MathBoard now supports iCloud Syncing, along with a host of other newer technologies, like Text to Speech as well as Speech Input, the Apple Pencil, Slide Over and Split Views and more.

MathBoard® is a highly configurable math app appropriate for all school aged children. Beginning in kindergarten, with simple addition and subtraction problems, through elementary school where learning multiplication and division can be a real challenge. MathBoard will allow you to configure the app to best match the abilities of your individual child/student.

More than just standard drills, MathBoard encourages students to actually solve problems, and not just guess at answers. This is done by providing multiple answer styles, as well as a scratchboard area where problems can be worked out by hand. Students can also turn to MathBoard's Problem Solver for further help. This powerful teaching feature walks students through the steps required to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations. Additionally, the included quick reference tables serve as a valuable learning tool.

Math Activities. These activities include Find the Sign, Equality/Inequality, and Match Math (a memory game). Each activity is based upon the current settings level, so the difficulty will vary based on the student’s knowledge.

Excellent software to teach, review and test your kids. I use this app every evening with my son (9) and daughter (7) and they love it.

Thanks Palaware.

Better then they claim

Very well thought out. Playing ( learning don't tell the kids ) or set up very easy. Where they say it's good for school kids is very true I am 56yrs old. I use it to try and keep sharp ( Im not working ). I would like to suggest that you add quickly, percentages. Quickly so you can keep the number one spot. It's hard to get there harder to stay there. Thanks

Fantastic and Useful!

We use this app almost every school day. My children have memorized their multiplication tables using this app exclusively, but we have used it for addition and subtraction drills and timed drills also. I appreciate that I can control ALL the parameters of the drills/quizzes, and that I can email the records of the children's work to myself so I can keep a record of their work. It is the best math app we have, and we have at least 10. Kids do not get distracted by silly nonsense and unnecessary over the top praise, they are able to focus and work quickly, and the reward is a high score, and they are happy with that.
I have used this app from the moment it came out on the iPad, and I have not had any issues whatsoever. Kids find it easy to use, and they enjoy this app over all the others (they actually fight for who gets to go first to use this for their drills).
THANK YOU for developing and continuing to improve this wonderfully useful app.
