Getting children into mathematics is not easy for many parents, but with the help of useful iOS applications this whole experience can be a much more enjoyable. Whether it is cool maths games or specific areas that need more attention the use of apps could be the ideal way to entertain children while they are learning.
As we take a look at some iPad maths games for kids we find this is probably the best platform for kids to learn from, although these same apps could come in handy on your iPhone, especially when it could be used in waiting rooms to keep your little ones attention away from the dentist or doctors.
Either way there are plenty of apps on offer to make the whole learning experience much more enjoyable, but it might just be worth checking out what is on offer as some children may require more attention in certain areas more than others.
The first app we are going to look at is the free Math Kid by Alex Drel. Available at the App Store this is ideal for those with children within the bracket of 4-12 years old, and with constant awards and feedback this could be the ideal app that could be used for a number of years.
Another free app is Ace Kids Math Games HD Free Lite and this helps younger children learn how to count, subtract and add up using fun animations, while the prize system reward for completing each level is bound to entertain those youngsters.
Kids Academy 123 Tracing is another free app that focuses more on pre-schoolers, helping younger children learn to identify numbers and digits with everything from flashcards, and patterns to memory games and numbers spelling blocks.
For £1.99, Number Monster by Wombi Apps helps children learn to count with varied ways to learn numbers. With plenty of tasks on offer this is more like a game for those little-ones, but adults will not realize how much they can actually pick up from the different scenarios on offer. Fun for children from 3 and upwards this energetic and enjoyable app could be ideal for those with younger kids.
