Verdict

Bamboo Math by Bamboo Learning, Inc is a math learning-oriented interactive skill with 5 different levels ranging from easy to hard mathematical questions. The mathematical challenges the skill offers are for children aged 5 to 12 but open to adults as well. The skill offers children the convenience to try out difficult levels that cover the 4 arithmetic operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

The Bamboo Math skill offers children the means to master the art of mental math calculation through the choicest variety of simple to complex numerical problems. Striving to impart fun and engaging experience for both beginners and advanced learners, the skill offers an exciting mix of numerical and word problems using an endearing mix of animals and objects. The focus on enhancing the learning experience is evident from the inclusion and efficient use of visual aids. One of the advantages that tops the list is that users can easily shift between levels of difficulty by using the voice commands “easier” or “harder”. The same applies for switching to a different operation by saying “addition”, “subtraction”, “multiplication”, or “division”. As for level 5, the questions seem a bit challenging and tough to crack. On a different note, if by chance, a child happens to give some random word instead of the answer, do not feel discouraged as the skill has been designed to repeat the question in such an event. All the more, what’s commendable is that for harder problems, you can ask for “more time” or say “repeat” to have the skill rerun the problem again. 

Being utterly fun and educative in nature, the VOGO Voice team is inspired to score the Bamboo Math skill with a 4.75 out of 5 stars based on our review criteria.
