Math skills are quite important in this day and age. While most kids would feel like learning math won’t lead anywhere in terms of everyday skills, having a basic understanding of the concept can go a long way in your lives. You don’t necessarily need high-level math skills to succeed in life, but having a proper understanding of the basics will suffice. You need not learn all of these skills directly from the classroom, as there are a handful of apps out there that help you grasp the concept just fine. We’re going to talk about a few of those applications or games here today which should increase your math skills to a great extent. A lot of these apps are free, so you’re not required to spend a dime up front. Given the value they bring to the table, even paying a bit of money won’t be wasted. So let’s dive in.
Who doesn’t know Sudoku? It’s one of the most popular math games available out there and we frequently see it published in newspapers and other publications. This particular game replicates that experience and allows you to enjoy a good game of Sudoku on the go. It requires a fair bit of concentration and will naturally increase your math skills as it requires calculating numbers on the fly. Be sure not to use a calculator or any other contraptions as that would defeat the purpose of playing this particular game. There are hints within the game, in case you feel lost midway through the game. In addition to offering the answers, the app will also guide you through the process of getting to the answers, making this a pretty handy app overall.
This is perhaps the best learning tool that you need to bolster your math or Sudoku skills. There are a handful of themes available with the app, allowing you to change the appearance of the app as you please. You can find a right-handed or left-handed option in landscape mode to play the game more easily. Overall, this is perhaps the best Sudoku app you can find on the Play Store right now, and we highly recommend you to try it out. It’s a free app, but there are in-app purchases which will unlock a few key features within the app. The app doesn’t need high-end hardware to work and will function on any device with Android 2.3 or higher.
The name leaves no room for imagination and the game offers exactly what you want. The app is designed to hone your math skills by offering lessons and exercises in the form of attractive games, making sure you gain some knowledge while having a bit of fun. This game comes highly recommended for children, and thousands of parents will vouch for this. The app doesn’t just offer multiplication and addition though, as you will also have access to some complex math problems here. The game has a total of two modes and sixteen different types of mathematical tasks, helping you learn in a variety of ways.
The app is updated frequently, which brings a bunch of new features periodically. If English is not your first language, you would be pleased to know that the app can also translate the game in seven different languages. The developer likens this to a brain gym, which is perhaps the best representation of the application as it helps you solve complex problems and offer some exercise to your brain.
Lastly, we don’t want users to think that this game is limited to just kids. Even adults can try this app out to see if they have what it takes to solve simple mathematical equations quickly. The app has been downloaded nearly 1 million times already on the Play Store. It’s free to download but has an in-app purchase on board to help you get a better experience overall. The app is compatible with devices running Android 4.1 and above, thus covering a wide range of smartphones and tablets out there.
Algebra is one of the toughest math problems people face sometimes. One of the common complaints from students is that they fail to understand how it works. It’s hard to tell whether skill is a problem here or just the kind of teaching that modern day schools offer, but the problem is pretty much out there. Things are made easier with an app called Algebra Tutor, which promises to guide you through the process of learning algebra, while not worrying about the end result. Getting a better understanding of the concept is all it takes to know algebra, and that’s what this app helps you achieve.
The user interface is nothing to write home about, though, but that won’t necessarily be a problem considering the kind of learning it offers. If you make a mistake within the app, you will be offered a step-by-step guide to help you understand where you went wrong. There is a wide range of features available with the app, making this a very exciting game to have overall. You will no doubt learn quite a bit about algebra with this app, and we cannot recommend it highly enough to our readers. The app is a free download but comes with advertisements. The app is quite old, which means it’s compatible with devices that are running Android 1.5 or higher. It seems like the developers have completely stopped updating the app, so don’t expect any new features over time.
This is a pretty unique game on this list. It comes with an interactive user interface, encouraging users to play more often and frequently. The basic concept revolves around cards that have two numbers, and when you stack one card over the other, it adds the two numbers and offers the product. The stacks can increase, thus making it more complex to add more numbers as you progress through the game. There are countless challenges within the game here, ensuring that you stayed hooked to it. This isn’t a conventional kids game, which means the adults will have just as much fun playing this.
The user interface deserves particular praise as well, mainly because it comes with a light colored theme which is very easy on the eyes. We highly recommend users to try this out from the Play Store right away. We must warn you that there are a handful of clones for this particular app, mainly because this is immensely popular out there. So be sure to download the right Threes! app from the Play Store. It’s not a free app, unfortunately, and you will have to pay $2.99 to download this fantastic app. That’s not a whole lot considering what it brings to the table. The upside to paying up front is that you don’t have to contend with ads, and you won’t have to worry about in-app purchases either. What you see is what you get here.
This app focuses solely on multiplication, which as we know, can be quite complicated for some kids. However, thanks to the algorithms used by the developers here, multiplication of numbers are made easier than usual. This is meant specifically for kids who find multiplication difficult or hard to grasp. The user interface is nothing to write home about, but that’s not much of a problem to be honest, mainly since it gets the job done just fine. We highly recommend every parent to offer this app to their young ones in order to make learning mathematics and multiplication in particular an easier process.
By simplifying the process of learning mathematics, the developers ensure that kids understand the basic concept pretty well. By learning the ability to multiply numbers quickly, kids can find a way to boost their IQ and overall knowledge of mathematics as well. The app is a free download, although it contains ads. We’re not aware of an ad-free version of this app right now, so this will have to suffice at this point. The app has been downloaded nearly 10 to 50 million times already, speaking volumes about its popularity. The developer mentions that the app works with a variety of devices, and doesn’t specify the Android version that it’s compatible with. Be sure to give it a try right away.
