Join your My Little Pony friends for high-flying adventures while putting a stop to Discord's latest tricks! On each adventure, harness the magic of mathematics to retrieve the Elements of Harmony and bring Equestria back into balance. Play four learning mini games that reinforce math skills like probability, measurement and more!
Adventure across Equestria to help Princess Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy recover the Elements of Harmony! First, use counting and part-whole relationships to help Applejack pack each Pony's saddle so she's balanced for her flight. Then take to air, using skill and smart timing to earn and collect stars--and new pony flight powers! Visit Rarity's shop to get upgrades and improve flight power!
On their journeys, the Ponies are challenged to use probability and mathematics to face off against Discord's doubles in learning mini-games. Choose the spinner that will move the pony farthest and fastest, and race until the end to win. Use problem-solving skills and knowledge of operations to identify the animated equations that solve word problems. Count apples and determine the probability that a certain color will fall from the tree. Once the Ponies have completed their six journeys, celebrate friendship and Pony Power!
"Early mathematical experiences are highly important for later academic achievement, and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic brings together foundational skills such as addition and subtraction with extremely important but less familiar skills like probability--one of the most useful branches of mathematics. Studying probability can help children develop critical thinking skills and make informed decisions about the probability that surrounds them in the real world on a daily basis." - Jody L., LeapFrog Learning Expert

Viewing subsets as parts of a whole, and learning descriptive language, such as fifty percent (50%), is important for understanding the relationship between numbers.
Children learn to count and compare sets of objects.
Children begin to understand multiplication as repeated addition, and memorize multiplication facts to allow quick solutions to complex problems.
Addition and Subtraction
Children learn to add and subtract quantities from each other, sometimes with objects, and sometimes with symbolic equations such as 4 + 3 = __ or 4 - 3 = __.
Probability is the chance of something happening and comes under the branch of math known as statistics. Young children will learn about probability through real-world examples and eventually be taught how to use math to work out the likelihood of something happening or being true.
