Educational Potential
Make Me Ten is a relaxing math game in which you have to count up the numbers to reach ten. Once you have filled the progress bar, your goal will shift up by one point. Now you must make 11, and after that 12, 13, 14, and so forth. Set at least 5 target numbers side by side and they will vanish to clear more space. Don’t shoot numbers into the circle at random, because if the circle gets too full you will lose the game and you’ll have to start over again.

As in the description of this Apps it is written Make Me Ten is dedicated to relax, wind down yourself and also to hone math and counting skills. No time pressure, possible to take as long as it is needed to make sure creating the best decisions – all this gives opportunities for achieving educational aims in playful way also.

I found this app a little bit boring, because all you have to do is to add the numbers in the same monotonous way. In addition to this, the numbers are sometimes combined at random to achive the wanted result, making it too easy for the student. Quite poor graphics too.
