1-20 for iPad

Numbers 1-20 is a counting board that can be used for lots of different counting and number activities. Tap on a number to change the color, from black to red to white.

Tap on the colored circles on the left hand side to change the colours of all of the numbers. Drag the counters up from the bottom of the screen to hide or highlight numbers.

This is a great, open ended educational activity for children who are becoming more confident with numbers.

Numbers 0-9 for iPad

This is a simple app for playing with numbers. This app is great for children to use by themselves or as part of a small group, to order numbers, work out number sequences or number problems, or to work as part of a group with an adult, answering questions through the “Numbers0-9” app.


Draggable numerals 0 – 9 are located in stacks at the top of the screen, with draggable addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and equals symbols located in stacks at the bottom of the screen (in portrait mode). Six symbols are included in each stack.

Also included is a handy number line, which is great for ordering numbers. Fantastic at home or at school, this is a great addition to a basic maths app collection!

10s Frame for iPad

A tens frame is a simple yet very effective tool for playing with numbers up to five and ten. This app provides a tens frame and twenty counters, ten blue and ten orange. The ‘tens frame’ is able to be hidden as well, leaving a space for manipulating counters by themselves.

How could my child use a tens frame? Here are some ideas!

Check that the student can recognise the number of dots on a tens frame card instantly without counting.

Make sure the students understands that the dots plus the spaces equal ten. Practise all the combinations that make ten.

Place all ten dots on the frame and ask the students to imagine taking off some dots. For example, for ten minus six the students imagine six dots removed and see that there are four dots left. Check this by actually removing six dots. This leaves four dots exposed.

Practice all 12 combinations of every basic fact. For example the basic fact 2 + 8 = 10 is linked to all these problems:
2 + 8 = ? ? + 8 = 10 2 + ? = 10 8 + 2 = ?
? + 2 = 10 8 + ? = 10 10 – 8 = ? ? – 8 = 2
10 – ? = 2 10 – 2 = ? ? – 2 = 8 10 – ? = 8

Reviews from the App Store
“Tens frame – Awesome for supporting developing addition and subtraction skills.”

100s Board for iPad

“I love, love, love 100s Board. My child has cp, and he has to learn to do math in head because he cannot write on his own…..yet! We use the 100s Board almost daily, and it is always on my list of top 5 apps. He does addition, subtraction, counting coins, even time, as well as the regular things you’d do on a 100s board . . .

. . . It has truly been life-changing for my son as far as math is concerned.”

The 100’s Board app is exactly that! A digital 100’s board that can show and hide all of the numbers to 100. Numbers can be pressed to change from black to red. All numbers can be hidden or shown at the same time, or in rows / columns of ten. Ten draggable counters are also included for even more fun and games!

This is a great educational K-12 app for helping children with their mathematics, making sense of numbers to 100. 100’s Board can be used for counting in 1’s, 2’s, 5’s and 10’s or can be used for any number of math games such as ‘squeeze’ or ‘guess my number’.

Great in the classroom, at home, or on the move! Here’s a review of the 100s Board app from Stuart Charles –>;;

Staple : 100s Board
I like the bit where he says, “I think it’ll be one of those staple apps that should be on every student’s iPad.”

And a review from some children at Yokohama International School –>;;

Reviews from the App Store
“This app is perfect for using in the classroom and for helping children with math. I would recommend it for everyone with children.”

“100s board – Versatile tool to work on counting, identifying missing numbers and developer is quick to respond to emails. Kdg teacher”

“Fine, very basic – My 6 year old enjoys the colorful place holders, but the description of this app did not clearly state that it is a digital manipulative, NOT a tutoring game. I might also suggest to the developers that a number chart should begin with 0 (this chart is useless for teaching math concepts through a number line).”
