and using the distributive property.

2) Multiplying Llamas
Use arrays to solve multiplication problems and solve missing factor problems (e.g. 5 x ? = 15) while practicing the commutative property. Explore number facts and make your own arrays.

3) Divide and Capture
Use arrays to solve division problems, reinforcing the link between multiplication, missing factors, and division.

KEY FACTS
√ For kids aged 6-9
√ One in-app purchase behind parental gate
√ Meets Common Core Standards
√ Structured sequences of problems
√ Unlock the fun story as you progress
√ Hints and instructional content for each problem
