Description

Hit the Button Maths is an app designed to help develop mental maths and calculation skills.
The app is aimed at 5-11 year olds. There are 166 different game modes of varying difficulty so it is useful throughout the primary school age range. Answer as many questions as possible in minute-long games, or you can now practice without the pressure of a countdown timer - a feature which is new for 2019. Questions are randomly generated which means it is very replayable. The game has been carefully designed for children, with large, widely spaced buttons. We recommend that young children play on a tablet.
Six main topics are covered:
* Times tables - up to 10 or 12
* Division - up to 10 or 12
* Square numbers
* Number bonds
* Doubling
* Halving
Between these topics, the four standard arithmetic operations are covered: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
You can create up to 30 player profiles per device to track an individual's high scores (increased from 15 in 2019). If you prefer there's also the option to play as a guest. All data is stored locally on your device so you don't have to worry about privacy issues. We've also made it very easy for children to quickly switch between profiles after playing a game, if they're sharing a device.
After each game, the score achieved is displayed along with the child's high score. Bronze, silver or gold stars and trophies are awarded depending on the score achieved in each game.

Version 1.1.7
My 5 yr old really enjoys this game. The challenges are linked to the end of year 1 mathematics targets and some are for year 2 targets.
I was previously a secondary school maths teacher so I really see the benefit of this app.
It may seem limited in what it offers, but working your way through the challenges and watching your child gain confidence in each area, is undoubtedly beneficial.
My daughter is a excellent at addition within 10 but hates and struggles with the subtraction within 10. But this good, as with a little practise every day, I know she’ll improve.
Previously I’ve been hand writing the sums on paper for her, spending 20-30 minutes per day. but no more! This app saves time because it’s so effective, the timer means she focuses and doesn’t lose concentration, which also means she answers more questions in less time, plus she loves hearing the sounds, and seeing reward trophies.
This app is amazing , best £3 I’ve spent in a very long time.

It’s better then the online version because it counts you’re scores and has an untimed mode were you are not timed so you can practice your maths.

Good app, but has only one set of everything I.e. number bond for 10. Once a child finishes it should change but it always shows the same exercises.

Rubbish !!!

Version 1.0
This is a helpful app but when they move up to a new level which is harder they inevitably get low scores and noises that suggest they’re failing, with an orange ‘try again’ and no stars. While it’s right to monitor their progress this is the complete opposite of how learning works. We should incentivise them to try something beyond their current learning and reward that - not just reward mastery.
My daughter feels discouraged and doesn’t want to try the new level when she’s achieved mastery of the first level.
Please amend the design of this to recognise what important process is happening when they keep trying.

Good

An excellent app! I've been searching for an app which would help my son whose 6 years old to prepare for his year 2 Sats and I've found the exact app for that purpose which is simply the best in the market. Worth every penny!

As a tutor, I've been using the online version a lot, but have now bought the app as in some homes I may not be able to get online.
I ask my tutees to use this for 5/10 minutes a day to brush up on number bonds and doubling and halving (essential for quick mental maths) and their tables. It's just brilliant. I can sit and watch them during lessons and see weak areas easily. The results speak for themselves. Once they have a grasp of a times table (by using the free, fantastic DK times tables app), they go onto this to improve. We also use adding and subtracting with increasing difficulty.
If your child needs help with maths then you will be doing them a huge favour buying this app. As for recording progress (mentioned by another reviewer), they do that by seeing how many they get right in a minute. Their progress is shown to them by beating the score and by knowing a lot more than they did before.
Seriously great and I'll use it all the time.

Excellent app, does what it says on the tin!

Great app which my son aged 8 really enjoyed playing on the iPad and found it very easy to use. He needs to improve his times tables and I think this app has already helped as it's a fun way to learn. He even asked to play! It is well designed with clear menu choices which increase in difficulty. There's six different types of game in all so I think this app will help my son's mental maths generally and be useful for a few more years yet.
