Kids and adults can’t put it down!
Practice your mathematics while racing the clock in this innovative iPad app. Featuring advanced handwriting recognition and a beautiful interface, Quick Math will take your general arithmetic skills to the next level.
Quick Math is perfect for students in grades 3 to 6, or for anyone wanting to improve their general math skills. With multiple difficulty levels and a focus on self-improvement, Quick Math provides increasing challenges as your skills develop.
• Practice mental addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and mixed operations
• Develop arithmetic fluency and improve mental strategies

• Practice handwriting
Quick Math improves arithmetic fluency and promotes development of mental strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and mixed operations. With a focus on self-improvement, Quick Math provides individual feedback on your child’s progress as they develop arithmetic skills at their own pace. Quick Math is perfect for children aged 6 - 12, providing increasing challenges as children grow and progress.
Quick Math allows students to practice and develop general arithmetic at their own level, while providing increasing levels of difficulty as children master arithmetic skills. Individualised user profiles allow devices to be shared among multiple students whilst allowing students to track their own personal progress. With answers written directly on screen, Quick Math also improves handwriting skills and strengthens muscle memory, promoting transference of new skills to traditional classroom tasks.

Great way to practice basic skills
Although I give this app a 5 for what it already offers, I think there are a lot of cool things they could add. I love that you are able to write the answer on the screen rather than picking a pregenerated answer or typing in numbers. It is also very motivating to see how much time it takes to solve the problems. Students who are learning their basic facts, or trying to get quicker at them can use this in several ways. First, they are practicing their facts and get immediate feedback about accuracy and fluency in the area they are working on. Second, it requires students to make legible numbers, that are facing the correct direction, otherwise it won't accept the answer. Third, it allows students to track their progress as they continue to practice so they can see it is working and meet their goals. I think this app makes learning basic facts fun and motivating and every school age child could use it.
This app is awesome! Every time I spend 5 min on this app, I can answer math facts in a blink of an eye! I suggest getting this app for any child with different math skilled need, with a whole bunch of different levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced, extreme! I love the intermediate level, it's perfect for my math skills! Handwriting recognition is good, better than older version! My teacher specifically told me that this app is a perfect fit for me.. She told me that she could tell I've been practicing and that I have a lot of improvement. This app is great for anyone who needs extra practice in math, but really it's great for everyone!!
Excellent flash card app
I love that you can write the answer to the questions with your finger anywhere on the screen. There were some problems with recognition of my writing though; I could not find a place that showed how to draw the numbers in a way the app recognized, which would have been helpful (like, under the button which allows you to choose which writing style you use). It is just a fun flash-card like app, but the timing element is very fun and motivating, and the levels get progressively difficult, allowing lots of room for replay. A great app for math drill.
