The Targeting Maths apps are created by the same team that created the very popular Reading Eggs website. In creating the Targeting Maths apps, we have bought together all we know about how children learn maths with the powerful interactivity and motivation provided by the iPad. We think it’s an irresistible combination of engagement and learning which will switch on all students, even those who don’t think ‘they’re good at maths.’
Update to work with 64-bit.

App won't work any more??!!!?
I have had this app for a long time and my daughters thoroughly enjoy playing it whenever they get access to my iPad (wish it was iPod compatible too!)
However I recently updated my iOS and the app no longer works. It will open up, allow me to select a child then an area and activity but at this point it freezes! Upon pressing the blue Start Activity button it locks up totally, not even allowing the back arrow to be pressed. Same thing happens when my daughter tries to use her tokens in the mini games. Very frustrating!
I tried powering off my iPad then rebooting - same errors. I tried adding new user names - these wouldn't register, then when they did they wouldn't open and totally disappeared when I shut app down and reloaded it. Eventually I deleted the app completely, knowingly losing all my daughter's progress, in the hope that reloading it from scratch would fix the issue. Now I only get a grey metallic screen!!! It won't even load the start screen!!!! My daughter loves this app and wants to play it but now can't! I was going to buy Year 4 but refuse to now until I can load #3 again as I don't want to pay more money and have it happen again!
Help me please!!!!!
Great addition to the educational apps
I haven't had any trouble with the dropouts or incorrect answers. Love that you can customise the questions to each child (eg focus on the times tables they are working on), and I very much like the way it asks the same question in multiple ways (eg for multiplication sometimes it shows the dots to be counted, sometimes it asks how many wheels on four tricycles etc), so I can see the kids thinking about different approaches to the same question. My son will pick this up in his free time and then feel confident about his maths abilities.
Working in education I can see the value and relevance in this App. More than just skills and drills, Targeting Maths 3 is stand out in content covered in the maths curriculum, with a strong focus on problem solving. Questions are posed in a variety of ways which is essential. The bank of mathematical terms in each strand is worth the cost alone, exposing children to the language of maths. Above all it is engaging so children will be keen to reinforce work covered in their school program. - Happy customer!
