Check out these 5 apps that cover a variety of maths topics for a range of ages!

6th Grade Math Common Core


Revise and practise many topics of maths in this comprehensive app. Instant feedback and the option to have results emailed to a parent’s or teacher’s email address lets children improve and adults monitor progress.

Available on iTunes.



Learn & Fun for Kids is a collection of mini-games for early learners. Literacy, numeracy, colour recognition and problem solving are all covered in one form or another in this free advertisement supported app. Considering its targeted age range, the app would benefit from some spoken instructions for each of the mini-games as it isn’t always immediately obvious how to play them.

Available on Google Play.

  • Interesting post. If I may, I would like to add another tool which is very useful for e-learning. It may found online but it exists as an app as well. It’s called GEOGEBRA. On our site , teachers love to use it as it is a great help for student from 10 or 11 years old to learn and train in geometry, algebra and calculation. I strongly recommend it !

    Best regards
