Bottom Line: This fun app is just what the teacher ordered for making adding and subtracting more tangible to young minds. Not only are all of the numbers displayed with accompanying beads that come to life during the problem-solving, but the developer, Marbotic, also offers parents "smart numbers" for sale that include access to all three math apps that they make. No smart numbers? No problem! The app is completely fun and functional without them.
A free math app for teachers and schools? How terrific! I love math apps, and one with over 1000 activities, designed by math experts, is a great find. The parent version is free to download with a subscription for full access.
Teachers definitely need to add this app to their resources for math. Free access for both web and app versions provide engaging activities, worksheets and lesson plans. Matific is aligned with national and state curricula and mapped to many popular textbooks. What a win!

Bottom Line: There are tons of math apps available, but anyone looking for a customizable addition/subtraction app need look no further than More or Less : Learn Addition and Subtraction. This simple, yet fun app will work with children from those learning the basic concept of addition to older children as they learn more complex addition and subtraction equations.
Bottom Line: Like its predecessor OctoPlus, this is a game-style app for basic subtraction fact fluency. It’s a fun way to work on speed without being overwhelming to young kids, and it’s even got three levels to better differentiate to all learners. OctoMinus is even switch accessible and provides practice for math subtraction facts 0-10, in a way much more appealing than timed tests.
