Butterfly Math is a popular math app focusing on the 4 operations using colorful graphics and fun bonus levels that keeps children interested in practicing their math facts.
With over 150,000 education apps in the Apple and Google app stores, it is difficult for educators and parents to differentiate among the apps because the descriptions and reviews provide little insight on the apps instructional quality.

Butterfly Math‘s rating places it amongst the top 10% of over 3,500 educational apps reviewed to date by Balefire Labs.
During the review process, apps are evaluated based on several criteria: instructional design, such as providing feedback for correct answers and mastery-based instruction; usability design, such as reporting with actionable data and utilizing age-appropriate reading level; and additional data, such as whether the app has push notifications or links to social media.

Mahon, Ed.D., president and founder, Balefire Labs, Inc. “Our rating process makes it easier for parents and teachers to choose credible apps because it provides objective reviews based on a scientifically-validated evaluation criteria.”
