Ipad App Review - Quick Math+

Thu 16 October, 2014

Quick Math+ is a simple to use maths app, which allows children to practise their mental arithmetic skills. It works by asking children simple questions, which they answer by drawing the number needed using their finger. The children work against the clock, which builds in a competitive element straight away, something that children seem to relish. It has a good level of differentiation, as each set of questions has four difficulty settings.
