This is an application based on the drill-and-practice instructional strategy. Similar to memorization, such a strategy presents the tasks to be completed repetitively to build up the foundation skills for more meaningful learning in the future.
This application provides exercises covering basic mathematical skills like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The exercises are targeted for children under 12 years, and sometimes even adults, with varying degrees of difficulty depending on their age.
Upgrade to Basic Math Deluxe to unlock the following features:
- A numeric keypad to enter answers, besides using multiple-choice answers
- Enter values using the usual calculator left-to-right mode, or working style right-to-left mode
- Sound effects
- A times table to practise multiplication tables
- Option to configure max and minimum operand value
- A report card to review your performance in past exercises

Ratings and Reviews
It does not teach math only runs through problems to show what you know. Would be better if it explained why you missed the questions.
Could use some work
This is a good app but only for kids under 10. It would be great If you could make the problems go faster and be able to change the settings. Also to be able to change the level of difficulty would be a great help. It would really help with practicing because then you wouldn't have all this time to think about the problem. Overall this is an okay app as long as it is being used by kids. For people over 10 it is useless. So if you are over 10 and you are the one who is going to be using this app (unless you are really bad and slow at math) don't get it because it would be a total waste of space.
Great free app
Although it should be simple, many people have trouble with arithmetic. This app is perfect for anybody and everybody. Math is used every day and this app reminds me of how important math is. Furthermore, this can be set on any range of numbers. For example, if you can't multiply 17 by 33, you should get this to sharpen your skills.( by the way the answer is 561)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
