Want to improve your math skills with out having to memorize a hundred tricks? Mental Math Cards is designed to help people of all ages and skill levels improve their arithmetic abilities through easy to remember (and use) tips, practice question sets, and an addictive game. Unlike many other math apps, advanced problems are also supported to keep things challenging as your skills improve.

Mental Math Cards is fully integrated with Game Center - providing both Leaderboards and Achievements. The Game Center features allow you to test your skills against the rest of the world and to share your scores and accomplishments with friends.

Mental Math Cards provides step by step instructions on how to approach solving all of the problems it shows - for all operations and difficulty levels. Each difficulty level for each operation type is carefully thought out to build on the skills mastered in previous levels. For instance, hard multiplication problems are shown to be solvable by breaking problems down into medium and easy level problems.

Students: Prepare for the math sections of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and MCAT, as well as for regular school tests. Many tests don't allow for calculators, and greater comfort with arithmetic will still improve your scores even if calculators are allowed.

Professionals: Impress colleagues, family, and friends with lightening fast and accurate mental math skills. Impress interviewers during job interviews that have quantitative component by solving problems with out needing a pencil and paper.

Mental Math Cards supports 1 by 1, 2 by 1, 2 by 2, and 3 by 3 digit problems. Given that flexibility, Mental Math Cards is as appropriate for use by beginning students as it is for college graduates looking to sharpen there skills for quantitative interviews and to impress friends & colleagues.

Mental Math Cards supports all four of the major arithmetic operations - as well as a mixed operations mode that randomly shows all types of problems.

- Addition
- Subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division

Pretty good game but one issue

I’ve been playing this game for pretty much about a year and I am a master but when i do addition i get something correct and i answer the second question very fast but th recheck distracts it wastes time and without the check you know what questions you did right at the end cause maybe it will repeat a same question again who knows and this issue happened to me for a year straight and today I had enough of it and so the check should be removed and I am in 8th grade right now that’s why I’m good at math hope you read this review... But so far this has been a awesome game.. for improving my math and I’m am first in my class from this game but now I am too fast for this game so I hope you remove the check and also my high score is 598 just to let you guys know I could’ve got more bu the check distracted but so far this game is AWESOME

Developer Response ,

That is an amazing score! Thanks for the review - and the feedback.

We need to give your suggestions some strong thought. We're trying to balance how fast you're able to go with pauses that give people enough time to understand how they did... Its a tricky balance. But - lets see if we can come up with something...

Take a break from Sudoku and do some math.

Pretty good app to keep up on your math facts. I wish more students in class could do simple math in their heads. They just don’t seem to have it anymore. This could help. And for adults, you wouldn’t be happy to admit you couldn’t read, right? So why be satisfied saying “I can’t do math?” Math facts are really a development of memory more than anything and this is a pretty good way of doing it. I wish the developers would augment their settings for the mid level multiplication segment. Any two digit times any two digit is a little challenging so maybe programming the second multiplier to be 15 or less would be good? Then another level to practice any two digit number times two digits between 16 and 20. Just an idea. Thanks for creating this cool app!

Five ⭐️ !!!

I give this app a Five star rating because it’s good for you and you can see your accuracy, that means how fast you go. It can push you to your limit and there’s even a time challenge that you can pick and that gives you like a 2 min timer!!! I think people should also try XtraMath first because it’s so fun and you can make Mr. B have a sad face on that he didn’t get the question before you did. Let’s get to the main point here though. This app is fun and educational. It can test your and your child’s knowledge and you can even select medium, easy, and hard math facts. Thank you for reading this review and I hope that you have just as much fun playing this game as I do! Thanks! Bye! Have a good rest of your day or have a good day!!! Bie!
