A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn about addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division and practice skills if they have some prior knowledge. It’s useful that the game can be customized to focus on a certain skill, but there are no settings for difficulty levels within a skill.
Ease of Play
The layout is clean and simple. Navigating to choose the correct answer is a snap.
Products & Purchases
Access to the app store is granted from within the app without a parent gate.

Is It Any Good?
The game is useful for quick practice with the four mathematical operations, but don't expect targeted practice for a particular learning level. However, equations naturally get more difficult as kids move from addition and subtraction to multiplication and division, and the speed in Mathematical Run picks up when kids choose game modes that have more than one operation. Earning points, stars, and ranking on the leaderboard is a good way to motivate kids, as long as they aren't interested in the typical "prizes" that a lot of arcade games dish out.
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.
