Number Tap – Math Master is a timed math app, in which users must solve equations as quickly as they can. They have access to addition and multiplication questions in the free version, with additional subtraction and fraction problems in the add-free paid version. A bar on the side of the game screen becomes smaller as the seconds tick by during play. However, users can replenish the meter by answering questions correctly. On easy mode it is easy for adept mathematicians to have extremely long games — which is why it is important to match the users’ skill to an appropriate level of play. Users have the option to choose easy, medium, and hard, which are essentially single, double, and triple digit math problems, respectively. Number Tap – Math Master is an extremely fast paced immersive experience, testing users to think on their feet with both expediency and accuracy. Because their are modes of play for varying levels of difficulty, the app is recommended for children 4 and older.

this app is good for kids who need help with:

Time Management

Being efficient and aware of our use of time and effort.

As users put their computational skills to the test, they must also take into account the clock. The gameclock begins to wane as soon as users are presented with their first question. The only way to stop the game from ending is to answer questions correctly. Giving the correct response restores some of the meter, allowing users a little extra time to solve more equations and ultimately achieve a higher score. In theory, games do not have to end. If users can give the correct response to every question in under a second, the meter will not expire. In this sense, Number Tap - Math Master becomes the mathematics version of an endless racer app, where users try to score as many points until they "crash." Users must search to find that fine line between accuracy and speed. Because questions cannot be skipped -- even when answered incorrectly, it is important that the balance between accuracy and speed favors precision.


Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Number Tap - Math MasterĀ is all about making adjustments. Whether it is adapting to each new questions or trying different strategies to solve a difficult question, users will develop their Flexibility skills very quickly. Questions do not tend to repeat, so users are constantly encountering new sets of problems. And if they provide the wrong answer, they will not be able to move to the next question until they input the correct one. They will not have much time to learn from their mistakes -- only seconds. Therefore users need to possess the adaptive thinking skills to fluidly move among a variety of questions with increased accuracy.


Number Tap - Math MasterĀ deals directly with computational mathematics. Harnessing these skills, according to the app's developers, helps to train the brain. Using the app is a great way for users to stay mentally active, as even older users will find hard mode quite challenging. Understanding how to add and multiply quickly and accurately are important life skills. Even in the advent of the calculator and smartphone, it is important to be able to solve math problems to keep the mind sharp.
