★ Features ★
With Kopfnuss, you can practice basic arithmetics, the rule of three, percentage calculation, roman and square numbers and calculating basic sums of money.
Each exercise contains ten problems. Take your time solving them, there's no time limit. If you get one wrong, Kopfnuss will show you the correct answer and ask the same question later again.
Some exercises take approximations for an answer. These are identified by "≈" preceding the result. A 5% spread is perfect, a 10% spread is the permitted maximum.
You can choose the level of difficulty for all exercises. If hard is no more challenge to you, Kopfnuss will increase the level of difficulty. If your score withers, the problems get easier again.

Fun way to practice math
I am not gifted with numbers, but I have found this game to not only be a great way to review my basic math facts, but just a fun way to challenge myself. My kids (5 and 9) also enjoy this more than flash cards or verbal quizzes, but they usually only play it when I ask them to.
The best use I have made of it however, was when practicing basic multiplication with 3rd graders in a pull-out session at school. The three students I was working with were so excited to play an iTouch game at school and see how many points they could get in the multiplicaiton time trial setting. They were excitedly looking on shouting out answers to whomever was currently taking a turn.
You can say it's a game, how about game center compatibility?
