Let me start by saying that is an excellent app. It presents a daily curriculum of six math activities, all of which are engaging and well-done. It covers counting, writing numerals, addition and subtraction.
Second, it is **totally** free. In other words, no in-app, no ads, nada. There aren't even any social media links.
Todo K-2 Math Practice is a very impressive app and a must download if you have kids in that age group.
Todo Math K-2 was designed for students who stuggle in early math, however, which means that non-struggling second graders will probably find it too easy. Great work for K-1 however.

Students with Special Learning Needs
“All means all” is an expression we embrace at LocoMotive Labs and is the inspiration behind our choice of Todo. Todo, meaning “all” in Spanish, is our way of communicating the inclusion of children with learning differences in the apps’ design and development. We define learning differences to include deficits in auditory and visual processing, short-term memory, language delay or under-developed fine motor skills. Students with formal diagnosis can include, but are not limited to students with LD, ASD, ADD/ADHD, Dyspraxia, and Down syndrome.
Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
Beginning in Kindergarten the CCSS for mathematics focus on developing a deep understanding of numeric quantities and an early focus on the meaning of the addition and subtraction operations of these values. Through 1st grade, further development of the understanding of these operations, along with fluency in adding and subtracting to 10. By 2nd grade, the expectation of fluency and understanding are extended to include larger values up to 100. We created Todo K-2 Math Practice to provide students with practice developing their operational fluency alongside visual models to support their understanding of those calculations.
