# Fun Problem Solving Using Math with Peg and Cat

Today’s app is a fun problem solving app and kids have to learn and use math skills to solve the problems. It is brought to you by PBS kids and is based off the new popular show: Peg + Cat. Peg + Cat is a show produced by the Fred Roger’s company and is targeted at teaching simple mathematics skills to preschool and early school age children (ages 3 to 6). The show is great at teaching children problem solving skills, basic math concepts, and shape recognition. This app also has all those great features and takes learning a step further by offering an interactive way to engage with Peg and her Cat. Mathematics is a fundamental part of education and this show makes learning fun and engaging for all early learners.

In the Tree Problem app, the cat is stuck on the tree, and kids need to help get Cat out of the tree and across various obstacles to reach Peg. By utilizing problem solving skills, kids will use various forms of math skills to reunite cat with Peg. Skills used in this app include shape categorizing, stacking, length matching, and basic cause and effect.

This game offers six different worlds: a farm, the South Pole, or the Broadway! Each world has 5 increasingly difficult levels, giving your child a total of 30 levels! The app provides many motivating challenges and obstacles for kids to work through, providing hours of fun and stimulation.

My son was instantly excited about this app because he is familiar with the show. Children find comfort in familiarity and repetition; both of which can be found in this creative problem solving game. This app provided my 3 year old with just enough challenge to keep him stumped and engaged, but not hard enough that he didn’t want to accomplish the puzzles on his own. I recommend this app to anyone looking for a fun educational iPad app for their preschooler.

Tree Problem is available on iPad. It is \$2.99 on App Store.

This sounds so cool for kids! I know my youngest is not to keen on the Peg + Cat Show itself, but she does like the theme of it. Most of the language is too fast for her to grasp but if I sat with her using this app I am sure she’d be interested in it ;D
PS–comments on mobile are working Great now! Happy Spring Time!
