Mighty Math Apps

Categories: Curriculum Ideas

Everyone and their mother knows how much I am obsessed with my iPads. With more and more amazing apps released each day, I’m sadly admitting – my obsession is at an all time high. I’ve had a few posts detailing my love of that small touch screen box of heaven; I’ve talked about my favorite Literacy Apps, Free Apps, and Charting Data on the iPad (my geeky all time fav!).

Here are some of my current fav math apps. I’ve realized lately my math curriculum has been slacking a little. Teaching reading is so overwhelming and all consuming sometimes math gets pushed to the wayside. I have a few new products coming out so be on the look out 🙂

When I run my direct instruction station, my students who are higher functioning are in pairs. If I need to work one on one with one student, it’s great to have a meaningful activity for the other student to use on the iPad.

Flash to Pass Free This one is my favorite! Pick any operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) and level of difficulty and student completes 50 equations. To put a little frosting on the mathimatical cupcake – the flashcards are timed! BAH – you know what that means. Data time!

Adding Apples: I love this app because it has an awesome visual representation of adding two numbers using different colored apples.

Coin Genius:  Identify which coins add up to each amount. This app is free 🙂

Freefall Money: Another great money app. Identify the total of the coins.

Juicy Math: Super cute puzzle app. Love this one! The visuals are great support for students who still need the help of some visual prompts while adding.

Number Magic: This a great app for working on one to one correspondence and counting. Free. 

Sushi Monster: This one is obscenely cute. The monster is the sushi chef. There are multiplication and addition options – pick which two numbers add up or multiply up to the target number. Makes me hungry for a spicy salmon roll mmmm.


 Any great math app recommendations??


  1. I know you like GFAOTD 🙂 iTeach for the Classrom group on Facebook is also great and worth checking out. She focusses on academic apps for elementary, high and special needs and organsises some great freebies. Australian based but with many for US users. I must admit, sourcing great apps has become somewhat of an obsession of mine!

  2. Oops…iTeach: Apps for the Classroom is the correct name

  3. Thanks for the tip and DITTO on that obsession! I am obsessed as well 🙂 Checking it out right now!

  4. I know it isn’t a math app, but thought if you didn’t know about it you might be interested.

  5. Sorry, don’t know what happened to my first reply about Sight Words Buddy, but I just realized it apparently didn’t go through. Anyway, just google it and you will find multiple downloads for it. My students enjoy it and have had success with it. I have often recommended it to others.

  6. Cool! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  7. ToDo Math is a GREAT math app! It has everything from identifying numbers, algebra, time, money, you name it!
