Preschool Math Apps, Games, and Websites

Long before kids are ready for long division or algebra, they still need to learn their 1-2-3's. Set a solid foundation for your preschooler with these polished math products and counting apps, which will dazzle young ones and get them thinking mathematically. Though apps that introduce numbers and basic arithmetic are obvious choices, encouraging mathematical thinking -- like recognizing amounts without numerals -- helps kids manipulate numbers more easily down the road. Get your little one off to a head start with fun, educational tools. And when they're ready, check out our list of the Best Math Games for Kindergarten.
