Talk Maths is a fun way to get children talking about maths and working together to solve problems. This app provides four games to help children practise their mathematical vocabulary and speaking and listening skills.
Talk Maths is designed for pairs of children using iPads in school.
One child plays ‘blue’ and the other plays ‘green’, with each child having their own colour-coded area of the screen.
