Math Critters

By Learning Yard

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Math Critters teach your kids how to add, subtract, multiply and divide with ease as they chase the Math Wizard to improve their arithmetic skills. Choose to embark in an adventure by chasing the Math Wizard across 5 math lands or engage your competitive spirit in unlimited arcade play with 1 or 2 players.

Built by a team of UC-Berkeley education and gaming enthusiasts from the ground up and tested with numerous families, Math Critters is kid- and parent- approved to make arithmetic fun and rewarding for kids.

- Oh no! The Math Wizard turned our cute Critters into blocks. They must prove that they can solve math problems correctly before they can return to their Critter forms. Your job is to help them!
- Chase the Math Wizard across 5 Lands - mountains, forests, deserts, volcanoes, and WizardLand - and solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division puzzles
- Watch the numbered blocks fall with real physics, but don’t let them pile up to the top of the screen!
- 4 different powerups add an additional level of fun to each level
- 3 difficulty settings to accommodate different skill levels
- Your score adds up as you complete levels - see how high it can go!


- Kids can engage their competitive spirits by playing against family members, teachers, or other kids in the two-player arcade mode.
- The screen is split in two to allow simultaneous play
- Speed of blocks increases every 30 sec to add excitement and difficulty
- Practice a specific equation type (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) or combine all 4 for more challenge

- Try to beat your high score as you last as long as possible
- Just like Two-Player mode, speed of blocks increases every 30 sec to add excitement and difficulty
- Practice a specific equation type (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) or combine all 4 for more challenge

- Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division combine in multiple ways to test kids’ math skills
- On-screen equations show correct and incorrect answers as you tap the blocks to visually reinforce math operations
- Wrong answers make the floor rise, while correct ones make it fall, rewarding kids for taking time to choose the right solution

Great mental math game for kids

My son loves the little blocks and had a blast doing the first two islands (he hasn't learned multiplication in school yet). I liked being able to set difficulty and choose equations, and the two player is a great way to play together and see his progress.

Love this app!

Perfect game to keep honing your kids' mental math skills. Keeps them entertained for hours!


My girls really enjoy playing with this app. It is a good intermediate level elementary math app.
