Cuilo says:

Geometry is by far the most interesting thing about math!

Theonedr says:

My daughter would love it. Her favorite area is multiplication, but she is having some difficulties with division.

Christopher Smith says:

This would be great for my 3rd grade daughter. My favorite math area was geometry, but hers would be counting-on-fingers. #MathFail

Rballecer77 says:

I have a 3 year old and I'm looking forward to this app. Subtraction and addition

castro719 says:

My daughter's least favorite subject is math, all of it. My favorite IS math. Hurts my heart.

oagrait says:

My favorite area of math is algebra, and the least favorite is geometry.

Justin O'Hara says:

My favorite area is algebra and my least favorite was geometry.

RocketScienceMom says:

Math is my favorite subject because I needed a lot of it to get to where I play in my day job. Hint, it's the first part of my name RocketScienceMom. :)

Will says:

my favorite is geometry cause algebra is crazy

Tbutler81 says:

I freaking love Algebra.. and binary, I think numbers are fun, and my wife thinks Im crazy

Mellarsonl828 says:

My son is a lot smarter than me in mathematics. I liked simple algebra in school, I very much dislike geometry. He loves all of it and I hope he continues to have that kind of zeal for mathematics and science that he does! He's fairly creative too, so maybe he can be the Steve Jobs of his generation - oh, as a parent I can dream, can't I!? :)

briankeith513 says:

My favorite subject in math is Algebra, because it is the foundation for most other math disciplines, and it truly helps you learn to think analytically. My kids would love to try this app.

Pnut says:

I love Algebra, but I would love to get this for my son!

jmmayo says:

I'm terrible at math so my favorite is adding and subtracting. This app could help me develope a new love for math.

Suedupuy says:

I enjoy algebra. Dislike geometry. Would love to win for my 4 young kiddos.

Geek_Mistress says:

My favorite areas of math are/were Calculus and Differential Equations. I'm a geeky engineer after all. My son (going to 2nd grade) LOVES math and my little girl starts kinder. Both love to play on my iPhone and iPad and for sure would enjoy this "game" you know - it's not learning if you're having fun ;-)

Kareemnosseir says:

I like algebra and I am taking geometry this year. I've heard that calculus is interesting as well.

dbng says:

As a chip designer, I think in binary. But I'm a closet algebrist.

Sben20 says:

I love Geometry. Everything just fits together! Of course I teach 6-8th grad, so I do not get to dig into the heart of Geometry as much as I would like!

coonebjr says:

Me English is better than me arithmetic so I would love this app fir practice.

Tim says:

Game theory :) I'm a nerd.

Dave Nelson says:

I like algebra and trigonometry. I think my daughters (starting 1st and 3rd grades) would love this app!

APipad says:

I've always enjoyed geometry, and I can't wait to get this in my kids hands.

KekoaLani says:

I love teaching geometry, especially when 4th graders learn how to use a compass to make geometric shapes. I am tutoring a young girl right now that has trouble remembering simple basic math facts, but can use a compass with ease and has done some incredible art work! Thanks for the chance to win a code. This app sounds great.

Rob says:

I love calculus, algebra, and trigonometry. I hope my toddler daughter will love math like I do!
