A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can practice basic math operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. If kids play the timed version of the game, they can also learn how to solve math problems efficiently.

Ease of Play

Good tutorial and math difficulty setting up-front make this game easy to play. Still, some younger kids may need a few tries to master the jump control.

Violence & Scariness

The player "shoots" a laser gun in a cartoon-like way.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Maths: Super Elite is an educational game app that kids can use to practice basic math operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The game is set up like an arcade-style adventure game in which kids work to save Earth by answering Common Core-aligned math problems. As they jump over obstacles, shoot lasers, and solve math problems, they work to defeat aliens who have robbed the adult humans on Earth of their intelligence. Parents can set equation difficulty levels, choose to time the game or not, and track their kids' progress on the Parent Portal for up to five kids. Kid "cadets" start as "noobs" and rank up by completing levels (up to 45). Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

To play MATHS: SUPER ELITE, tap the Play icon, then choose New Player. Watch the intro story and choose your kid's username, gender, and age range (ages 5 and under, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11). After customizing a character, select addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Select the range of numbers on which you'd like your kid to be quizzed; whether the equations are Easy, Medium, or Hard; and whether they're timed or not. Read the mini-tutorials, and then begin to play the game by tapping the forward and back arrows to walk, and the green and red icons to jump and shoot, and solve math problems along the way.

Is it any good?

This fun math game may be especially useful for kids who need more than flash cards to stay engaged while learning basic math operations. The characters on Maths: Super Elite are cute and customizable, and the arcade-style gameplay has math cleverly embedded to practice in Common Core math standards. Parents and teachers will find the multiple settings options helpful to match problems in the game to each kid's (up to five per app) current math level. Some kids on the younger side of the recommended age range (6 and under) may find the game controls a bit difficult to master at first, but the effort to keep trying to learn the taps and double taps is well worth the valuable math practice that can be achieved here amid the fun.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how Maths: Super Elite can help kids achieve their academic goals. Using fun ways to memorize basic math operations may be far more engaging for many kids than rote memorization by flash cards.

  • Talk about timed games vs. games without time pressure. When does your kid like time pressure and when is it better to be off the clock?

  • If kids are frustrated with the level they're playing, ask them if they'd like to change the settings to an easier group of equations until they're ready to move up, or if they want to try another practice method and then come back to the game.
