No other math app offers such a powerful educational experience in one package. Theresa Gorey, Learning SpecialistCrackers and Goo is a math game designed by a math educator with the goal of teaching children critical thinking, a skill that elevates thinking beyond memorization into the realm of analysis and logic. Developing critical thinking skills in children is a major objective of the new Common Core standards.
