— Follows the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage and the New National Curriculum for KS1 children.
— Made by me, Miss Ward, a Primary School teacher.

— A final extra hard level based on the new Year 3 National Curriculum.
— Two different input methods. Either multiple choice or keypad mode - adding extra difficult and replayability.
— Children are encouraged to use their mental maths skills but are given the opportunity to use a number line/100 square until the numbers become very large.
— The game has been tried and tested with children, and has been proven to engage those children who struggle with maths as well as those who are high fliers.

Ratings and Reviews
Not a good tool, lacks depth
Has cute animations, but the novelty of the game does not last. Most kids will get board of this game in 10 minutes or less. Additionally the questions are multiple choice which reduces difficulty. The difficulty of the questions also does not scale well, e.g. Even at the highest level it is only adding multiples of 100.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
