Rewards and Avatars:
Students love earning coins and stars and spending the coins on customising their personal avatar scenes.
The arcade mode progresses the student through the syllabus using algorithmic progression and embeds the learning through the scientific methodologies of reinforced learning and spaced repetition.
For students who enjoy a challenge they can join the live anonymised gamified quizzes available every few minutes targeted at their particular level. Students can trigger their own personal live quizzes by inviting friends using their sharing codes. Live quizzes include rhythmic games where they can play along with the beat between questions increasing their score and sharpening up their coordinated which helps with memory and learning.
Once a week students can join the much anticipated live hosted tournament where they get to compete against other Zap users. Tournaments are live quizzes supercharged with a live avatar host and the coming together of users from across the globe to battle it out.
Customisable Content for Teachers:
Using the web dashboard teachers are able to make their own learning paths using the comprehensive database of questions and games covering the whole syllabus. Teachers can focus the paths on the areas they want the students to engage with and even create their own games .
The student's progress and confidence in each area of the syllabus is easy to track in the reporting area of the app. Teachers are able to produce detailed reports of individual and class progress and results and even compare to the national average.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent for children who aren’t fast at mental arithmetic
I downloaded this for my son who has dyscalculia because a lot of apps and games for maths are all timed and really demoralising for him. Although you play against the clock here you can redo the same sum again rather than it ending the turn or counting against you at the end - you get the satisfaction of trying to go as fast as you can but without losing motivation if you can’t go that quickly. We love that! I also really like the video explanations and having real people rather than everything being avatars etc. This is a godsend during this time of home schooling! Fab!
Brilliant and fun new maths app!
My children are loving this new App. They like the format as it reminds them of a few popular games that they already enjoy and because it’s not just times tables they’re not getting bored.
I like the video instructions, you don’t have to watch them but sometimes it helps as a refresher - plus they’re fun!
Well done, a great help whilst we’re learning at home.
Easy to use - the family love it!
My niece and nephew have been using Zap and love it! Their maths skills are improving and they have so much fun playing it!
The school is even interested in getting it for Maths homework to make it more fun for the kids.
