Fun Ways To Learn: Math Apps & Games

While you’re cruising in the car with the kids and they are fully secured in their child seats, what do you do to keep them entertained? Besides the occasional snack and the family’s car songs repertoire, the kids will probably start to be cranky if they don’t have something to be kept busy with. Enter iPads, tablets and sometimes phones, every parent’s trusty solution! Instead of just letting them watch cartoons, you can also get the kids to use Math apps and play games on the tablets that help them grasp more concepts and practice their mathematics! Here are some apps that we think the kids will benefit from:

1. Number Frames
This app helps kids structure numbers into five, ten, twenty, and one hundred. They can use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range. The cute animals and colourful icons used in the frames will definitely attract the kids’ inquisitive eyes.
Free for iOS iPad only, Chrome, and other web browsers

2. Number Line
Number Line helps students visualize number sequences and demonstrate strategies for counting, comparing, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Choose number lines labelled with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, or negative numbers. More suitable for the kids aged 8 and above, this app is great for them to practice negatives, decimals and fractions.
