Cab anyone recommend an app that will help my dd improve her maths a bit. Something reasonably fun which will actually increase her math skills at the same time.

There is a school based game called sum dog but she hates it so looking fir an alternative

With my DD I use Math Bingo and Times Table Mountain. I also tried Hit the Button but she did not like this much (it felt like too much pressure to answer quickly).

How old is she? My DD (7) and DS (5) both adore Pet Bingo. They have to answer sums (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division - easy to hard) from the given answers on a bingo board, and when they get a line, they either get a pet they can name or food to feed the pet.

Doodle Maths works well for my son (aged 8)

DD uses Doodlemaths too. It assesses her current knowledge, then gradually introduces new subjects. She gets rewarded with coins she can spend on her doodle pet.

She's 10 would that be too old for doodle maths?

I like the sound of it

I don't think 10 is too old. It's aimed at 7-11, but I'm pretty sure they also do one for 12+.

I have downloaded both thank yousmile

I've only got the free trial part though will she be able to access enough without the full 3.99 app?

We used Sumdog at our school but then Sumdog changed the structure and it's rubbish.

We now use Mathletics but I don't know if this is available as a stand- alone thing.

Hit the button is good for rapid-fire mental maths
