Teacherswithapps.com says, “This is a fun and fabulous way for children to learn math facts. Mathopolis will provide many hours of play and replay as children have fun saving the town.”
The target audience for this app is elementary students learning their basic math facts (0’s -12’s for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) or anyone that wants to brush up on their math facts with a fun app.
-Mathopolis is created by the developers of the best-selling math flashcard app, “Math Fact Master”!
-ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION
-NUMBER SETS 0’s – 12’s: This includes facts up to (12 + 12) for addition and up to (12 x 12) for multiplication.
-PROFILES: Each player can set up his/her own profile to save scores and progress.
TWO MODES OF PLAY:
-Choosing the “PLAY” option, you try to complete each level in a game format where a score is earned and you can win medals for completing the level.
-7 Game Options: Addition, Subtraction, Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Multiplication & Division, and All Operators
-Each game has multiple levels that target specific number sets (0’s – 12’s) and culminates with a level that includes all number sets. (0’s are not included for Division since division by zero is undefined.)
-Each level has 3 difficulty selections: Easy, Medium and Hard that correspond to the length of time given to answer the problems.
-Scoring is based on the number of problems answered correctly and how quickly you answer the problems.
-Different medals are awarded for completing a level with all problems answered correctly depending on the degree of difficulty.
-TRAINING: Choosing the “TRAINING” option, you can choose to practice any combination of number sets and operators. You can also choose to work untimed if you prefer.

Math made fun
Pressure is on! Save the building and the people. Timed and engaging.
Great Basic Math Fact App
This is one of the few math fact apps that allows you to practice ALL operators at one time (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). Many apps have all operators within them, but you can only practice one at a time. This app does allow you to work on one operator at a time, but later as students advance you can opt to practice addition and subtraction, or multiplication and division, or all operators at once! It allows multiple users for one device/download which is helpful for families with more than one child that needs to use the game or for classrooms sharing iPads. I like that you can earn three different medals for each fact set which gives students a goal to shoot for-- such as earn minimum bronze level then work up to gold level. Settings allow Rachel or parents to adjust difficulty level between 3 levels, select which operations to practice, and which family group of numbers such as "2s, 5s, 8s." My only complaint is that the game players can get fatigue from playing as the story/premise never really changes. The buildings you fight fires on change, but I would love if a developer made a game with all these features in more of a story setting with different bosses to battle, levels to pass, new awards to earn, etc. My kids get tired of playing this game so more variety would be nice.
Regret I didn't know about this App earlier!
I had to go back to this app to let other moms & dads know that this was the best money I ever spent on an app! My 9 year old asks to play with my phone over & over everyday. I started telling him "do the 8's" & then u can play or whatever number he needs to work on. After less than 10 mins with each number on this app... He mastered his multiplication tables! My only regret is that I didn't get it sooner. Truly in retrospect, I would gladly pay $15 for this app! It has helped his confidence & my stress level & concern.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
