Addition & Subtraction. Solved.

From the innovators who bring you Times Tables Rock Stars, comes a highly engaging platform for learning to add and subtract… NumBots!

NumBots is all about every child achieving the “triple win” of understanding, recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction, so that they move from counting to calculating.

Suitable from Year 1 (UK) or Kindergarten (US) upwards. Younger players will be able to access the early stages from a mathematical point of view but will find it increasingly harder to reach the level of fluency required to make continued progress.

Amazing app but...

My child has been having lots of fun but when she goes on the shop and scroll through and it’s very laggy. The app is ok

New maths app

Interesting idea of making maths more enjoyable by treating it as a game. Visually colourful and draws you in to want to play. All you need to do is pass levels to earn coins to update your robot and stars to get badges sounds fun right? I believe that teachers can also print out certificates of achievements too.
My only concern is you need to get two stars to progress to the next level. Someone has decided on the time it should take to get the max 3, 2 and 1 stars. If a child has motor function difficulties and does not answer questions fast enough they will repeatedly have to repeat the level. My question is learning maths about the ability to answer questions quickly or have sound understanding and knowledge? I know my son (who loves numbers and maths) would get bored of this and after all if a game makes it difficult to progress they will just stop playing and play a different game.

Great idea, Poor implementation

Making maths fun is a really good idea for young children, my daughter started off loving this. Sadly she has soon become frustrated due to the ridiculous hidden time limit for achieving stars. Expecting a 5 year old who is just embarking on learning maths to complete tasks in a timeframe, without any knowledge of the actual time available is disheartening and destroys the objective of making it fun. Additionally there’s no way to configure the school issued password or persistence in the login details, so we have to track down a slip of paper with a random user name and password every time she wants to play. Great idea ruined by poor execution.
