Want to improve your math skills with out having to memorize a hundred tricks? Mental Math Cards is designed to help people of all skill levels improve their arithmetic abilities through easy to remember (and use) tips, practice question sets, and an addictive game. Unlike many other math apps, advanced problems are also supported to keep things challenging as your skills improve.

Mental Math Cards is fully integrated with Game Center - providing both Leaderboards and Achievements. The Game Center features allow you to test your skills against the rest of the world and to share your scores and accomplishments with friends.

Mental Math Cards provides step by step instructions on how to approach solving all of the problems it shows - for all operations and difficulty levels. Each difficulty level for each operation type is carefully thought out to build on the skills mastered in previous levels. For instance, hard multiplication problems are shown to be solvable by breaking problems down into medium and easy level problems.

Students: Prepare for the math sections of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and MCAT, as well as for regular school tests. Many tests don't allow for calculators, and greater comfort with arithmetic will still improve your scores even if calculators are allowed.

Professionals: Impress colleagues, family, and friends with lightening fast and accurate mental math skills. Impress interviewers during job interviews that have quantitative component by solving problems with out needing a pencil and paper.

Mental Math Cards supports 1 by 1, 2 by 1, 2 by 2, and 3 by 3 digit problems. Given that flexibility, Mental Math Cards is as appropriate for use by beginning students as it is for college graduates looking to sharpen there skills for quantitative interviews and to impress friends & colleagues.

Mental Math Cards supports all four of the major arithmetic operations - as well as a mixed operations mode that randomly shows all types of problems.

- Addition
- Subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division

Great practice tool

I'm re-sitting my GCSE in math and this is the app everyone needs who's rusty in the subject. Quick fire questions as easy or as hard as needed to get back in the swing. I've given four stars because I think the app could be improved if you could programme it to practice particular sets i.e particular times tables or have a section for questions that you answer wrong so you can practice them specifically. But this is great glad I've found it at the start of my course.

Great app

This app is brilliant and it has helped me in maths as I struggle sometimes. I think it could have a great impact on people if you feel like you struggle in the subject.

One thing i would suggest is that you make it so all the questions you got wrong you could redo or practice on. Many people have said this and it is a good idea to make it fit to your needs more but apart from that i think this is a really nice app which can help many people and make everyone stronger at the subject.

Excellent mental maths training software

My mental maths was quite poor, but I developed coping strategies and reached for the calculator whenever possible. Regular use of this app has really helped me improve my confidence and speed. I now look for opportunities to solve problems in my head. I should have put in a bit of effort years ago. This app and the tips have been great tools.
