A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn fundamental multiplication, division, and fraction skills. The activities require kids to complete times tables, identify even numbers, odd numbers, prime numbers, and multiples of numbers from 3 to 12, identify equivalent fractions and decimals, work with time calculations, and solve basic multiplication and division problems. There are three levels of difficulty, and kids earn prizes for completing sets of activities within each level. A tracking program shows which skills kids have completed and whether or not they completed them on the first attempt. Kids can keep trying when they get an answer wrong, but they don't get any hints or constructive feedback. Love to Count 2 offers kids a fun way to practice and build math fluency.
Ease of Play
It's easy to navigate, change levels, and view progress reports and prizes earned.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Love to Count 2. Times Tables and Fractions is a medieval-themed math game that kids can use to practice multiplication, division, and fraction skills. The activities are fun and engaging with a lot of variety. For example, in one activity, kids drag tiles into place on a colorful snake to complete a times table. In the next activity, they work with even numbers to help a treasurer make his way through a maze. Progress is tracked, and kids can earn prizes for completing levels.
Is It Any Good?
Love to Count 2. Times Tables and Fractions is a great tool for kids who need to practice fundamental math skills. The activities are engaging, the medieval theme is fun, and the graphics are colorful and appealing. Kids will be motivated to collect prizes for their treasure chests, and it's helpful to view the progress charts to identify possible areas of weakness. For example, if kids are not able to accurately complete a particular skill on the first attempt, it's easy to identify this and have kids spend more time on the skill by repeating certain activities.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
