Fuzzy Numbers: Pre-K Number Foundation

Fuzzy Numbers is an evidence-based early math app designed to give preschoolers a head start in math. The app helps children leverage their approximate number system (ANS), a cognitive system responsible for estimating quantity without counting.

Two papers in the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology (Park et al., 2016Wang et al., 2016) show that children who play digital ANS games demonstrate better math performance (on tests of counting, number identification, addition, etc.) when compared to control groups.

Here's a summary of the research and development of the app on the Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop blog.
