A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn numbers, counting, and addition and subtraction to 99 as well as multiplication. They can learn 1-to-1 correspondence and practice correctly writing numerals by tracing. They can see, using visual manipulatives, how addition, subtraction, and multiplication work. They can build fluency practicing math facts. The activities across three grade levels are aligned with Common Core State Standards and include telling time, skip counting, and word problems as well as arithmetic. Verbal and visual support, as well as fine motor options for dragging and dropping or writing in answers, meet the needs for different learning abilities. With Todo Math, kids get solid math practice with no distractions or barriers to learning.

Ease of Play

Verbal instructions and tutorials guide kids through play. The app accommodates different levels of fine motor abilities by giving kids the option of writing numbers with a finger or stylus or dragging and dropping the correct numbers.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Todo Math is designed to help kids of all abilities practice math. "Todo" (pronounced with a long "o" in both syllables) means "all" in Spanish, and this app is designed with learning differences in mind. It can be helpful for kids who have auditory and visual processing issues or language of math issues. It also is beneficial for kids who have fine motor issues. Todo Math is not just for kids with special needs, though -- it's for all learners. Several free levels are included for free, or parents can upgrade for access to the full curriculum and/or free-play sections. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

In TODO MATH, kids work through math missions (31 in the full version), covering skills from counting to multiplication. Kids also can choose the games they want to play in the free-choice section. Each offers simple verbal and visual instructions and gives kids concrete ways to understand abstract math concepts. Kids use manipulatives such as shapes or cookies to solve problems. Accommodating kids with differing levels of fine motor skills, the game allows kids to drag and drop the answers into place or write them with a finger or stylus.

Is it any good?

The developers of Todo Math have taken special care to create a math tool that is safe for kids, inclusive of different learning abilities, and aligned to math educational standards and best practices. The games are straightforward math practice and would be ideal for helping kids complete a few minutes of daily math practice. The drag-and-drop or write-in-your answer options can be tricky at first. Kids have to touch and hold the number to drag it into place, and some traced numbers, if written messily, are not correctly recognized. All in all, there's no gimmick here, just solid math practice with encouraging, supportive feedback.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Encourage kids to spend time practicing math facts daily. Teachers recommend five to 10 minutes per day for elementary school-age kids.
